Well not sure if this is really worthy of a new topic but on the Music 4 website today they annouched that they are creating a new package for newsbeat. I wonder if it will be just a simple reworking or a total new sound...i hope so!

Fresh for 2009!

The team at Music 4 and Music 4 Studios have been working hard throughout December on fresh new imaging for BBC Radio 1... A number of new jingles and themes have been produced for The Chris Moyles Show and Newsbeat.

The hugely popular Chris Moyles Show moves into it's 5th year in January 2009 and will burst back on the air with new jingles, themes and contest beds for the show.

Radio 1 Newsbeat will be freshened up with a remixed theme for 2009.

Audio highlights of all of the new work will appear on music4.com early in 2009.

The current Duu du du du's for Newsbeat are nowhere near as good as the previous ones. As for Moyles his jingles seem to get better every time so they should be good.

Oh yeah, I think I remember that, was that when it was pretty much exactly the same as the BBC News jingles?

no, those were the ones around 2003. i meant these ones:-

although it's much better today than the jingles with that annoying woman on everything from 3 years back.

we are all so sad.

on the grid.

I like the bed, it's got a nice rocky feel. There's a distinct lack of the dum dee dum dumm logo which I thought would be expected. There's no real ramp on the introduction to the first ident like there used to be which I think might make it a bit more difficult for Scott, Chris and Greg to hit it as they like to do. I also agree the top ident sounds rushed and the male voice sounds a bit high doesn't it?

Even after all that, I still quite like it.

When they launched the new female voiceover (Holly From MStone) they changed the newsbeat jingle but then changed it again a few days after and changed the effects on her voice. I think they may do it again this time round.....

I'll add up a recording at 12.30pm if I remember! Not heard them yet...

Edit: It reminds me somewhat of commercial radio's news. It's certainly only a remix of the old package but it's more upbeat and has the Music4 magic about it.

It's a bit loud and in your face for the presenter to talk over but I could soon get used to it.

I'm downloading the new theme now, I'm actually quite excited to hear it!

I actually quite like it! It's quite fast though innit?! I don't like the female voiceover's echo of 'Radio 1' but it's quite good :) It does sound like they've kept most of the old voiceovers, and sounds like a remix of the old package but it's good :)
