Great for Taylor, Dua and Billie. Don't care about the other song.

Nick Grimshaw taking a break from the station for a few weeks, Jordan North stands in for him. Possibly an audition for his eventual replacement.

Evening Schedule changes at Radio 1

BBC Radio 1 boss Aled Haydn Jones talks schedule changes and backing new artists - https://www.musicweek.com/media/read/bbc-ra...-artists/080649

QUOTE
BBC Radio 1 boss Aled Haydn Jones has made his first big move since his promotion earlier this summer.

The former head of programmes was upped to head of station, a role he had been overseeing following the exit of controller Ben Cooper last year. Cooper also has a big new job, which was announced today.

As exclusively revealed in the latest issue of Music Week, Haydn Jones has moved the specialist shows forward an hour in the schedule.

Haydn Jones, a 21-year veteran of Radio 1, said that new music was getting a renewed focus. It will ensure that rising UK artists are as central to Radio 1’s ambitions as the station’s eye-catching creative projects, such as Hide & Seek with Greg James and Nick Grimshaw and the Up Yours Corona campaign.

“At Radio 1, we've got really good at connecting shows, having a Radio 1 family and having a lot of successes with our projects,” said Haydn Jones. “This [schedule change]is about ensuring music gets as loud a voice from Radio 1 as some of the other stuff that we've done over the last couple of years.

“So I've been meeting with all the labels for the last couple of weeks and talking about how we're going to show more commitment and be more supportive of new music and new artists, especially British music and artists. The conversations are going really well.”

Radio 1’s Future Sounds With Annie Mac will now be in a new 6-8pm slot on Monday to Thursday. Mac’s Hottest Record In The World feature, which currently airs at 7.30pm, will launch the show at 6pm.

In his first interview since being appointed by BBC pop controller Lorna Clarke as station head, Haydn Jones has spoken about his vision for the youth network.

“We're most excited about the fact that we're going to bring our specialist output forward,” he said. “Bringing Annie Mac to the 6-8pm slot is huge, actually. [A specialist show at that time] hasn’t happened in decades at Radio 1. We can then also move the Hottest Record feature and put it at the top of the show, taking it to a whole new bigger audience.”

As part of the changes, Jack Saunders will host a new show on Monday to Wednesday. Radio 1’s Future Artists With Jack Saunders will air from 10pm to midnight.

“We're working on other initiatives around that new show,” said Haydn Jones. “There will be a package of assets that you'll get by being on that show that really bring the weight of Radio 1 behind artists, who, ultimately, we hope will end up on Annie Mac’s show and then the playlist.”

Jack Saunders’ Indie Show will remain on Thursday night at 10pm.

On Friday nights, Radio 1’s Dance Party with Annie Mac will also move forward an hour into a 6–8pm slot. It will be followed by Danny Howard (8–10pm) and Pete Tong (10pm – midnight).

The new schedule launches on September 1.

BBC Radio 1 had 8.915 million weekly listeners in the Q1 RAJAR figures. The station has built its online profile, with an average of two million views a day for its content on YouTube/Vevo and a combined social media following of 7.4m.


Mon - Thurs
6pm:- Annie Mac with Radio 1's Future Sounds
8pm:- Rickie, Melvin & Charlie
10pm:- Jack Saunders with Radio 1's Future Artists (except Thursday where it will be the Indie Show)

Friday
6pm:- Annie Mac's Dance Party
8pm:- Danny Howard
10pm: - Pete Tong

There's been no announcement as yet of when daytimes will go back to normal indeed if they do.

Sounds like the three presenter daytime schedule is staying then hmmm

I now understand why Grimmy and Annie are both off for a ‘few weeks’ too, obviously the intention is to relaunch both shows.

I hope the emphasis on new music is seen in the daytime too. It’s been nice to see some artists that haven’t made much impact on the charts still be supported and it’d be good for that to be extended.

This just feels all over the place and I'm not sure if I like it. There seems to be no consistency anymore lol

It means that for the first time the main evening edition of Newsbeat will bridge the gap between the daytime and specialist shows.

I guess 'Future Artists' will be very similar but with new artists (I knew it was coming with Jack filling in for Annie Mac), however it's a shame the Indie Show will be once a week.

I'm really happy about this change actually and the fact he wants to renew the focus on new music is a good thing. A bit like the arguement in the playlist topic the other week radio 1 needs to standout from the commercial stations not be a clone of them.

Someone I know involved in the indie scene has been told that the plan is for new bands is to premiere their new singles on Jack Saunders, and then bring them to Annie Mac's show if they're well received - sounds good!
