The show was announced by Moyles on YouTube and Twitter on 6 September 2015, and began broadcasting at 6:30am on 21 September 2015, almost three years to the day since Moyles was last heard on radio.
It has been confirmed that O2 will sponsor the show and that Sandy Beech/Music4 have been approached to produce the jingles.
The first song played on the new show was Love Machine by Girls Aloud.

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.

An hour of random songs every Friday at 9am, just like the Golden Hour. Unlike on Radio 1, Chris picks all of the songs himself, although they must be pre-approved by the management.
The Wheel of Slightly Inappropriate Tracks
Main article: The Wheel of Inappropriate Songs
Every day, a giant wheel in the studio with several tracks that wouldn't normally be played on Radio X is spun by Chris, and the track it stops on is played in full on the show.
Every Friday, Chris plays a Queen song with Freddie Mercury's vocals isolated during part of the song, to highlight Freddie's singing voice.
Occasionally, the team and Toby Tarrant will be given a phrase which has been played backwards, and they must try to say it backwards. The results are played forwards, with hilarious results.
Dominic reads letters sent to the team, some of which are accompanied by gifts from listeners or companies seeking free publicity. The address jingle is sometimes sung by celebrities, including Reese Witherspoon and David Hasselhoff.
