Local radio wins award – Scotty and Nige on FM 104

By JimmyK - 13 October 2008 18

The 2008 ACRA (Australian Commercial Radio Awards) results are in and  Canberra’s Scotty and Nige have won best on air team for the regional market.

Thoughts?[ED – FM 104.7 right?]

The Hamish and Andy Show won the top honour.

On the subject of local radio, and last week 2CC had a guy on the drive show that I hadn’t heard of before. Does anyone know who that was?

I listened to Hamish and Andy for years when I lived in Sydney and although I find Scotty and Nige easy to listen to in the morning, there country bumpkin sense of humour does not really appeal to me.
Don’t get me wrong I love that Canberra has it’s own radio personalities and more power to them for winning… But the comparison to Hamish and Andy does not even warrant being measured as far as I am concerned.
That is just my opinion of course. We all have our own tastes.

Scotty and Nige are funny, and it’s not “stupid” humour. I think they do it better than Hamish and Andy, to be honest. Hamish and Andy are better on TV, doing pranks. Scotty and Nige are very listenable, in fact I prefer them to the music.

Taht awful woman and nondescript man on the other station don’t have a chance.

Agreed there, Scotty and Nige outrank Hamish and Andy who definately try too hard to push out the jokes and end up just pushing out the most rediculous rubbish most of the time. But then they’re 200% better than the dkhead and jackieo hour of bullsht, it forces me to listen to the screaming on 2JJJ.

When I accidently listen to Scotty and Nige in the mornings (after having listened to Hamish and Andy the previous afternoon) I feel like pushing a pencil into my eye. They are woeful, unfunny try-hards. Dear lord – there must be wittier people in Canberra than those guys.

Big ups to the Mt Gambier massive.

Primal 3:18 pm 13 Oct 08

Now if they would please fix up the music I’d happily go back to listening to them…

Ben Pollack, Media Manager for the Canberra Raiders.

Congratulations to Scotty, Nige, Mike and Michael.

I’m pleased for Scotty & Nige also, well done guys.

> Does anyone know why Cam defected from 104?

104 & 106 are the same workplace.

I am pleased Scotty and Nige took out an award.

They get a smile out of me on most morning’s and I cannot stand Cam and Lisa.

Does anyone know why Cam defected from 104?

Mike Welsh from 2CC and his producer Michael Thompson got a gong as well by the looks of things. The pair won last year as well, which is pretty cool.

Yes AussieGal – this must be a horrible joke of some kind.

Actually, I am actually pleased that ‘Cam and Lisa in the Morning’ (FM106.3) actually did not actually win actually. They should rename their show “Actually in the Morning”.
Take a listen one morning – count the number of times ‘actually’ is said in one break, it will actaully drive you actually mad.

And if the “actuallys” don’t, the lame banter will 😛
