I figured that instead of passing comment in the chatbox all the time it would make sense to start a thread about the Scott Mills show for observations that don't warrant their own thread. Stuff you liked, stuff you didn't like, stuff you've noticed - anything goes really.

So I'll start by saying the same stuff I said in the chatbox about today's show.

Thought it was really good. Really funny chats and just particularly enjoyable. Also the podcast was a respectable 36 minutes - although that may be down to really long jingles between each segment and leaving long bits of the songs in. I like how Scott's involving the team more these days - it's definitely shifted to more of a zoo format in recent weeks, hasn't been like this since the Beccy and Chappers days.

Also, Brick By Boring Brick has been on Bangers at least twice before - I always notice because I hear Scott saying "Barry the Castle" in my head. That said, still a robbery.

If you thought yesterday's 36 minutes was respectable, you'll enjoy today's 43 minutes - very rare for the 1pm-4pm slot. I haven't listened to it yet, but I suspect that they've used really long jingles in the podcast like they did yesterday.

Interesting that on the show today, Scott and Chris were discussing what would happen if Scott was to resign or was sacked (this came off the back of a discussion point that mentioned a guy writing a 'Sorry for your loss' card to his bosses, announcing he quit). Scott said that when the time comes, he would personally like to make the decision himself as opposed to being forced out. He said that if he was forced out, he would exit in style with hidden secrets potentially being revealed.

As entertaining as that show would be, I hope I don't have to hear it for a very long time.

I was trying to read deeper into what Scott was saying but it was difficult - I *think* he was implying he's not ready to go just yet? Which is good news. But it's interesting that he said he's been thinking about how he'll leave for years - I remember him saying in 2012 that at the end of his next contract that would probably be it but it seems he's had a change of heart since then.

That's what I picked up from it too - he's not ready to go yet, but he'd like the choice to go at a time of his choosing as opposed to being forced out in a way that Chris Moyles was, for example.

I would like to see Scott stay at Radio 1 until at least the end of this decade, anyway. I have no idea when he actually celebrates his 20 year anniversary at the station though. I know it's definitely this year. Would it be around the same time as Aled, perhaps?

12th October according to Genome (Emma B - whooooo - was on from the 5th to the 9th, and before then Chris Moyles was on. http://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/schedules/radio1/england/1998-10-11
