They seem to be using James more for cover now makes me think it will be him getting weekends eitjer breakfast or 1 till 4 

Yeah he's on more than usual including this Sunday and then 3 more shows in May according to the above. Makes me think it's James for the weekend shows also

For some reason there is 'Summer on Radio 1' listed on Sunday 2nd June, could this be replacing M&M until July?

It’s on Saturday and Friday that week too.

I guess this would make sense, as it gives them roughly 6 weeks off weekends until they start the new show?

The Summer on Radio 1 thing makes me wonder whether they might be doing something similar to last year again where they have a temporary schedule over the summer before introducing changes in September - maybe the new host won’t start until after the summer?

I wouldn't be surprised if they do this around June time:

05.00 Ore Olukoga

07.00 Greg James

10.30 RMC

14.00 VKJ 

That'll probably happen (for my guess) from the 17th June.

And for weekends:

07:00 Sam & Danni

11:00 Gregor Davidson

15:00 Charlie Hedges

Maybe Fridays aswell:

07:00 Greg James

11:00 Gregor Davidson

14:30 Jack Saunders

But they said the main changes would happen in July.

Yeah I don’t think they’ll be anything that drastic - maybe a week or 2 of cover on early breakfast etc, but maybe just having that weekend afternoon slot covered over the summer means they can put someone on from September who maybe isn’t available until then?

I think more likely it'll just be a temp presenter for weekends 1-4 to give Matt & Mollie time off, plus time to plan and pilot the new show.

I'm guessing there is also a stack of weekend events like Glastonbury

Yep think they mentioned that this is their penultimate weekend of shows but then they will also be on air during Big Weekend and they mentioned they'll be doing 'Party Anthems' on stage during Big Weekend which sounds intriguing.

Will miss Matt & Mollie on weekends - they in particular have made that Friday afternoon slot their own - but they'll be great on weekdays.

Do wonder if 'Summer on Radio 1' is just a placeholder name until they decide on who will cover the interim.

While it's obviously not the case it does feel like they've forgotten there's that weekend afternoon slot to fill given no permenant presenter has been announced for it yet.

I suspect they’re gonna tie the announcement into something, or they’ve changed plans. I know we’ve said it as a joke but I wonder if Aled was planning on giving it to someone like Danny Beard, but he’s decided against that after the last few weeks.

Seems clear to me, though, that if Jordan hadn’t left, then Katie would’ve taken Dean and Vicky’s slot and Matt and Mollie would’ve stayed on weekends, which probably explains why they haven’t picked a replacement yet. If it was going to be the obvious choice, I.e. James Cusack, surely they would’ve announced it by now..?

Yeah they make the weekend shifts go so much quicker. Like today, the piece about Matt falling asleep in the cafe was funny, it's clear to see why they're going to weekdays.

It could well be they were thinking of Danny for it and like you say have decided against that, or like I said at the start it's James Cusack and the slow down on the announcement is him getting out of his contract. Remember he works for radio 1's main rivals.

I think it's quite telling that he's doing more r1 cover than usual, tomorrow and then a further 3 weekend shows in a row

I think this year has taught us we know nothing 🙂

Nobody would ever have credibly predicted Jordan leaving and all the changes that followed.   I have another interest outside radio and it is exactly the same - the stuff you never expect to happen is exactly what does.

Would love for it to be like the Summer Friday Thing that me and @DC were remisincing about recently.

Lots of events going on that could easily form part of it. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/summer/cardiff/thursday/1.shtml

I think they should just bring that back as was. It's been nearly 20 years, so do it with a whole bunch of new DJ's. 

on the grid.

Right so prediction time. I think “Summer on Radio 1” which is on the schedule for Friday to Sunday 1-4 from June sticks around longer than the other changes in July. I think that lasts until September which is when we get the new weekend afternoon show. I think they’ll want to give Danny longer on air to see if they improve. I can’t see that happening, so my guess is in September they move Sam & Danni to weekend afternoons (at that point they’ll have been on weekend breakfast for a full year), and they bring James Cusack in to do weekend breakfast.

    • 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.
