Roger Scott’s ‘Classic Albums Series’. Roger established himself as one of the most influential voices in radio throughout the 1970’s and 80’s. Roger began his radio career in 1966 in New York before moving to Montreal the following year where he honed his skills and developed his style as a broadcaster. He returned home in 1971 to coincide with the introduction of commercial radio in the UK. Following brief stints with UBN and Radio 1, he began a career-defining 15 years at Capital Radio in 1973 where he gathered a cult following, shaping the musical tastes of a whole generation of Londoners. Then in 1988, Roger returned to Radio 1 where fittingly, he broadcast to a national audience for the final 2 years of his career before dying tragically young at the age of 46. Rogers ‘Classic Albums Series’ is something very special and thanks to Roger’s son Jamie, ‘Mystery Train Radio’ has been granted permission to share these wonderful programs. Hear shows that feature music and interviews with, The Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, Led Zeppelin, U2, The Band, The Travelling Wilburys and more! Let Roger guide you.
