Rob DJ's Monday Night Pub Quiz is a feature of The Chris Moyles Show on both BBC Radio 1 and Radio X which is played on a Tuesday morning.

Origins

The quiz was written by a friend of Chris' from Leeds, Rob DJ, who sent some questions from a real quiz that he hosted in a pub every Monday

BBC Radio 1

Rob's questions were given to the producer, Rachel (later Aled), who would then ask five questions to the other members of the team. For a brief period, a member of the audience was given the chance to ring in and play along, and there was also a way for listeners to play by mobile phone.

Radio X

In 2015, the feature was brought back for The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X. Rob DJ appeared live at the Radio X studios in the inaugural broadcast of the feature and following that streamed live into the studio. It remains to be seen whether Rob will be live for each quiz or with recorded segments as per Radio 1.

Format

The questions often featured a mathematical problem and an anagram of a television show or celebrity. Many arguments were had over the answers, but the answer given by Rob DJ was final.

Rob DJ published a quiz book on the back of the success of this feature.
