A hugely entertaining memoir by one of the UK's most experienced and popular radio DJs.
'There are five people in the world I trust. Scott Mills is one of them.' The Hoff
Is Scott Mills married?
Is Scott Mills in Men In Black 3?
Is Scott Mills a hermaphrodite?
Believe it or not, Scott knows you want the answers to these conundrums after Googling himself. A lot. So he's here to provide them, and to disclose everything else you could wish to know about the highs and lows of life behind the mic while he's at it.
Love You Bye is the story of how a painfully shy boy from the suburbs of Southampton pushed aside his fears to reach his dream job at Radio 1, and just about managed to stay there. Full of the warmth and wit you'd expect from the man who brought innuendo bingo to the nation, it's not only a fascinating insight into the life of one of our favourite DJs, it's bley funny, too.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

First of all, I'm not exactly in Scott's target market. I'm more of the listener that gets him called "the housewife's favorite." I really enjoy his podcast and I respect that he is open about his social anxiety and sexuality without relying on them to be the gimmick of his on-air personality. He's fun and funny, but there's always something vulnerable about Scott. I think that's why women adore him.
A lot of this book is a repeat from his show, but with more details and names. It's enjoyable and light in the same way his show is. What sets this apart from other celeb books is the times he lets you peak into his personal life, from coming out to his parents, to his almost crippling anxiety issues, to the death of his live-in boyfriend. The thing is, he doesn't roll around in those memories or even blame them for his setbacks. Even the drinking and subsequent on-air drunk episode that followed his boyfriend's death -- he doesn't tell them as if looking for your pity. When writing about mental illness, he explains that he doesn't want other people to feel embarassed or ashamed, and that seems to penetrate so many of his stories. He's done dumb things, just like everyone has. He's gone through hard times, just like everyone. He's not ashamed of who he is.
For long time listeners, there are some inside jokes and also some clarifications -- especially regarding his relationship with his flatmate of 11 years, Fraser. Am I the only one surprised by that revelation? Expect some stuff you've heard, and some stuff you've heard told in more detail (the Uganda documentary, the desert trek, the Fringe Festival).
This was a good read and I will definitely use it with some of my students, especially those who are shy or struggling with peer acceptance.
Go on, Pigs!
Scott and his crew do a daily radio show on BBC Radio 1. He is the most popular DJ that currently plays on the air in the UK. His style is family friendly. His relationship with his producer and co-stars is genuine and not just coworkers thrown together at a job.
This book tells the journey that Scott Mills took from childhood to BBC Radio 1. It is a peek into the life of UK's most beloved DJ. Some autobiography's delve too much into thier personal lives in my opinion and really give us the dirt.Scott knows how to be open and honest with his readers while at the same time keeping just enough details to himself to retain his privacy.
It is an enjoyable read that I read in one sitting! I enjoyed it all, from his tales of hanging out with David "the hoff" Hasselhoff to his relationship with his long-suffering housemate and best friend, Fraser.
For the past two years I have enjoyed Scott's podcasts in abundance and now with this book I have fallen in love. It's nice to read an autobiography that reveals the celebrity to be just as he appears on the radio; sweet, unassuming and a guy everyone would love to hang with.
In a "celebrity" autobiography, you'll usually find a lot of negative events are glossed over. In Scott Mills' book, he doesn't pull any punches when talking about problems he's faced. From depression, to being gay, to his drinking problems, Scott opens up a great deal here. It's a revealing reads for anyone even familiar for him, and for those who have listened to him for years there are inside jokes smattered throughout.
