Going Home with Vick, Katie and Jamie

Agree with most of this above. Listening to only vick and katie today, I was thinking that it doesn't need Jamie. Its very jarring how sometimes he's there and sometimes he isn't. I don't think it needs to be a trio.

Surely there are bigger problems at the moment, Danny on a pretty big slot on the station is literally unlistenable.

I dunno if it is me but even Vick and Katie don't sound as good in that slot alone as they did before.

Maybe I have just fallen out of love with it all.

Jamie is definitely very divisive though.  Some people's "radio comedy gold" is other people's "unlistenable".  I have liked Matt and Mollie, Matt on his own, Mollie and Jordan etc etc.  But couldn't listen to Matt with Jamie.

No hate on Jamie but I just don't like his sense of humour.

Each to their own hey?

Sorry explain what you mean there please? Danny is unlistenable??

Have to say even if there is a good reason for Jamie to be off on Thursdays the optics of them a month in still not be able to do a 'normal week' of the scheduled team for a brand new show isn't great. And if Jamie was meant to be away on Thursdays clearly nobody let whoever runs BBC Sounds know.

Who would've guessed from the Vick & Jordan days though that it would be Vick who's the everpresent so far (just kidding Vick - really rate her as a DJ and I know she has a lot of other engagements outside of Radio 1).

Yep I really struggled with Matt & Jamie which was a shame as otherwise really like Matt.

Unfortunately it comes across on-air whether it's actually try or not that Jamie doesn't know a lot about radio and doesn't seem particularly desperate to improve either or if I'm being generous he's playing an act - neither of which particularly appeals.

The everyman act can sometimes work but you need to have that natural likability and appeal for it to do so in the way that way Chris Stark did.

I mean even towards the end of his stint with Matt Jamie was struggling with getting the Whatsapp number right which is a basic.

I hate reverse snobbery and I post this reluctantly as we shouldn't hold Jamie's background against him, but I do think many listeners will find it hard to identify with Jamie.  One of the things that made Jordan so popular was he sounded like the mate you go for a pint with who always has a great story to tell.

Jordan, Greg, they’re down to earth. That’s what makes them resonate so much with listeners.

It’s not necessarily the fact that Jamie is posh. It’s that the show seems to be really keen to play on it. Within 10 minutes of their first show they were playing voice notes from his Celeb mates. Compare that to Vick and Jordan’s first week in September 2021; their first links were about Jordan’s awkward encounter with his plumber and Vick slapping a roast chicken. 
 

And then on Monday this week, Jamie is sulking (exaggerated sulking admittedly) about something, this ultimately being that another of his celeb mates has cancelled his appearance on their show, and they’re literally reading out texts such as ‘I’m sure this is going to be relatable to the entire population.’

But he is posh, the opposite to Jordan. Not down to earth. You’re right, the show does play on it. If I’m honest, I stopped listening to Going Home, the day Laing started. Sam and Danni were better. 😂

I was gutted when Jordan left - that was my favourite show on the station but I found Sam and Danni a decent replacement...whereas this...

Todays show with Vick and Katie was excellent, just like the old days. 
 

It felt like Jamie is at the centre of the show when he’s on. Typically every show always started with something going on in Vick or Jordan’s lives. Now it feels like it’s Jamie every day: (Jamie’s got a nighttime routine, Jamie’s sad, Jamie calls his parents mummy and daddy, etc.) It feels like Vick and Katie are his side pieces when arguably it should be the other way round.

This might not even be a production decision; Vick said yesterday that it feels like Jamie is the bosses’ favourite, so anyone hoping this is a short term engagement for him may be disappointed…

Katie’s posted on Insta how she’s poorly at the mo (bad cold by the sounds of things). Vick is off all next week and no way could Jamie possibly present solo (imagine!).

So if Katie can’t present on Monday be interesting to hear what they do. Suspect they’ll be asking Matt Edmondson if he’s available, but not too many obvious options at all.

Danny beard might be available.

They might just tell Jamie not to come in and give it to Sam and Danni instead tbf.

Arielle’s off Early Breakfast all week but is doing her new show on Thursday so she may be about as well.

Arielle is in Dubai and Ibiza - I think she has pre-recorded her new show this week (at least that’s what it looked like from her Insta stories on Thursday)

I think if Katie is off it will mostly likely be Matt - he’s the only other one who has presented with Jamie before

Where is Jamie? It felt like he was settling in when Vick wasn’t on but he’s not been on since last Tuesday now. They’ve not even mentioned him, in fact they’ve mentioned Jordan more than they’ve mentioned him in the last two days.

A simple check on his instagram would answer all your questions , he’s on tour with his wife and the team behind his podcast. I suggest anyone to follow the radio presenters, you will learn a lot about their other jobs and work commitments.

I suggest you follow the other DJs too if so, you will learn the hardest working will go further 🤣

I see Katie (and Mairead) were out with Jordan tonight.  I don’t listen to the show any longer, I am shocked they are allowed to mention Jordan.

Since Easter at the beginning of April, Vick, Katie and Jamie have been on together just 4 times. Which is crazy for a brand new, high profile Radio 1 show. Imagine Jordan being off that regularly on Capital because of ‘other commitments’ - would never happen. 

Jamie has only presented 6 times in the past month. Katie has presented every single show. Given how she got the job at the last minute I think very likely she would have had other commitments, which she will have cancelled/rearranged, cos being Radio 1 drive time host is a massive gig.  

Vick, Katie and Jamie - 4 times; Vick and Katie - 10 times; Katie and Jamie - 2 times; Katie and Lauren - 2 times.

    • Conor Knight is in for Sam & Danni on Sunday 23rd June.
    • James Cusack on 19th July at 1pm.
    • I think it looks Ore in the weekend slot for the summer
    • Best New Pop is disappearing from the schedule after next Friday as well.    Long overdue decision, although it made more sense having the Friday EB presenters do it than Mollie pre-recording it, it should’ve been removed when Matt and Mollie moved to weekend afternoons back in 2021 and replaced with a wider new music show.
    • Still now news on AFTRNOONS T WEEKENDS   
    • I wonder if those Charlie Hedges dance anthems will be repeats of the ones on Saturdays or new programmes. She’s posted on Instagram so I wonder if they’ll be new editions.
    • Hopefully it will cut into their Rickie Melvin or Charlie time lol, it's getting tiresome (to me).
    • This is getting ridiculous. Launching all these schedule changes and still not announcing a new host for weekend afternoons. They’re a bit late on announcing the festivals bit as well. 
    • So RMC show will basically be 'Hello, it's us', followed by the news, then the Live Lounge and 'Goodbye, see you tomorrow'. 1.45 four days a week seems like a bit too short for three hosts 😁 Btw, still no news on weekend afternoons.
    • Roundup: - Radio 1 Breakfast extending to 11am Monday-Thursday only - Sam and Danni hosting Friday EB until January 2025 from Cardiff - New Dance shows: Arielle Free on Radio 1 Dance Morning from 15th July, Danny Howard on Thursday nights, Pete Tong on Saturdays. All on the BBC Sounds Dance stream. - Martha taking over Annie Nightingale’s slot permanently.
    • Later this summer Radio 1 will also launch a number of new shows on the BBC Sounds Radio 1 Dance stream. Arielle Free will host Radio 1 Dance Morning, which will launch on 15 July and be available Monday to Sunday. Danny Howard will present Radio 1’s Dance Party Warm Up, a weekly show available every Thursday (6pm – 8pm) getting listeners ready for the weekend. Pete Tong will curate his Essential History of Dance a weekly show (Saturdays, 7pm – 8pm) dedicated to telling the story of the Dance genre. There will also be a new evening specialist series which will see Radio 1 Dance collaborate with key Dance music labels Defected Records, HE.SHE.THEY. and DnB Allstars. Additionally, Connor Coates will present a daily playlist – Radio 1 Dance – which will come from Northern Ireland, playing the best new, current and classic Dance tracks, and Charlie Hedges’ Radio 1 Dance Anthems will be streamed daily across afternoons. https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/2024/radio-1-summer-schedule-2024/
    • Longer Greg with Sam and Danni covering early breakfast on Fridays until January 2025. Martha is presenting Annie Nightingale's show permanently.
    • I never really started, my association with that 102.2 frequency around my way stopped when Galaxy did. Radio 1 do go mad on artists too, they used to over 20 years ago during my peak listening. These days it's Raye for instance who's severely overrated. But their main playlist is far more expansive. Stuff like Jungle Back on 74 last year which I liked was played by Radio 1, never saw it make Capitals playlist.
    • I find frankly with certain tracks or artists Radio 1 can be just as bad sometimes as Capital at overplaying them. Plus there's certainly an overlap in playlist - whether I tune in to either I'm not too far from Espresso, Rudimental, Benson Boone or Teddy Swims. I'm a bit of a nomad really - the Radio 1 playlist can often be a bit of a miss for me but I wouldn't listen to Capital for long periods either as it understandably feels very commercial.  But also I'm not ready to be pensioned off to Radio 2 yet. Basically I end up a mix of Jordan at Breakfast (but have tuned in to Matt & Mol and Sam & Danni covering Breakfast the past few weeks), dropping into Radio 1 if a DJ or show I like are on and I'll also have a healthy dose of Capital Dance.
    • Calum Leslie in for Shanequa on Life Hacks on 30th June.
