The place where everyone hangs out, chats, gossips, and argues

I listen on and off, I sometimes have to work in the morning and can't listen then. I'm starting to find it a bit repetitive, though. Also, I never really realised before how little music he plays. I might be wrong, but it seems like he can talk for the whole first hour without playing a tune.

Apart from that, I think he's good on Radio X. He's grown up now since his Radio 1 days, and it's for the better. He's better than Christian O'Connell and his unfunny sidekick Richie, that's for sure.

Interesting, I can't say I disagree with you in the main as I do enjoy the show. However I think he's only grown up when it suits him. Moyles has spent literally hours in the past few weeks both on air and on the podcast rating over a dozen different fart sound effects. That also included him playing them to a GUEST as the very first line of questioning to someone who clearly didn't appreciate it in Will.i.am.

I'm starting to find myself irritated by Chris' apparent inability to move on from a topic. Half an hour on Pippa getting drunk at the NME awards or whatever is fine. 90mins of it punctuated only by ad breaks (and maybe one song) is a bit much. I dunno if it's a lack of material - I don't think it is really. Maybe they always did this and I'm only just noticing?

I thought the first 45mins or so were kind of awkward. I get that a radio show from the London Eye is a great concept and it would appeal to Chris from the point of view of doing unusual radio, but he sounded so nervous about the height, I was worried he was gonna freak out and actually refuse to go. I guess they relied on his professionalism winning out, which is a risky gamble to take. After that they settled in and what I heard was pretty good.

As a Radio 1 listener, I was intrigued by the Wombats readily agreeing with Chris that Cheetah Tongue was the first single from their new album. R1 promoted and playlisted Lemon To A Knife Fight as the lead single, but apparently in the world of RX that single didn't exist. So weird.

Regarding the “new” show - I like the more laid back, older version of Chris, the continuity of Dom alongside him and the fact that the music is decent instead of the shit that he had to play on Radio 1, particularly towards the end.

What I dislike about it - the “no music” first 30-45 minutes, the amount of competitions and repetitive ads, the rest of the team is weaker (particularly since Dave M left) and also when he goes on about all the health and fitness crap, I’d rather have a fat and happy with it Chris! Or “juice” all you like but just don’t go on about it on air...

Still, on the whole it’s much better than any of the alternatives. And great to see Toby Lerone back!

Yes the Radio One Show had drive and a bit of flexible maybe but definite structure - and a t wa a better for it

For me on a small note am fed up with the Rob DJ sick/sex sound effects and th constant playing of the Halliluya sound effect

For Balance though I thought the show was getting a lot tighter the last couple of months
