  1. I hope we see him get some prime time cover work for Radio 2 then, as they seem to have sidelined him from breakfast cover over Matt and Mollie, as you said.
  2. I agree. I could see him doing drive or breakfast on radio 2 some point down the line
  3. Radio 2 also play current chart music, but yeah it’s be a massive transition as well, and I’m sure radio 2 could be Scott’s chance to eventually have a good run on breakfast or drive again.
  4. I’m sure when his time on radio 1 wraps up he’ll have a massively successful career on radio 2, fingers crossed.
  5. I agree, they must have ambitions to move to daytime though, otherwise why would they have taken a late night show after doing the number 1 commercial breakfast show.
  6. I always imagine a lot of people there resent him for some reason.
  7. It’s a massive sweeping generalisation isn’t it — from the way I look at it this could be terrible or good, it’s just an odd change, never would have predicted it.
  8. I don't have a problem with the formulaic format, although it does make dull listening. But the presentation and content from those two is dire compared to other shows, it's not just a lack of content, that could sound slick, it's how weak on the desk and not slick both of them are.
  9. sorry mate don't worry about it. it was funny i just thought you meant it literally haha.
  10. i don't know what made you think to post this but it's just not true and shows a complete lack of understanding, and its just vicious.. radio 2 is good at being radio 2. yes it has some people on it who aren't great as traditional radio DJs (rylan), but they don't want that. if anything it's getting more modern and less bogged down in the past, while still appealing to a wide older age range. scott will do very well there. people need to stop attacking stuff just because personally it isn't for them. by all means criticise anything you want, but constructively, don't attack stuff for the sake of it. sorry if i sound a bit annoyed, i'm not, it just triggered me a bit.
  11. Annie Mac 7-9pm weekdays for new music. People always make digs on here about Capital and the like. Maybe some don't like the music (a lot of the target demo do), maybe you don't like the high rotation (it works for their aim), maybe you don't like the quick links or style (up to you), but none of that means it isn't a very high quality product, incredibly slick, and employs very very talented people, talented in a fast paced, less obvious way than the likes of Radio 1 DJs. It's not massively my cup of tea, but it's very good at what it does.
  12. they play hip hop because it's in the charts and it's popular. 1Xtra is for "The remit of 1Xtra is to play the best in contemporary black music with a strong emphasis on live music and supporting new UK artists. The schedule should also offer a relevant news service, regular discussion programmes and specially commissioned documentaries relevant to the young target audience (15-24 year olds), particularly - although not exclusively - those from ethnic minorities." not exclusively hip hop, but it does play it a lot because that fits it's remit. It currently fits Radio 1's remit to do so because it's targeting 16-24s, and during the day plays new music and stuff in the charts, all designed to appeal to that demographic. Radio 1 is the mainstream youth station, and currently, hip hop, grime and rap are very on target, and enjoyed by much of the demo, so they play it. They'd be mad to not play it a lot, like when Radio 1 ignored a load of dance trends in the 80s.
