Scott Register

Radio Host

Scott Register is the host of Birmingham Mountain Radio's weekday morning show The Morning Blend.   For the past 20 years, he has also hosted the popular four hour Sunday morning show Reg's Coffee House.  Birmingham Magazine stated, "...for 20 years, Scott 'Reg' Register has been the voice -- if not the face -- of Birmingham's alternative music scene."  In addition to Reg's Coffee House, Scott is also the head of A&R for Think Indie Distribution.  Think Indie is a music distribution company founded by the Coalition of Independent Music Stores in 1999 and has been a partner of Record Store Day since its inception.  This is Scott Register's Fidelity High:  The Replacements // Tim // Sire Records // 1985.  Scott Says, “I’m not sure where I would be without The Replacements.  In a time where little made sense, the music from this Minneapolis band struck a chord with me and helped me through my formative years starting with 'Hootenanny' and 'Let It Be' and continuing forward but it was 'Tim' that was always my go to in times of thick or thin.  I remember the songs from 'Tim' playing at every turn whether it was on the sound system at a party, coming from the guy with his guitar in the corner or blasting out of car speakers… 'And hold my life. Until I'm ready to use it.  Hold my life.  Because I just might lose it!' 'Tim' stoked and calmed my angst, fueled my passions and healed my soul. 'The ones who love us best are the ones we'll lay to rest and visit their graves on holidays at best.  The ones who love us least are the ones we'll die to please, if it's any consolation, I don't begin to understand them.'  As the years went on, the band’s music has stayed with me every step of the way.  Listening to Replacements albums as well as Westerberg, Bash & Pop…the music has constantly been part of my soundtrack and has been a compass for me along life’s path.  'And if I don't see ya, in a long, long while, I'll try to find you left of the dial.'
