  1. I preferred the theme they used in the 2010-2015 period sounded more news like Miss Dom reading the news on breakfast - although on X of course
  2. Has Dan P carter and Phil Taggart gone? Scotts WIKI says 1998 not a month though Charlie Sloth may move to R1? he appears on RONR sometimes and helped with big weekend and how about A Dot but she seems too specialist, I can see Clara going to Annie Macs slot one day making way for a new live lounge host - Adele or Alice Cant see Grimmy going anywhere at the moment, he seems to have settled from the days when he wouldn't appear for work and big nights out I think Greg is in the zone Scott was about 8 years ago, next logical choice for breakfast but the resident host in place not showing any sign of going and by the time they do too late Would they give Scott one last swansong as permanent Breakfast host if Grimmy was moved off do we think? maybe for a couple years? Here is a thought of what may happen in say 5 years; If Scott eventually gave his show up and started the transition to R2 (I think if Ken Bruce or Steve Wright were to semi retire to weekends or something the gap would appear then) assuming they would need a cover DJ if Sara Cox got a permanent show (assuming she would replace KB or SW) maybe Scott would do what she does, sounds of the 80s/90s and cover the main R2 shows (probably half a years work through the year) apart from Vine's show although he could make a blinding job of that as well as he does have a serious side, and also cover shows on R1 still being the primary breakfast cover for Grimy and maybe cover his "old" show and maybe some other bits and then fill a permanent slot on R2 (drive time or Breakfast or the big show) I am sure Cox did a few years covering shows on R1 and 2 ? If this were to happen would she still be the primary holiday cover for Chris Evans and Scott cover her show (as what happens now on R1 where Scott covers Grimmy and someone else covers Scott)
  3. Indeed very true. Think its pretty established. What he doesn't say of course, is that if a DJ chooses to leave, which could happen, if they feel they want to move on/better bigger job comes along (not saying we want this but always possible). I would love to see Mills at R1 for 20 years, specially in the lead entertainment show on the station - he never fails to impress with new content absolute star, IMO he and Chris should defo be on breakfast full time. On that note - I actually think Grimmy will WILL beat Moyles's record, he's over half way there now.
  4. So looks like this is a thing Mistajam is covering Breakfast So we know Scott is on his own hols, and Grimmy is off until Wednesday, do we know the possible reasons that Dev or Alice would not have been used? is Jam transitioning to R1 (I know he covered Annie, but is this part of finding a new cover presenter in readiness for Scott to leave) Is it just they cannot get any of the other R1 guys on Would have thought they would have used Dev after Scott then maybe looked at Greg moving slots and someone else covering drive Any thoughts
  5. Do you think he will shake things up How will this likely affect the Mills show
  6. I always thought Moyles and Mills were good mates
  7. I suspect Moyles would maybe take part as he is the longest breakfast presenter, although cant see him co presenting the breakfast show with the guy who replaced him, who is rapidly (for all the criticism he gets) catching up with the great saviour. Coxy, Wrighty, Mayo would defo get involved without a doubt as would Jo Whiley maybe.
  8. do we know where Gemma is going
  9. Maybe it will be on the website live to stream? or Iplayer will have a special R1 channel for the days?
  10. Chris has done this in the past done roving reports and on the TV wonder how much will be on the TV live
  11. I reckon Scott would have been pissed that Grimmy got the breakfast show in 2012
  12. I think he will last a few more years, but we may see things like him covering on R2 hopefully not too soon because I love his R1 show, although on R2 I reckon we would hear more from him, as in he would get to do more talking and entertaining
  13. Hey all Anyone know if the breakfast shows for the week between Moyles and Grimmy are anywhere, would love to hear how the transition was managed by Scott and team
  14. I wonder if they would do to Greg what they did to Scott a few years ago, when Scott goes move him on to the 1 to 4 again and put one of the guys like Alice or Matt on drive with Chris? I however love Alice and Chris on the 1-4 when she has covered Scott - provided Scott didn't take the big show at R2 I would continue to listen to R1 with those two. I would have to keep swapping my shifts for lates if Scott got a morning show on R2 - I also wonder if a commercial station will snap him up - Radio X could do the "go to work with Moyles and home with Mills" tag line from the early noughties R1 used to use
  15. Hey Know this has probably been asked before, can anyone help How do the Studio allocations work on R1 - Know they share with xtra and AN and the breakfast show comes out of 82A But, what happens, does Scott for instance always use the same Studio - have an idea they have to use the Live Lounge for Innuendo bingo because of the no water in studio rule, so would make sense he and Clara hot seat wap during news beat Does Scott use 82A for the breakfast show Hope someone can help us (several discussing on WhatsApp group)

  17. I assume last 2 weeks because Grimmys whole team were off team Mills was completely on the Breakfast show with different team doing the afternoon show with matt Sent from my SM-G925F using the Unofficialmills.co.uk mobile app
  18. When they have covered Scott at short notice I.e. the Mills team is there but Scott isn't odd days illness etc then Chris is there as rostered He was doing stuff with Scott as far back as 2010 time I think if you listen to shows I thought he was one of the producers of Scott's show anyway? I know TOWDS and Becky were Who are Scott's producers now we never hear them apart from Chris? We hear Grimmys and Greg's all the time Sent from my SM-G925F using the Unofficialmills.co.uk mobile app
  19. Yeah I've noticed he's abit more daring with his features and stuff he says but I think that's partly because he is the main entertainer of the station Will be a very sad day when he does leave I tell you bigger than moyles leaving for sure Remember he has been there almost as long as Moyles maybe by 2 years but still going Sent from my SM-G925F using the Unofficialmills.co.uk mobile app
  20. Maybe with the news that Capital is putting a 24yr old and a whole new crew on Breakfast, they will have to react, hopefully using Alice Levine to go up against him or maybe even Mills (here is hope - and there would be no competition)
  21. Nothing I am afraid, but I enjoyed bangers whilst at work in the morning, and in the afternoon while we tided the house ready to sell - Greg and Matt really ramped things up with the bangers, as opposed to the boring Amfo lady - she is very very cute, but her skill set is not a patch even on Grimmy but specially Scott Yes true giving Scott the recognition he deserves, as the "senior" DJ on the station in service and experience, although not "senior" in the ranks of show I keep wondering why all this Scott related stuff is happening, are they doing some build up to an announcement maybe when the 50th Birthday is going on about Scott leaving or am I reading too much into it I would have loved to see Scott break the Moyles 52hr record on the Lolothon, what a final stand that would have been I am really hoping that Scott will be one of the main presenters if not the lead presenter for the 50th celebrations later this year, being the most experienced and longest serving daytime DJ in situ, hopefully reuniting him with faces like Moyles, Cox, Ball, Dave Pearce etc etc Hopefully some interesting documentaries on the TV surrounding it to watch hopefully presented by Mills - remember Moyles did one and met all the previous breakfast DJs except the ginger one
  22. don't think this would happen, because Scott would have been placed on Breakfast after Moyles left if he was going to, Grimmy is safe until 2019 at least unfortunately more likely would be Alice Leviene or Adele Roberts I would say, but R1 looks pretty stable at the moment, with no shock "elections" or resignations likely, they have a pretty solid robust team, and any station - as demonstrated on R2, needs to keep continuity, so I think R1 will stay as it is for at least 2 to 4 years - remember the last massive shake up was 2012, when Moyles left and Mills and James were swapped three big changes in one year, that was too much IMO, I think a clue that something is happening is if someone like Alice starts covering Breakfast instead of Scott - which will be a sad day as he is a f***ing brilliant radio DJ in his own right - by far the BEST one R1 have
  23. Luke is with the same agency as Grimmy Intrestingly, Scott and Sara Cox are with the same agency - a different one to Luke and Grimmy and Greg James is with a totally different one, and Clara Amfo has her own site !
  24. Is this person on 1 extra? I would have thought someone from 1 extra would come over, like Yasser has and Nick Bright seems to be Adeles cover Would also love to see someone like Sara Cox or Zoe Ball do some cover on R1 weekends Also Greg James must have some hols coming up as mentioned Dev on his show today as "the cover" and he has his own drive jingles
