Radio One Online Chat Transcript, 21st February 2001

Who would you want to appear on the show?

Moyles: Probably anybody better than they've actually organised. I met a lap dancer at Stringers who was from Russia. She was quite nice. I think her name was Strudle. It would be nice to have Robbie Williams on singing. Or Will Smith. Or anybody I've maybe even slightly heard of

What are you getting or have you got anything already (for his Birthday)?

Moyles: I haven't got anything yet. The surprise is they've got me nothing. Here comes the boring stuff...

How did you start in the radio business?

Moyles: I pestered the local radio station until they let me come in and make the coffee and answer the phones ... and eventually the boss was worn down

Do u enjoy your job and was it your life time ambition?

Moyles: Yeah

What do you honestly think you would be doing if you weren't the Saviour of Radio 1? A contender for the world's strongest man? A jockey?

Moyles: I'd be a nuclear physicist
Dave: I'd be a philanthropist
Will: I'd be into antidisestablishmentarianism
Lizzie: I'd be an exisitentialist

What are your plans for the future?

Moyles: Go home and watch the Leeds game

Would you like to do more television work in the near future?

Moyles: Maybe. I don't know. Tv takes too long, however the money's great, so never say never.

How long do you think you're going to stay @ Radio1?

Moyles: Well, Mayo's just done 15 years, so I'd be happy if I got another 15 months in before I'm fired.

What's the thing that you got told off the most for?

Moyles: T & B's, but you have to guess what T & B's stands for

What things have you wanted to do that you've never been able to?

Dave: There's been nothing major. Sometimes there's stuff we can't do for legal reasons

When r we gonna hear more getolife?

Dave: We've been dropped
Moyles: To be fair, they never actually signed us. The record company chief listened to the record and then dropped us

Are you going to bring out an album of your parodies

Moyles: When we've actually managed to record 12 decent song parodies. we haven't got enough for an album yet. We'd do 12 brand new songs, and 14 for the DVD

What's happened to Lizzie's Celebrity Shopathon?

Moyles: It was dropped because it was shit. It was cheap, tacky bilge.
Moyles: It will come back under a completely different name.

Do you allow people to visit you and watch you at work? I am a podium dancer in various clubs...I'm sure you wouldn't turn down the opportunity to see a girl in her G-string, would you?

Moyles: Can we get a picture of her? We'll ring her, but if she's a minger, then she can't come in. That's not sexist because we don't let ugly blokes in either

Chris, we all love u. Have you ever been threatened with physical violence after slagging people off on air?

Moyles: No

Are you not sick of working 6 days a week? What do you do on your day off?

Moyles: No, 6 days a week isn't that bad, becuase the sat show finishes at 1, so if we weren't working, we'd be just getting out of bed. The money's great. We now get paid £30 a show

Dave, what's the nastiest thing Chris has ever said to you, and does it hurt?

Dave: It doesn't hurt. It's part of the job. He pisses me off on a weekly basis.

Do you make up most of what you say on-air or is it planned?

Moyles: It's made up as we go along

Why do you never shut up and let us listen to the songs?

Moyles: We don't want her listening to the show any more. Go and listen to Dr. Fox

Comedy Dave - Are you the narator off Shipwrecked?

Dave: No, but I wish I was, because that'd be cashmungous. I am available for voice overs

Who, except you of course, do you think is the best DJ on Radio 1?

Moyles: It was Simon Mayo
Lizzie: I like Scott Mills
Moyles: I like Dixie Peach and Gary Davies.
Lizzie: And Adrian Just

If you hate your ringtone, why don't you just buy a new phone instead of scabbing one off a phone company by plugging their brandname?

Moyles: Because if I can get it for free, what's the point in paying for it?

Who would you rather Have Kylie or Rachel from S Club?

Moyles: That's a hard one. I'd say Kylie
Dave: I'd go for Rachel
Lizzie: Neither. Actually, Kylie, I love Kylie.

Hi chris and dave! do you like will or rhys better and lizzie or simon/mel?

Moyles: Will better than Rhys. Lizzie better than Melinda
Moyles: It's good having Lizzie on the show, because finally we have a BA who doesn't owe us any money

Moyles: We're acutally tee-totalers and just lie on the air

How did you come up with the great receptionist stopwatch challenge? It is pure genius, it really is.

Dave: That must have been me then
Moyles: It was an idea inspired by some silly competition that Lizzie came up with.

What do you think of your fans that sit outside every Saturday?

Dave: They're great and we love them all!
Moyles: We're glad that they're so into the show that they'd like to come and meet us, but we wish they'd wash more
Moyles: Can we have some better looking ones?

What is your prefered colour of toilet roll?

Moyles: White, like the Leeds home kit

Is it easy to handle chris or do you tell him nothing because it'll be on air tomorrow

Will: It's easy to handle, and I don't tell him anything that I don't want to end up on the air. He's very well-behaved.

Chris - If you only have the futon bed thingy, where does ya mum sleep?

Moyles: Who said my mum is staying at my place. How do you know she's not staying in a top-notch hotel? She's not, as it turns out...

Are small ones more juicy? (question from 48DD)

Moyles: No, and can you send a picture?

Do you really loathe Geri Halliwell?

Moyles: It is a tragedy to the 100,000 people who came to see the show last summer

Have any of your guests ever walked out of the show? who?

Dave: Kenickie were a pain
Moyles: Atomic Kitten were slightly annoying. They all spoke at exactly the same time. They weren't difficult, they were just too giddy.

Will Dave the photographer ever make a come back, we are missing him?

Dave: Possibly, maybe
Moyles: We miss Dave a little bit
Moyles: We might get him back, but he does get over-excited

Lizzie why are you single? Are you really that ugly???

Lizzie: Yes. You can find me on
Dave: Skate mingers

Moyles: Can we just say that Lizzie is beautiful, she's very charming, funny and sexy, but she's not page 3 material

Dave: Are they a recognised community?
Moyles: Where is the pimp community? Is it near the ****** community, or in a nicer part of town?
Moyles: Huggy Bear used to play football with Dave

So, what do you really think of Polly 3am?
