Thread: Radio 2

  1. #1

    Radio 2

    I see the BBC is possibly shooting itself in the foot again by replacing the Steve Wright in the afternoon show with Scott Mills for 2 hours and extending the Sara Cox show by an hour. Didnít they learn anything from the Simon Mayo experiment with Jo Whitley?

    Steve Wright has gone stale but Scott Mills??? Really?? He’s been a disaster when stepping in for Ken Bruce.

    I still enjoy the Steve Wright show but totally agree about Scott Mills.

    Sorry but I don't see the comparison?
    Didn't they try Simon Mayo and Jo Whiley as joint presenters?

    Bloop, perhaps a poor example,my point is Simon Mayo had a very successful show and the BBC messed with the format and Simon Mayo left and has pretty much the exact same show on Greatest Hits. I wonder if Steve Wright will end up there ?

    Ken Bruce is unbelievably bland. About as exciting as a wet dishcloth.

    Steve Wright belonged in the past with his “Love your show Steve” but Scott Mills offers nothing. He is just incredibly dull

    I think he’s great. Gentle, dry sense of humour and never ever talks over the back end of songs.

    Perhaps the only talent that the BBC could recruit within their, don't upset the Daily Mail, wage structures and enforced austerity is the likes of Scott Mills?

    I was under the impression that they talk over the back end of songs to deter illegal recordings?

    Wasn’t aware of this and Ken Bruce doesn’t do it but Steve Wright cuts in really early

    Steve Wright is awful, if he is going I might be able to have Radio 2 on in the afternoon . Although 6 music and https://www.bluesandrootsradio.com/ are my preferred stations.

    Ah ok. I think the Simon Mayo situation was entirely different as they pissed on his chips in order to tick a few boxes by squeezing a female presenter into the daily schedule.
    I notice that Steve Wright is still doing his Sunday Radio 2 show, so I think him leaving afternoons is his decision and not influenced by anything else other than to reduce his workload. I doubt his new BBC contract would allow him to work for a direct competitor at the same time anyway.

    No. And they never will. Sara Cox and Jo Whitley are abysmal radio presenters, seeing Whitley introducing Glastonbury where you could see her knickers was disgraceful, and to make matters worse she was so frigginí patronising.
    Everyone deserves a chance, but it should be on ability not just gender.

    And donít mention Scott Mills - Aargh useless.

    I'd be up for listening to more radio but getting replacement valves is a right b*gger these days.

    You can get them in Home Bargains, so no problem.

    Years ago, possibly, but if there's anyone still recording songs off the radio then they need help!
