Who's Been Stealing Scott's Ideas?

Recommended Posts

Scott mentioned a couple of times last week that a DJ on another station has started borrowing Scott's Ideas, including a lengthy chat about it on Friday's Real or No Real.

I think it was Will Manning on Capital London. He's been using Korean Billy as well (as did Chris Moyles yesterday).

Any other suggestions as to who it could be?

I doubt it. Korean Billy was an internet thing so he's fair game for other presenters to use- he wasn't an original Mills idea like Timmy Trendy, for example.  I'd imagine it's more the rip-offs of Innuendo Bingo they do on Australian radio, in particular.

During that chat, I seem to remember Chris saying someone on Radio 1 was nicking features that they weren't happy about and the only feature I could think of was the rubbish version of Bangers on the breakfast show.

Yeah might have been a slight dig at their old producer Will Foster, who's arrival on the breakfast show coincided with the introduction of the rip-off of Bangers, funnily enough!

There was also the thing with Matt Edmondson but I think that was a deliberate on-air thing.

I did hear that idea where Scott leaves two listeners on the phone together and they have to awkwardly chat to each other like they're on a date on Will Manning's show first tbf. Anyway, it happens all the time in the radio industry where ideas are "borrowed" :P

Stealing good stuff is better than inventing bad stuff

Been dipping in and out over half term. Scott's excellent, every show feels like a show.

It shows that they're really at the top of their game - but really, that's how every show on Radio 1 should be - envied by other presenters, unattainable fun with equally unattainable listening figures.

Love Scott and Chris every day I listen when I can, specially in the gym in afternoons, it is a proper show and it seems to be getting better

Shame they cant be on breakfast, but then if they were I would not be able to listen as often as I can now
