  1. Both Timsk and I were terribly sad to hear that John had died this morning. He was one of the UMers who actually helped to bring us 2 together; he was so friendly, amusing and welcoming.

    He was a constantly happy presence on my Twitter timeline, even when nattering about football. I spoke to him about epilepsy a lot in the last year, as he did suffer from it, and I've had 2 seizures. He was so kind and helpful.

    We've lost a good friend, a nurse and his poor family have lost a loving father. My thoughts are with them. RIP John.

  2. Hello.

    Just wanted to make a brief appearance on here to confess that the boyf (Timsk) and I haven't listened to Scott for rather a long time. My apologies, but his time schedule changes didn't work for us. We have however thoroughly enjoyed tuning in to him again a bit in the morning this week and look forward to next week too. He beats Melvyn Bragg on Radio 4 hands down.

  3. This is very sad news. I shall listen to as much of the show as I can today.

    Beccy will really be missed. She was a lovely bubbly presence and I wish her all the best for the future.

    Thank you Jono for sending her a gorgeous bunch of flowers on behalf on UM. She said thanks on Twitter this morning. 'Thank you so much @unofficialmills. Made my day to come in and see these! X pic.twitter.com/rACo5Ozw '

  4. Many thanks for the thread Viv, and to all of you well wishers, It's very much appreciated. I miss you lot.:)

    If you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed that the last few weeks have been a bit of a rollercoaster. My ex husband comitted suicide 3 weeks ago, 2 days later I had an interview for a new job, tried not to cry too much beforehand, it makes my eyes puffy, got 2nd interview and got a new job.

    I'm now teaching English online to students from Russia, the Ukraine, Kazakstan (no Borat jokes) etc. I'm absolutely adoring the lessons, I have fantastic students, but the techy/admin stuff is dreadful.

    So yeah, this is a happy Nati at 41. xx

  5. Have listened to 1 whole show, and 2 halves. Whilst I'm aware that Radio 1 wish to appeal to youngsters, I wasn't aware it was to those that still attend primary school.

    I don't dislike Grimey [sic], he's ok in small doses, but I'm at a loss as to how he can be expected to carry off 3 and a half hours a day, at breakfast after the reign of Moyles.

    His show, and his onair attitude is juvenile. I've noticed his sad attempts at cheap publicity on Twitter (via others, don't follow him), ie. gatecrashing Johnathan Ross's 'top party in town' Halloween event and banning Robbie Williams music from his show. This is just the sort of attention grabbing behaviour that Moyles used to ridicule.

    My mornings are a mixture of Radio 4 and Radio 6 Music now, as befits my age. I know my place, and I'm much happier elsewhere.

  6. I know this is a Scott Mills forum, but there's a thread here for this, so:

    I have to admit I almost got a little tearful this morning listening to what I heard of Moyles, the team and guests. Only 3 days left. I shall definitely have a good old cry on Friday. It truly is the end of an era.

    I'll really miss Chris and co.

  7. I feel I'm getting to old for Radio 1 this song is shit- Centipede by Knife Party, Scott seemed to like it though.

    Same here. What an appalling din. There is very little dub step I do like. I don't mind Flux Pavilion, but apart from them - not keen. Perhaps Scott's trying to be 'young and trendy' with his endorsement of this 'song'?

    Chris's film reviews were very amusing today. Especially his sort of non review on Broke Back Mountain.

  8. I'd agree with you that with the advent of Twitter, forums may seem to have become a little less relevant. I'd imagine it's much easier for programme researchers to browse tweets as opposed to forums. Bit sad.

    I think I've been on Twitter for over 5 years. Goodness how different it is now. It was a ghost town when I first joined.

    But things may change. We'll see.

    PS. Less bickering is always for the good. It's unproductive.
