Since the show's early 'edgy feel' mix of new bands and no-holds-barred style approach, the show has become less focused on new talent and more celebrity-led.

One format question asked to every guest is 'call, text or reject' where the guest is given three people related to their lives, one they call, one they have to text and the other they must reject.

At the end of each interview, the celebrity featured is asked to sign the "Hot Desk" with a marker pen. This is reminiscent of TFI Friday, the television show hosted by Chris Evans which ran from 1996 to 2000. When Evans finished his interviews, he would also ask the celebrity to sign the desk with a marker pen. This format provides the producer (www.umtv.tv) with great access to the biggest music stars and A-list celebrities.
