They make it more bearable when there's a pre-record and the newsreader isn't sure when to end the news, which in turn ruins the music. They only have to wait for this bit now.

It's quite impressive what they can do with a beat these days. But when did that first become the Radio 1 'logo'. It just seemed to have started in the news and progressed to the chart before progressing to Radio 1's Big Weekend beds.

Some of them are bad like the one on The Killers track, Human. But I suppose they are sometimes quite difficult to create especially if a song starts with a percussive intro, or a song without a melodic intro.

In general, I like them apart from when they chop up the song or add silly effects to make the Idents fit.

Compared to what? It only replaced a newsbeat outro which was so loud you missed the start of a song anyway.

I don't remember that. Unless its the same thing as what they use at the 6.30am Newsbeat which has got a mini ramp up to the logo where the Dom says 'It's 6.30, time for the Chris Moyles show.' They also use it over christmas on Newsbeat. Any clips?

Yes, that is it. That was what you heard and sometimes the song started at the same time and you missed the start.

They have started recycling old 1tros and using them as standard jingles to go over any intro. Who knew Holly from Maidstone's fees were so high, they had to make budget cuts on the jingles.

They are just doing that for old-er songs. For example, if an oldish song came up, they'd just find any suitable 1tro and put it on the beginning instead of just using the generic one they used to use. Pretty much all new songs' intros are still being made by Music 4

I wondered how these came about, I just thought they had a machine that adapted the radio 1 "logo" to the beginning of the song. I really like the Estelle one, it flows into the song nicely where some of them are a bit rough.

The BBC are clever, but not that clever :)

Sure they'll try it one day soon though!

it could easily be set up. They'd just need a database logging all the 1tros and how they start and then all the songs and how they start.

For example, a 1tro could be tagged as "slow piano" and then that would go with a "slow piano" song, such as The Pussycat Dolls - I Hate This part.

Simple
