I can't remember specifically, because I couldn't always listen to the R1 breakfast show.

Though I suspect that Simon Mayo was probably favourable to Blur in that period, and they may have benefitted from airplay on his prime-time show.

Mayo seems to be a big Blur supporter. He also presented the 1 FM Roadhow in 1993/94 where Blur performed.

Also for 1 FM, does anybody know where or when this photo was taken? Looks like the 1 FM studio and maybe 1995?

Is the Popscene jingle they did for Mayo in there somewhere...I remember it went:

"Hey Hey it's 1Fm, Mayos alrigggght!" to the Popscene music, can remember listening to Radio 1 all the time back then in my first job. Great times on the radio, the start of Britpop right there.

Moritz - it looks like 1995-ish.

Sledge Hammer - I didn't know there had been a 'Popscene' jingle - would be great to hear it :mrgreen:

The irony is that Radio One were keen to play the 'Popscene' jingle, but perhaps not the song itself....?

I don't remember the single getting much airplay at all.

No I didn't discover Popscene until it appeared on the Starshaped Video late 1993, and was blown away by the song and the video, always had Radio 1 and never heard it...

I doubt if it got much beyond Mark Goodier's 'Evening Session', and the obligatory play on the Sunday chart show.
