BuzzJack Music Forum _ UK Charts _ Radio 1 Christmas and New Year schedules

Posted by: Robbie Nov 25 2019, 10:37 AM

Yes, it's that time of year again... Radio 1 may at some point this week be announcng their scehdules for Christmas and the New Year. At the moment the published schedules for Radio 1 go up to Friday 20 December - there's a 4 hour Decade Of Dance special hosted by Pete Tong and Annie Mac following the Christmas top 40 and Scott Mills' Party Anthems - but there is a BBC press release due this week with the festive line-up for all its TV and radio stations.

I'm assuming that there will be no full top 40 countdown on Friday 27 December. Perhaps just a quick rundown of the new top 40 and then playing the number 1. I wonder if we'll get two chart specials this year? A Top 40 of 2019 and a top 100 of the decade? However the 2019 chart year should end on Thursday 2 January 2020 which would mean that any end of year / decade chart that Radio 1 broadcasts would be missing a week's worth of sales. Possibly the OCC may decide to make Thursday 26 December the cut-off point for the 2019 chart year but that would mean 5 days worth of sales in 2019 would fall into the 2020 chart year.

I'm very much hoping we get a Top 100 of the Decade on New Year's Day (or even NYE), and that it doesn't replace Chart of the Year on the Friday.

Decade of Dance special sounds great too.

It would make more sense to have a Top 100 of the Decade on NYE or NYD. I'm trying to think what happened back in 2009. I'm sure there was a decade end top 100 countdown but I can't remember when it was on. Was that NYE?

They did a chart of the decade for 3 hours (1300-1600) on 29th, 30th and 31st December 2009: http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressreleases/stories/2009/12_december/14/radio1.shtml

The press pack has been released.
There isn’t much information on there about any shows apart from that fact that Scott Mills is doing Christmas Day breakfast (7-10) and Jordan North (4-7) and then student radio presenters are taking over radio 1 from Boxing Day until New Years Eve. Scott Mills is also presenting the Christmas number one on the 20th December.

Hate the Christmas chart being on a Friday as it's one I always go out of my way to listen to. Remember last Christmas I used the wifi in a Starbucks in town to listen and follow on BJ!

The BBC Sounds app exists if you can’t listen live and just avoid online spoilers of the announcement?

I wouldn't be able to do that lol. It was kinda fun being in a world of my own listening with all the Xmas shoppers oblivious walking by.

Nihal read my e-mail on air during the final 3-hour segment and I still have the recording of it <3

I think I want this decade's chart to get the same amount of attention but I'm wondering if it'll really feel representative, with sales-era hits mixed with streaming-era hits and whatnot. At least the top 10 won't be full of winner's singles, charity songs and Bob The Builder laugh.gif

Posted by: Steve201 Nov 26 2019, 07:59 AM

Yeh it might be more representative then!

I think it's likely that could just be a placeholder for the EOY chart.
having the week's official chart air on the 27th would be very odd considering most of it will be Christmas songs.
looks like from Boxing Day onwards they're doing a 20 years of R1 anthems special anyhow.

Posted by: Djcheekymagpie Nov 28 2019, 04:08 PM

Why would have chart update on 22nd still if not normal chart 27th

Because people would want to hear the Christmas songs on the 22nd laugh.gif

Posted by: dobbo Nov 28 2019, 07:03 PM

Yeah makes sense them not broadcasting the post-Xmas show as it's 95% Xmas songs but few people would want to hear them AFTER Xmas. But as I previously mentioned it's a big shame as so many lower-down classics never get their sole opportunity illustrious chart play!

Posted by: Steve201 Nov 28 2019, 10:40 PM

I hate the tradition were people stop playing Christmas songs during actual Christmas. Thankfully last year MTV channels played the official top 40 still through the full week.

Posted by: Djcheekymagpie Nov 28 2019, 11:18 PM

No mention chart of the year or decade only day not update New Year’s Eve

3rd January normal chart to

Posted by: Dan17F1 Nov 28 2019, 11:24 PM

It seems like instead of a chart of the decade, they are playing 3 hours of the biggest hits from 2000 to 2019 every day between Boxing Day and NYE

Posted by: Hadji Nov 28 2019, 11:37 PM

If each year has a 3 hour time slot, I’m guessing they’ll be playing the 40 biggest songs of each year?

Posted by: danG Nov 28 2019, 11:42 PM

From what it looks like it'll just be whatever Radio 1's favourite songs of that year are.
If there really is going to be no Chart of the Decade that is a huge disappointment.

If that’s the case, I hope we hear a lot of trance when they’re playing 2001 ie Fragma, Ian Van Dahl etc

I agree I was looking forward to it.

They are basically just doing radio 1s greatest hits then.

Do they not normally replay the Big Weekend in that week?

Yeah, it is weird people will listen to Christmas songs in November but consider Christmas over the minute they've opened their presents...

Posted by: jimwatts Nov 30 2019, 03:44 PM

Just 2 hours for the EOY chart and weekly chart (probably just a Top 10 rundown) on 27 Dec then?

Posted by: Riser Dec 1 2019, 01:57 AM

That's disappointing! I wouldn't mind hearing some semi-forgotten gems during Radio 1 Anthems though, 3 hours per year gives them enough time to play more than just the obvious hits...

Any chance the OCC will give the end-of-decade chart some fanfare on its own, without Radio 1?

Hope so. If they do I'll do a Mixcloud show of the top 100.

Posted by: lewis🎄green Dec 18 2019, 10:34 PM

Schedule has been updated to now include the new/student/local DJs that are covering most of the shows between Boxing Day and New Year. The Radio 1 Anthems shows will also be presented by new and upcoming presenters.

Poor Katie Thistleton stuck doing 2 shows on New Year’s Day laugh.gif I suspect that will change at some point

1Xtra’s takeover on the 28th also includes new presenters too.

Does anyone know if it's been confirmed whether the indie shows are taking over daytime shows in the first week of the year for the Sound Of countdown?

They haven't done so for a few years, you clearly haven't been listening.

Posted by: ChristmaSteve201 Dec 19 2019, 12:00 AM

I try to listen as much as possible.
