Do people really listen to this shit on a daily basis on the way to work / uni?
Rather be hit by a bus.
A lot of people. That's why a lot of people are fucking stupid.
The only show I want to listen to is the one where Moyles is butt-fucked live on air by masked attackers. Comedy Dave is made to watch.
Chris Evans is actually ok because you don't have to see his face. Does talk over everything he plays though. STOP CHATTING OVER THE END OF PAPERBACK WRITER YOU MONG
"Moyles signs up for another year on air"
Narrowly beats the "Kittens run over by bus full of refugees" headline
it's not my cup of tea but a lot of people like his show so good luck to them
they deserve nothing more
He plays so few songs that it's talk radio really, isn't it?
but I know he's a harmless tit and lots of people enjoy his show.
but i catch bits of it once in a while
on the face of it he's harmless, but if ever there were evidence of 'dumbing down', he is surely it.
He's not paid to play music, he's paid to talk.
But it's a shame, when R1 used to actually manage to play some songs of a morn inbetween the 'banter'.
woke me up better than three defibrillator machines applied directly to my barse.
Their target demographic is 16 - 24 and it's a chat-based.
What's the problem?
If you want to listen to music in the morning turn on your iPod or listen to a show that has music at it's heart.
Their target demographic is DiS and it's a chat-based.
If you want to read erudite opinions in the morning read a news site or blog that has balanced reporting at it's heart.
It's the music that he plays I despise and thats my reason for listening to CDs on my drive to work.
I've grown to like it but it might be stokholm syndrome. I've listened to chris moyles for as long as he's been on radio 1, actually, which come to think about it is terrifying - Used to listen in the car on the way home from school when he was on in the afternoon when I was about 8 or something, listened in the shower when I was at high school.
Christ i've listened to chris moyles at some point in the day for about 3/7 days over the past 10 years. This is really frightening.
Used to listen to his 4-7am early breakfast show that on the drive to my summer job cos the tape deck in my car was knackered.
This is the cue for someone to say they were more into his Leeds Top Shop instore radio days.
I'd happily hammer the nails in personally.
