Features

Radio Station Invasion

A feature in the first couple of weeks involved all of Radio X's sister stations being listed on a big wheel in the studio. Chris would then spin the wheel and whichever it would land on, Chris would go to the studio of the station chosen and try to interrupt their show. He appeared on Smooth Radio and Classic FM, but Jamie Theakston refused to let him in to the Heart London studio.

Rob DJ's Monday Night Pub Quiz
