I absolutely agree about the Dance anthems thing - when did Scott cover it on a Friday? 

 

Twice- on 4th December 2015 and New Year’s Day 2016. Interestingly he also covered it on a Saturday once too sitting in for Danny. Plus, don’t forget, he used to do “Ready For The Weekend” from 6-7pm on Fridays prior to being kicked off drivetime which was pretty similar to the current format of Friday’s Dance Anthems.

Anyone else upset that now we only get three scott mill's dailies a week? :cry:

Three? Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, no? But yeah, I'll miss having a content show on a Friday although maybe it means Monday-Thursdays shows will be even better. Plus, tbh I found my enjoyment of Friday's podcasts has been ruined by Maya Jama, who (I may have mentioned once or twice) really irritates me.

Or, if you've been listening for a really long time, Scott Mills's Friday Floor Fillers (whooooooo?). Straight after The Wonder Years. OMG!!! Literally just had a thought whilst writing this - do you think this means the return of... 

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITS OOOOOOOOOOOOONNNLLLLYYYYYY BLEEEEEEEEEYYYY FRIIIIIIIDAAAAAAAAAAY!

I must have missed the part where you revealed your dislike of Maya Jama. :P

Thinking about this more - this is totally the work of Aled isn't it

Hes a total radio geek like Scott and Greg

I wonder what the future holds for Scott now?

I can't see Chris joining him as the show isn't very zoo-format worthy but Mills has always been better than any chart host he's covered so should be good.

Although I remember this chart show with Scott, Laura and Chappers which worked as a one-off.

Wow, quite interesting hearing some pulling-relating chat - not sure they'd get away with it now!

But yeah, a normal Mills show with the chart included could work if it's back to 3 hours.

I was thinking that the other day, there's a lot of content from yesteryear Scott and others wouldn't be able to do these days!

Plus, Scott usually plays around 45 songs on his usual 1-4 show anyway? There would be no reason that he wouldn't be able to keep some show features.

Ben Cooper needs to have his head checked. These changes must be the most ridiculous I’ve ever heard of in nearly 7 years as a station listener.

Greg James was so happy to get the chart duties in 2015, but less than 3 years later it’s being swept from underneath his feet. Recently, his absence on Friday’s are mainly due to his commitment to Sounds Like Friday Night and his possible movement to TV work. Is there a back door open? I’m just speculating here, but on the other hand MistaJam must be pissed about not getting chart duties anymore! He tore it up and did well.

Scott taking over the chart is an OK move, and there’s no one else I’d like to see get the job. After all, he is experienced here.

The breakfast show change is madness. Whilst there has been speculation for years about Grimmy’s departure, it cannot be denied that Dev is possibly the worst breakfast presenter since Edith Bowman. More-so, he is the worst presenter the station has. He’s been there a long time, does old jokes and boring features, and is so not funny. How does Alice cope with him?! She must be tearing her fiery locks out! It’s time Dev was given the boot, and long overdue that she was given a permanent morning fixture at weekends or weekdays. Weekend mornings have become awful with Dev - I simply cannot listen.

Are listening figures for weekends low? Cooper’s way of fixing this is wrong. There is proof here that weekend schedules haven’t been as good as they should be, and it’s not getting better with this 3 day weekend. His medium mentions “Listen, Watch, Share” -clearly he’s forgotten that went out of the window 3 years ago.

New Music Fridays aren’t being pushed like they were before. And the Greatest Hits feature is fantastic. The ones at the moment should become a more permanent thing twice a day.

Ditching Dance Anthems on a Friday night is a brave move, but not the biggest loss.

God help this station at weekends. Cooper needs firing.

I think that's a great shame actually - whenever I listen to classic Mills clips on here I always think the show used to have an air of naughtiness that's somewhat lacking these days. Not always - every now and again they do or say something that's a bit suggestive or borderline rude, but not as often as I'd like. 

I understand why, but it's been ten years since Sachsgate - surely now it's time to start pushing the boundaries back a bit more again?

I agree that Dev is one of the most boring presenters and I think that's one of the reasons he's been paired up with Alice. Hopefully the show will start to improve as Alice is one of the best on the weekend line-up, will be interesting to see which way Friday breakfast listening figures change, probably giving Ben Cooper an idea of where Grimmy stands against them in terms of popularity to determine his future on breakfast.

Maybe Alice and Dev will become breakfast full time in the end with Grimmy relegated to weekend greatest hits ? 

Or will Greg finally get breakfast and Scott back on drive?
