SPOONY

Spoony's career started on London Underground (a leading pirate radio station in the mid-nineties). He then joined Kiss 100, where he became a member of the Dreem Teem with Mikee B and Timmi Magic. The Dreem Team then via a groundbreaking show on Galaxy brought UK garage to Radio 1 in January 2000.
His popular moniker, Spoony, was coined during his youth, where he was said to have a 'head shaped like a spoon'.
His weekend breakfast show (October 2003 - Sept 2006) allowed listeners to join the Early Doors Club, play Judge Fudge, and become a Local Legend. Another long-running feature was Mills & Spoon (a nameplay of the Mills & Boon books), in which Scott Mills read out love stories every Sunday.
On 31 July 2006 the BBC announced that Spoony was to leave Radio 1 after six years with the station to concentrate on Five Live work. His early breakfast slot was replaced by Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates.[3] Spoony presented his final Radio 1 show on 17 September 2006. He can currently be heard on Radio 5 Live with 'Spoony meets....'. A series of shows that will see him one-on-one with various players from the British football leagues.
A trailblazer alongside Timmi and Mikee, took UK Garage to venues in the UK audience and further afield. He was resident DJ at the UK's top Garage and R'n'B club night 'Twice as Nice' for 7 years, mixing and compiling 3 gold selling compilation albums for the brand. He has had residencies in Ibiza and Ayai Napa for over 10 years as well as annual visits to many other mediterranean islands.
