Some people have been declared as the voice of radio and certainly are part of the heart of music and both have been said of EMMA SCOTT - Radio presenter, radio plugger, a staunch supporter of independent music and plenty more besides, Emma has worked in the music industry for 34 years.

She grew to become a focal point for established and new sounds and artists, presenting shows with her individual style, passion and subsequently gathering thousands of radio shows under her belt across some of the UK finest radio stations including Q RADIO, HEART, POWER FM, GALAXY RADIO, HALLAM FM, and METRO FM as well as the two biggest commercial radio brands in the UK, GLOBAL RADIO and BAUER RADIO becoming one of the top 20 Drive Time presenters in the UK whilst at rock and metal station, KERRANG! RADIO.

2013 saw Emma take a bold move by stepping away from presenting and setting up her own radio plugging and PR Company, PLUGGIN BABY LTD working with hundreds of independent bands and artists, sharing and promoting their music across Britain’s radio stations and shows and in time the vast realm of internet radio too.

Now you can enjoy Emma Scott’s show, Pluggin Baby Radio , a 2 hour weekly guitar-based music show featuring the most exciting independent talent as well as established bands who have fired up Emma’s musical passion since she started her radio career back in 1988 on Daz In The Hat Radio.

Brooke & Aura

Aura Romero

Aura is a melomaniac with a huge love for indie music. She is an elder millennial from Chile who loves going to gigs, meeting new people in concert lines, and learning new things. Her hobbies include listening to music at all possible hours of the day, reading, and trying to keep her house cat hair-free.

Aura's biggest dreams are writing a book and being a member of an awful cover band someday. You can catch her on X (aka Twitter) @morning_rain20

Shows: In Case You Missed It with Brooke & Aura


Brooke is a neurospicy Canadian queenager and former MySpace music maven, whose late diagnoses recently helped her emerge from nearly a decade of music rot. Now fully embracing her inner fangirl, she spends all of her free time (and what should probably be her retirement money) driving around North America for shows, following her faves on tour, and bopping back and forth to the UK to catch indie gigs and festivals. You can read about her adventures, artist interviews, and other musical musings on her blog.

Brooke is bringing the same big indie-loving energy to Daz in the Hat Radio every week with Sound Check, a 1-hour show jam-packed with the freshest, just-released bangers from unsigned and indie label artists. She'll also be joined by Aura for In Case You Missed It, a twice-monthly genre-spanning show spotlighting the best indie tunes released in the very recent past.
