  1. He has actually covered every daytime show now hasn't he which is something older hands like Dev, Greg, Scott etc haven't done Grimmy covered for Fearne, Scott on drive and afternoons and Greg - (that was funny Grimmy covering for Scott who was covering for Moyles when Moyles was on holiday during his notice being replaced with Grimmy) Has Scott ever covered a show out of daytime times apart from special events?
  2. Thanks for the insight So if it is faded up for the 1245 bulliten some kind of handover must take place between Clara (82D) to Scott (82A) And - while were on it why is 82A always used by Greg, Scott and Annie? and 82D by the others? Is it true that 82A was designed to be bigger to accommodate the Chris Moyles show (because it was designed and being built before he announced he was leaving) and all its interactive features streaming and all? hence why the breakfast show latterly came from there ? I know Scott does use a different studio on a Friday for the chart I got this answered on the Chris Stark podcast but they didn't explain why They also explained that they didn't use 82A when there was a live lounge on, that the studios reversed when there was one They seem to reverse at weekends too?
  3. I assume you just enter the studio you want to take control then? when does this happen? so when does Clara hand over control to Scott etc?
  4. That must have been in the hide and seek shows?
  5. Ok Geeks I am looking to know how it works with Newsbeat between the DJs and studios So I am assuming (maybe wrongly) on the breakfast show like Tina used to be Rosin is in with Greg and reads the news opposite therefore all Greg does is plays the news in fades her mic up and (iv'e seen this in pics) she has a small desk at the co hosts station and controls the beds and all there and at the end plays the extro and play on the song that is after? or does the DJ do that bit? For other shows (I also think sometimes Rosin is in the separate news studio, specially for the 930/1030/1130 editions) does the DJ play the news in and hands control over to the news studio during or during the last song and plays the news in? I assume the DJ plays the news in and hands control of it over during that jingle while they are introducing it and newsbeat studio is faded up as an input then they fade down the DJ and on air studio and the newsbeat one becomes the on air for that two minutes then the new caster faded up the on air studio towards the end as they play the news out? and the DJ takes control and hits play on the system to play the next song - this must be true because the DJ sometimes speaks to the newscaster at the end like Greg not so much on Clara and Scott show but Grimmy defo has and Greg sure does (I know Chris Smith used to be in with Greg on drive a lot and not in the separate studio unless it was the 15 min programme) And for the 15 minute programme I assume the same happens DJ plays news in hands control over during to the news studio who then takes full on air control and fades the 82A/D etc down and then the on air DJ doesn't get involved again until the end so I assume as soon as shes handed control over Clara is finished at like 1247 and is out and Scott has to listen to it about 1258 for timing and to be ready to take control at 1300 to hit play on the first song I assume Grimmy does the same kind of thing at 1745 and listens in again at about 1758 to take back over so has time for a fag break get a drink? Is it an offer/accept type system?
  6. He sounds so much fuller of life than Grimmy - the man just needs to go IMO put Scott back on drive for a few years after all he is already back on it Friday now just give him the other 4 to make it consistent and then give Jordan or D&A 1-4
  7. I wonder if it is some kind of thing like hunted on TV ? the DJs all get set loose and someone (Greg and Grimmy) with the help of the listeners has to find them - and WHY isn't Scott involved ????
  8. Got to be another Hide and Seek type thing unless it's a marathon show
  9. What is really bizarre is that Scott is not being used to cover any other slots - him and Clara seem to be the only consistency Ref Charlie doing Party Anthems makes sense from Ibiza so Scott gets an early day out of it (walk out at 1746) or hes on a flight straight to Ibiza to join the rest of them which is what he did last year
  10. Maybe Lorna Clark is influencing stuff already? or Aled is shaking things up?
  11. I think they are trying out different presenters just to mix it up a bit. It's clear they are getting ready for Scott to leave as he is not being used anymore and him and Clara would be the consistency for the week. Also its Summer Holidays so it's who is available maybe. Maybe it became a bit stale as Scott on breakfast and Jordan on drive as cover so they are letting other less prominent presenters have a go at the prime slots.
  12. I cannot imagine why Scott is not dep anymore because he has always been, unless it's waiting an impending move to R2 so they had to get new deps for breakfast
  13. I can see Charlie as a future replacement for Jam on Dance Anthems actually the "club charlie" feature is great on Thursday at 2230 She will be more on target and probably do some live mixing too
  14. She was involved in Sara Cox getting breakfast in the day Not ure what will happen to Ben Cooper, maybe he will be her deputy
  15. From radio today https://radiotoday.co.uk/2019/07/lorna-clarke-named-as-controller-of-pop-at-the-bbc/ Ben copper seems to be dropped from the top job - wonder what will happen under this lady and to him, considering he was the person who got rid of Moyles yet one of his good friends he has kept constants like Scott and Annie and Mistajam Interesting development
  16. I would put the regular weekday presenters back to be honest - rather Greg any day than M&M and rather Clara than Maya although that would leave us in a scenario where Grimmy got the chart and Party Anthems unless they left 1-4 and 4-7 same as now and gave Grimmy and Chris Stark Fridays off Also because of the weekend on Friday thing Adele looses half hour on an already "shorter" show than the other weekday presenters - I don't understand why Friday breakfast has to start at 6 because essentially it's the same slot as Greg so why can't it start at 0633 after Newsbeat like Greg does weird Also sounds silly when on Thursday M&M cover with Gregs jingles and beds and all then Friday it's totally different should still be Scott covering for Greg IMO See Dev and Alice are covering for Scott the week he is off - wonder if Stark will be with them that will be an interesting dynamic with three of them - I doubt Chris has more holiday as he only just had a week off where Scott was solo
  17. Yeah I noticed classics on the 1800-1900 hour for Scott a bit, so could be going back to that floorfillers format of yesteryear
  18. Looks like Scott is off 15-18 July and D&A are sitting in Although Scott is show on Friday Wonder if Chris is with D&A for the week as he had his hols last week or because Scott is off Chris gets the week off
  19. Seems that way, also tomorrow at 7 Scott has "party anthems" which to me sounds more commercial bangers than the current dance format, maybe so he can throw some older classics in to compete with Heart Dance? Would be interesed to see if he has had new jingles and sweepers done for this - feels like it could be more like his old "floorfillers" he used to do on Fridays after newsbeat being revived Remember this is the first personalisation of the Friday driver show for him since he took over, because it has stayed the same format as Greg had since 2015 when he took the chart over - of course 1600-1745 has to be the chart then 1800-1900 is "Scott" for an hour Would be interested to see if this persoinallisation is going towards Scott and Chris back on drive? and Grimmy out maybe? dreams can come true
  20. seems like a good sucessful community station too - very involved in the community they have a sonifex S2 desk same one as I use at Uckfield FM
  21. It seems to me that they are using the weekend equivelent to cover weekday shows now so breakfast covers breakfast and all Wonder who will be cover for Matt and Mollie? if they had same holiday used to be Yasser for Dev Also anyone notice Maya has anthems now 10-11? from Friday its being trailed so wonder if Greatest hits is going to be permenent 10-11 weekdays and Maya is doing anthems
  22. I think it deserves a slot, but not daily As far as renaming Party Anthems - I dont get that, Scott started Friday saying "the best Party anthems"
  23. I would say probably correct, that Scott Mills was definately offered the gig and turned it down - bit of a kick to Jamie Theaktson to know he was second fiddle after being in the slot for some years Wonder what made Scott turn it down - was it the fact he would have been working with Amanda Holden lol As for Greg - I would say he will go for Moyles' record and try to do 9/10 years being the radio nerd he is, but it depends how long you can hack early mornings although he has Chris Evans' wish of being 4 days only I can see Scott on afternoons for some time yet too as him Adele and Clara are the only constant on daytime currently after recent changes to both weekday and weekend schedules but maybe start to cover shows on Radio 2 like SWITA and Ken Bruce? Also of note Sara Cox has had no real "leave" since being on drive, wonder if there is potential for Scott to cover this slot? It will be interesting to see what happens to the three from Kiss - maybe they have potential to replace Grimmy on drive one day ? and give Dev and Alice the night show weekdays where they can be smutty and allow Jordan to have weekend afternoons and be the cover for weekday shows as well - Dev definately deserves a slot on daytime even if it is the 9pm one nightly
  24. Definitely a demotion specially as Scott is chart host too Dev deserves a weekday slot IMO
  25. Actually I think your theory could be one that’s correct - after all Scott is already doing drive on a Friday so why not add the other four His Dance anthems has been renamed too to Party Anthems What I think will happen is there will be major changes when the new controller for Radio 1&2 is announced (has it been?) if this is Ben Cooper as predicted maybe he’ll make major changes But yes I 100% agree Scott’s show sounds fresher than ever and it’s also been really good to hear him solo as well
