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/pressrele...14/radio1.shtml

The press pack has been released.
There isnít 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 canít listen live and just avoid online spoilers of the announcement?

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

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.

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!

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.

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

If each year has a 3 hour time slot, Iím guessing theyíll be playing the 40 biggest songs of each year?

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.
