Scott launches Christmas on Radio 1

Scott launches Christmas on Radio 1

It’s tradition for Scott to play the first Christmas song of the year around about now on Radio 1, but this year’s listener reaction seemed significantly more negative.

Perhaps it was the heatwave we’ve had this September, but playing Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You didn’t have the desired effect.

X Factor might be back on our screens, the Christmas shopping might have started, the dark nights might have arrived, and it might be less than 100 days away. But listeners were not ready for the festive cheer on a Friday afternoon.

#MillsChristmas was soon trending on Radio 1 with people threatening to switch off. Some because they didn’t want to hear the Christmas music, others because they simple LOVE the festive period, and wanted to hear more.
