Quite simply Chris Moyles is the best Radio broadcaster that has graced the airwaves ever, bar none!! Well done to him and the team for a truly wonderful show. Wherever Chris goes, so shall I. –Boardboy
Gutted... simply gutted! I've been there since the start; to be honest - i didn't even contemplate this coming today. I simply have so many memories attached to this show (it's just a show...) - it is/was so much more than that to me... got me through college, uni, work - a whole 18 month backpacking trip. LOVE. THE. SHOW. – Ritchie
Shocked, gutted, upset can't really put it into words to be honest. Now what the hell do I listen to in the morning? - James H
In all seriousness, I am very sad. The show has been a saving grace for me over the past 6 years (that's how long I've been listening), seen me through difficult mornings, quashed many a bad dream memory, lifted me out of grumpy moods or simply been a great start to a great day.
It's so weird to think how much I couldn't stand the guy in 1997 and remember fearing the likely possibility of him getting Breakfast, and still wasn't a fan when he did. Back then, I was actually looking forward to this very day. But since, so much has changed.
Apart from echoing everything everyone else has said, there was a moment this morning when it suddenly occurred to me that we'll never have a Chris Moyles (breakfast) Show run-up to Christmas again. That made me sad too. – Latina
I have to start looking for a new job - I don't think I will be 'coping' for long without the CMS (my job is incredibly boring). I am really gutted as everyone else but I hope Chris Moyles is going to another radio station so I can follow him. - Turicum
So sad, i live outside the UK and end up paying £30 a month for the internet connection so I can hear Sir C Moyles, was worth every Penny... I had a agreement with my Youngest, no matter were I was in the World we would always both tune in for the cheesy Song, so we were enjoying and thinking of each other... now, what left... my two kids only like CM, and they are both in the target age group. CM was and is the best of all time! - Radical_mit2
To put it bluntly, I now have a big hole in my life. I have listened almost every day for around 8 years now, and the show just feels a part of my life. Not just Chris, but the whole team (especially Rachel and Carrie, and even Longman!). All the show’s features are a part of my every day life - Cheesey song, Car park Catchphrase, Monday Night Pub quiz, Classical Class, Golden Hour. And the old ones too - WHERE AM I, Yesterday’s Weather, and many more. - Martyn B
Well I now need a new job closer to home. Sounds cliched but listening to Moyles really made my commute so much easier! Truly gutted. - jocky85
I wrongly assumed we had more time left of the show given the news last year on Chris' golden handcuffs contract. Kinda gutting that it's only a matter of weeks. I've not been a listener as long as some people on this forum but I'm so glad I found the show (and this forum), because it's been a huge part of my daily life. - richbrown
Well I didn't expect that. Not until next year anyway. Anyway, thanks to Chris for many happy mornings of listening and all the laughs. All the best for the future mate. – DaveBedford
Just a little bit gutted. It seems absolutely ridiculous to be as gutted as I am. Ive been listening to Chris Moyles while my mum drove me to school, on the train to college, and now while Im at university. The only constant thing in my life has been listening everyday and Ive grown up while the team have. - gabbie
I have to say that I am gutted to hear this, especially as I missed it live and had to hear the news from Fearne at lunchtime. I’ve been listening to Chris since his last year on Afternoons (Since March 2003) and could probably count on one hand how many breakfast shows I have missed in the past 8 & a half years. The show has been a part of my daily life since and it will be really weird waking up and not hearing him and the team as I get ready for my day. I have no idea if Chris or the team will ever read this thread, but I think we all should thank them for doing what they do every day and wish them all the best in the future (Hopefully still on Radio 1!)
I just want to thank all the people on this site who upload the show, and clips, on a daily basis. I, and I'm sure I am not alone, will be downloading old shows in the future just to have a daily fix of Moyles in my life. Thanks for what you do too. – MRM
I am totally and utterly gutted about this, Chris Moyles and his various teams\shows have been a massive part of my life since 99/00, I almost feel like they are family, even more so since I started driving for a living 5 years ago so got to listen to the whole show every day. There is nothing that comes anywhere near the show on the airwaves. I wish them all the best and should they move to another station, I will follow them and listen no matter what time of day they are on. Legends all of them who have ever been involved with any show that Chris has ever done. – Rivixter
I am absolutely devastated! I think like most listeners I really felt a part of the show and in turn it was a part of my day-to-day life. We need to just find out where the show moves to (hopefully it does) and then we can all migrate Moyles and Mills are the only reason i listen to radio1. –jjstubbs
I am absolutely gutted to hear the news today. I've been a long time listener of the show. In fact 2002 was when I first listened. I've listened to the show nearly everyday, even when it was on Sirius in the US. I find it weird that in a couple of months, there will be no more Cheesy Song, Rob DJ's Monday Night Pub Quiz, McFly Day, Golden Hour, Carpark Catchphrase etc, and yes, I'll confess I join in the "when I say (x) you say (y) in the car!"
The Chris Moyles Breakfast Show is the only enjoyable part of my daily 25 mile journey to work. It has been great to laugh along with them. So to Chris, Dave, Dom, Aled, Tina, Freya, Pippa, Sam, Ant, Rachel, Carrie, Juliette, Will and to a lesser extent Matt Fincham, I thank you all. – G Waites
Devastated!! It still hasn't quite sunk in yet to be honest. Am totally stumped as to what on earth I will listen to in the mornings. Nothing appeals. Can't believe how much 'just' a radio show matters to me. It is such a sad day. – JanieRob
I heard the announcement as I was driving to work this morning, I was a wee bit shocked! I kept waiting for Chris to say it was only a joke...but alas, that wasn't the case. I've been listening to the Breakfast Show since about 2004/2005, back when I was still at university, so the show was a big thing for me! I'll miss it, but everything has to end eventually, glad he decided to end it on his own terms, at least. – English Bob
I Just wanna echo most of what's been said on here today. I always knew I would hate the day I found out the show is stopping, but its taken the announcement to show me just how much. Its surprised me how gutted I actually am, I've been thinking about it all day and find myself getting more and more depressed by it!
This next couple of months is gonna be like the last few months of school with your group of friends. You know its ending soon, you know the last day is gonna be a hell of a ride for your emotions, you know you're gonna see some of them again, but you don't know when and if it will be quite the same.
Sad sad day. I've grown up with the team and like so many here, I want to say a MASSIVE thankyou to Chris and the team(past and present) for bringing fun and happiness through all my good and bad times! - colinho
