Roger Scott

1943 - 1989




After appearing in North America as a token British jock in the wake of Beatlemania, Roger Scott broke into UK radio with UBN. He subsequently moved to London's Capital Radio, as part of the original on-air line-up on, where his afternoon shows spawned the Three O'Clock Thrill and the Hitline.

His last year was spent at BBC Radio 1 where his national exposure influenced a new breed of presenters.

Roger blended a love of contemporary music with an encyclopedic knowledge of its heritage and an enviable knack of opening his mouth only when he had something of substance to say.
