Chris Moyles and his parody album

OK so Chris Moyles has finally released his parody album after years going on about it, it's finally out there.

There is a particular reason why i dont listen to Radio 1 in the morning, not enough music and too much Moyles talking.

I mean in small doses ( I mean 5 minute doses) I can find him amusing, but anything more than that and i find him grating on me, i mean he repeats things too many times, he'll say a joke and he'll keep saying it for the next 5 minutes. And if he does play music it's one of his bloody parody songs off said album.

I mean really is this what the BBC licence fee (i'm assuming it covers their radio channels) is paying for.

I can see why his listening figures have dropped in recent months.

Comments

  • Compare to other breakfast DJs. Moyles can be a flipping relief.
    Most DJs are still in the Tony Blackburn era. Sensational!
  • I find him obnoxious.
  • he's no Terry Wogan  image
  • Compared to the tedium of commercial radio stations, Chris Moyles is a breath of fresh air.  If you want more music then listen to Virgin or Capital.
  • I do tend to prefer Virgin (or Absolute Radio as it's been called for the last year image).

    I've just found over the last few weeks that its not only me that shares this view of Moyles and more and more people are becoming tired of him.

  • I find it amusing that people feel the need to rant about him instead of just switching to a different station... and yes I know your licence fee is paying for him but they don't plan BBC programming just to suit you and his show is still very popular.
  • the worst thing about this is the BBC offer you literally no alternative, apart from radio 2, radio 3, radio 4, radio 5 live, local radio...

  • 6 music, 1 Xtra, Radio 7..... I see what you mean.
  • and you don't even have to have a licence to listen to the radio...
  • Yeah I have a change channel button on my radio

    Last time I looked, you DO actually!image

    Your TV licence covers you for radio broadcasts.

    Never heard of anyone getting sued for listening to the Archers though....image

    Although they should have gone to jail image

  • And now I've had a little google on the subject it seems the jury is out.....image
  • if you don't have a tv licence you can still listen to the radio for nowt surely (or listen online)

    and there is NOTHING wrong with listening to the Archers image

  • I think he is an irritating, self opinionated, self publising wannabe'celebrity', I don't find him funny or interesting in any way shape or form.
    That is why I don't listen to his radio show and tend to switch the tv channel over if he comes on.

    The fact that I have an alternative to listening to him, does not in itself devalue the fact I dislike him.
  • Chris Evans used to, (or maybe still has), a reputation of being an egotistical idiot, but I used to love listening to him on Radio 2 drive hour. The show is very entertaining.
  • I dont think Chris Moyles is as popular as he was though, and there are DJ's on Radio 1 that i would rather listen to at that time in the morning, Scott Mills for one..

    Really at the moment it seems that The Chris Moyles radio show is just a shameless plug for his parody album.

    I mean really thats all i started this thread for, and considering some of the other thread topics that get started on here, i thought that i wouldnt be out of place starting this one image

  • he has a head like a large potato, in fact when I get a baked potato I request one as large as his head. So maybe he may actually serve a purpose in this life, a potato measurement standard. He is about as funny as a terminal illness.
  • The thing about Moyles is that he does have a ego. Yes, he`s got a big mouth.. Yes, he`s opinionated.
    But that what makes him so popular. When you wake up in the morning, do you want some
    couple dribbling and play constant love songs every 5 minutes. Or do you want someone who
    could put a smile and a laugh on your face. He didn`t get to where he is today out of nothing.
    If you read his autobiography, he had a goal and knew that he wanted to get to the top, you have
    to take what`s given and work hard for it.

    There are plenty of egos on the radio. Jonathan Ross, Danny Baker (although he`s good anyway),
    Johnny Vaughan, Pat Sharp, Steve Wright, Vanessa Feltz, Jeremy Kyle.

  • On the very rare occasions when I have accidentally heard him on the radio (I don't listen to Radio 1), his pointless drivel irritates the hell out of me.

     

  •  Many Radio one Dj's are very aloof anyway, they have an attitude about them as if they are special. Moyles is just a sarky fat cunt who is not funny and if it wasn't for the other members of the breakfast team the show would have been axed for falling listeners ratings ages ago.

  • Chris Moyles wouldn`t be axed because of three things.
    1. One of his mates is Andy Parfitt, the controller of radio 1.
    2. One of his mates is Ben Cooper, the deputy controller of radio 1.
    3. He brings more celebrities into his show than any other mainly because 
        his show has the right audience to plug something. Radio 1 is targeted at
        teenagers to 35 year olds.

    Finally, Moyles has signed a new contract so expect him to be there for a while.
    Whoever will replace him. Expect Vernon Kay or Greg James.
  • I still expect to see his head covered in melted mature cheddar and beans!
  • Never heard of anyone getting sued for listening to the Archers though....image

    Suddenly goes off LBimageimage

    I listen to Planet Rock a lot at home but not in the car as I don't have a DAB tuner

  • I quite like him!!!, although I wouldn't by his album or books.

  • Nicely put Mr Smith, I'll go along with that!
  • I stopped listening to radio 1 about 3 yearsago when the godlike Mark and Lard were on.I listen to xfm manchester now (97,7fm). On the rare times i hear r1 at work i cant believe how creepy and crawley they are when the so called superstars are on, the a##e licking is unbelievable.Sometimes late night radio 2 sounds good.

    He's not stupid.  He knows the show only works because of the team, which is why he's picked those people to work with.
  • eeep! I saw it! You did it! Your eyes flashed red!!

    ...

    so how long has that been happening, then?
