Emma Scott / Presenter

Emma Scott shows

I have worked in the music industry for 34 years. I started in full time radio straight out of school at the age of 16 on a Youth training Scheme.

Most of my career involved radio presenting, which I did from 1988 to 2013. Since 2013, I’ve been running my own radio plugging and PR company, Pluggin Baby LTD and worked with hundreds of rock and metal bands – as well as other genres.

I have also presented live music TV shows, hosted live concerts, been a voice over artist, blogger, band manager, helped run a record label and put on live music events in Birmingham, UK from 2006 to 2013.

I won three Promoter of the Year awards at the Pure Rawk Awards in 2011, 2012 and 2013 and a Live Music Business Awards “Best Local Promoter” in 2012. Massive highlights of my career!

I’ve presented thousands of radio shows and worked all over the UK at radio stations like: Kerrang! Radio, Q Radio, Heart, Power FM, Galaxy Radio, Hallam FM, Metro FM.

I have worked for the two biggest commercial radio brands in the UK. Global Radio and Bauer Radio and was one of the top 20 Drive Time presenters in the UK whilst at rock and metal station, Kerrang! Radio. I was approached by BBC Radio 1 twice in the late 90’s.

For 9 years, I’ve been running my own company Pluggin Baby LTD and working with mostly independent artists to get them radio airplay, reviews and online coverage of their new releases.

I have great relationships with my radio contacts and even wrote two books for musicians too! The first one is called Break Your Band: A Guide to Getting Radio Airplay and the most recent is called If It Was My Band. I try to help musicians move up the music industry ladder.

I recently undertook a Music Entrepreneur Master’s Degree, which I passed with a distinction (a first). My dissertation was about teaching independent musicians how to get their own radio airplay and I created Youtube videos, podcasts and ran free online webinars entitled “How to Get Radio Airplay”
