Darren Scott is starting up his own radio station after the "incident" at Jacaranda, now everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but I really miss him as a morning DJ and especially as a supersport presenter. He will be brining back the rugby panel and one or two familiar voices with him.



The new station will be called Ballz Visual radio and it will be up and running when their facebook page "Ballz", reaches 10 000 likes. They are currently sitting on 8900 likes, so +- 1000 to go.

The link is as follows: http://url?sa=t&rct=...5GqXL5d2tWTU9bg (hopefully my link works)


Please show your support and go and like his facebook page.
Lastly Darren's son has been diagnosed with a tumor on his kidney, and after all that family has been through, I think everyone's support will be appreciated to get his radio staion of the ground.

Just wondering (and not to be negative) but how does 10000 likes relate to the actual starting of the radio station?

1) 10000 likes means you can get a licence? Unlikely me thinks
2) It means you have sufficient support .... you can get some sponsorship/advertising?


I listened to him occasionally and he is entertaining so hope it works out for him!

Not sure how it works over inter(do what you want)net, but to be able to braodcast or keep your licence you need 100 000 listeners.

My understanding is that this will be a internet radio station. I think the 10 000 likes was used, to attract sponsorship and advertising and maybe to piss off the "ex" radio station.

The first 6000/7000 likes came quickly, but they have slowed down considerable in the last week. So hopefully with the bad news on little Mark, they can at least launch their station this week.

I liked Darren on Jacaranda and on supersport he was good. Lets hope he pulls off the new station.

Oh yes, now I remember. And Supersport? Or was it the same reason?

I am not a fan of the man. He has a bit of an ego problem...

People still listen to radio stations?

as for Darren - good luck, for some reason i came across an article related to the whole incident this morning, and i guess you still have some serious damage control to do, cos I think you will get a lot of flack. That said, I used to listen to the bugger on Capital Radio 604 back in the 80's - so he certainly has proved himself as a DJ
