Connor does sound great. He needs a show on Radio 1 Dance, maybe that new breakfast show on it?

Surely Arielle will be in with a shout for that after leaving early breakfast?

It's nice to see some praise here while Digital Spy is ripping him apart! 😄

some people are absurdly critical. On a show like that the key thing is good energy and Connor has that. Though Mistajam is the master of that

DS critics are definitely the harshest. I rate Connor.

Actually the worst tends to be those who comment on Radio Today news stories.

People who haven’t listened to younger oriented radio stations in years who say things like “who?” about any job going to any presenter aged younger than 50.

Echo what most have said here. Connor has great energy which is important for that sort of slot and the shame for him is that the dance line-up is so strong that there's no obvious 'in' for him to get a regular slot -Danny, Sarah, Pete Tong, Arielle, Charlie Hedges, Jerry and Charlie Tee are all great in their slots.

A live show on Radio 1 Dance really feels the obvious way to get a proper foot in the door at Radio 1.

Although to be fair to the DS critic I think it was just the one poster and can very much hear Connor in my head saying 'in for the legend that is Charlie Hedges'.

I stand guilty as charged as the DS poster.... It was I

Okay, so yes Connor has good energy and does the show well, I take it back, however, my last experience of him he spent every other link saying "It's Connor Coates in for the ledge that is Charlie Hedges" and then he started saying "Clem Douglas" - again after critisising that I see she is styled as that sometimes

The point I was trying to make was, yes we know it's Charlies show, we know she is a ledge, and we know she is not here today, no need to keep reminding us

Regards R1 dance, I suspect Arielle is pointed at the drivetime slot to go against Mistajam unless we know it is breakfast that will be live ?

Apologies to Connor and anyone offended by my comments, was just going on my past experience of Mr Coates, who seems to be a very competnt presenter

Nothing to apologise about, I was just intrigued on how DS and UM react

    • 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.
