Wasnt sure where to post this but the radio 1 playlist seems quite Ďfluidí these days. Sometimes songs spend 3 weeks on the C List while others spend 9 weeks there and songs are A Listed for a long time.

What do you like and not like about the playlist and the way it works? (WITHOUT MENTIONING AGES AND GENDERS OPINIONS 😁)

I think the range of songs that they add to the playlist is pretty spot on most of the time - sometimes it can seem that thereís a little too much rap but I donít think itís a major issue.

It would be nice to see more of a range of different songs reaching the A List which Iíd admit has improved recently with Architects, Noizu and Fred Again and The Blessed Madonna.

Also, it would be nice if there was a bit of a quicker turnover, I donít really need to be hearing Tiesto or Anne-Marie for 10 weeks, thatís Capitalís job. It would also be nice if there were some more oldies thrown in throughout the day. I could quite easily listen to radio1 all day if the A List tracks were only played twice a day. When itís 4 times, it gets a bit much sometimes.

Overall though, I reckon they do quite a good job with the playlist - much better than their commercial competition!

Yeh they are still the best, they wouldnít play A Listed songs 4 times a day if they had 20 songs on the list instead of 15 like the early century. They def play less different songs now imo. Even a glance at the playlist from day 2001 itís such an eye opener in terms of amount of songs and genres!

I feel like I heard Wellerman on R1 quite a lot outside of the chart considering it was a C-list staller! Seemed to be on at least every other time we were in the car, which wasn't very much cos lockdown #3.

Also, Radio 1 used to be 90% of my radio/podcast listening but now it might be around 50% because I've started following ex-R1 DJs elsewhere for the first time, so lots of Capital Dance, Heart (purely cos Dev) and Phil Taggart's new pod ChillDaBeats. Plus lots of Radio 2.

I must say, 6 Music Goes Pop on Thursday was brilliant. Lots of things Radio 1 love but R2 won't touch and vice versa. Basically a whole station of Drake meets Adam and the Ants. I loved it!

Omg at 'Photo ID' making the playlist! cheeseblock.png

Also pleased to see Fredo and Mimi added (and Lil Nas X but that was a given). Central Cee on the A-list surprises me...

Great tunes of the week! Thank you lewistgreen biggrin.gif

As a bonus, Jack Saunders' tune of the week (he's covering for Annie Mac) is Bree Runway's Hot Hot which is such a banger. Really hope it gets added to the main playlists soon!
