    welovemoyles reacted to Ant L in Luke Frank sitting in for Alice on Sunday   
    He does sound like he'd maybe fit better on Capital or Heart rather than Radio 1, but then it was his first show and I guess it takes a bit of time to adapt style. Surprised he was given such a prominent slot for his first appearance but hey ho - he does sound very slick and there's definitely potential there.
    Saying that it's good to hear some new voices on Radio 1 daytime and not just someone that's transitioned over from 1Xtra.

    God he has an irritating voice. Sounds so forced and unnatural. Reminds me of when Chris Moyles does his wacky deejay impression.

    welovemoyles reacted to OohErr in Radio 1 Snap Election   
    Not completely related to this thread, but the sexism of Global, especially on Capital really pisses me off. Only 1 solo female DJ on the whole network schedule (Aimee Vivian), the woman always being secondary to the bloke in both presentation and billing on co-host shows (especially on Heart but it happens on Capital as well). But the formal name of the new breakfast show, to be hosted by Roman Kemp and Vick Hope is... Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp. Not even a mention of her in the shows formal name, that goes on the website, the app, and all the marketing. Really irritates me. Can't imagine how pissed off she must be about it.
    In terms of the Radio 1 snap election, I'd vote for Scott and Chris on breakfast any day of the week.

    It's actually quite an alright idea.
    So on the show today, the idea was raised by Chris to have a snap election at Radio 1 to let the listeners decide where each presenter should go on the radio schedule, (following the stuff that happened this morning).
    It's actually quite an intriguing point, and certainly something that could be discussed on these forums, because we've always chatted about who we personally want where in the schedule or who the big bosses at the BBC would like, but what do we think as a listener and nothing else?
    Aside from thinking whether Jordan North deserves to be higher up the schedule (which he does) and thinking that Clara's technical side of things isn't as good as Alice's, or whatever, what do we think the Radio 1 listeners would choose?

    Easter weekend was dull across most station's. In fact Sunday I did not have the Radio on at all. My wife thought that was very odd for me.

    Just done a bit of research on this new name. It appears R1 bosses have selected someone with a radio background for a Change. It's refreshing hopefully he won't let us down. Come on Lukey boy be good for us all.

    Moyles ripped all of Red Nose day apart this morning. Including Bingo. Quite rightly so. The comedy throughout the evening was a mess.

    So Greg is back tomorrow but In 7 shows off. He's had 3 different covers. Is it just Dev wasn't available or are they starting to think about a new host for this slot?

    One thing that I found striking at Big Weekend last year was the queues of people who were talking about their favourite DJs. It was Scott's name that came up various times. I mean it's hard to say how much these people listen to Radio 1,  but I think he remains the most recognisable name with young audiences. Now you could argue that's the strength of Scott's work, you could also argue Radio 1 has more to do to connect its audiences with the newer DJs.

    One of my favourite things about this is that on Heart's afternoon show in 1996, Chris Smith was reading the news for Scott. And 21 years later, on Radio 1's afternoon show, Chris Smith is reading the news for Scott.

    When Chris Tarrant gives you a cheque then takes it back saying But we don't wanna give you that. And rips it up in front of you.

    Really enjoyed Sounds of the 80s with Mills and Coxy. I think he could become Sara's cover when she's off. He said Radio 1 instead of 2 twice in a 4 hour show. Not bad going. Sara also joked the door was still open for her to join R2 when Jo Whiley jumped across. Nice to see they left it open for you also Scott. In which Mills replied with only temporary though LOL

    It wouldn't be the first time the Radio 1 bosses have done such a thing with their best presenter(s). Losing Scott would be a huge loss though, simply down to the fact that he's head & shoulders above anyone else there imo.
    As regards with Scott moving to Radio 2 in the near future, it can happen and I think will work even if he has to adapt a little. But by the time/if he goes R2, it'll have a different sound to now. I think pre 1980 music will feature a lot less, if at all during daytime hours.
    Look at it this way, Radio 2 is a changing station even more so than Radio 1. How many presenters during Scott's Radio 1 years (or slightly before) work on Radio 2 now?
    Chris Evans, Simon Mayo, Sara Cox, Dave Pearce, Mark Radcliffe, Jo Whiley etc. Plus one off shows.
     
    Not only that but I think some long standing presenters will be moving on from there over the next 5 years to make room. Radio 2 took a big controversial decision with cutting "Sounds of the 60's", wrong or right they are moving to a different age themselves. They are aiming to pull in people like me, from their late 20's who've long outgrown Radio 1 to people approaching 50 now.
    I gotta admit they are winning me over as well.

    He would be perfect for R2 and it would be a huge achievement for him to be able to stay at the BBC. Who knows in many years to come it might be Scott Mills in the afternoon on BBC Radio 2?

    Just been reading that Scott will present a one off show on Radio 2 tomorrow as part of Sara Cox's 24 Danceathon. Should be a good show.
    Anyone else think this could be trial to see if he could fit Radio 2 as permant fixture in the future?

    You forget, though, that Scott has changed his act and modernised to stay on R1 into his 40s. Also, his "kind of music" probably isn't the R1 playlist- I'd say he has a very broad taste in music and would adapt to the R2 playlist. And he obviously wouldn't be bringing Innuendo Bingo or Bangers across to R2- he'd be on a different station doing a different show and would come up with new features and games to suit the R2 audience.
