I assume he’d like to do the Christmas chart presented it a few times but i know Scott as a pop music fan loves the prestige of presenting something as iconic. Agree about your point covering they likely go for regular presenters or potentially few celebs chucked in that seems possible but maybe there would be on show and that it. Can’t in reality seeing him doing that much Christmas radio as used to. Think it would be good to have most presenters having Christmas break so refreshed for the January where think then maybe programming another fresher feel
I hope he doesn't do much on R2, but instead has a proper holiday before back on R1 in January. I think actually he's done enough cover on R2 (with all the double-shifts) not to have anything to prove over the holidays. Those should be covered by the longterm cover folk like Gary Davies IMO, i.e. those who are unlikely to ever move to a proper daytime R2 show.
Agree with your point about Scott and his family - it should be up to him really, as I assume it's been in recent years, if he wants Xmas Breakfast then he should be allowed it but certainly won't be pushed to do so. Hope he does the Xmas chart this year though (on Xmas Eve)
I do miss them on breakfast, but that ship has sailed sadly. If Scott is going to be on Christmas Eve, it will be the Christmas Official Chart which falls that day. I hope he still does Christmas Day breakfast even with it falling on a Saturday.
Will be interesting to how much live programming there is on Christmas Day this year. Last year there was the BFBS takeover which was a really good idea, would be good if that came back.
