“Chris, Dave, Dom, Tina, Aled, Matt Fincham, and this week’s allocated Unit Assistant…” An entire three-and-a-half-hour show, boiled down to just the jingles and other imaging – opening with the fantastic cheesy song, and ending with the closing “National Radio One!” Highlights here have to be the beautiful strings-only version of one of the beds, and the jingle for Aled’s Summer Surgery: “Chlamydia and itchy bits, they are not much fun: so why not tell the whole wide world, here on Radio 1?”
“Remember when you heard this song, many years ago…” One of the best things Moyles ever did was bring back The Golden Hour on Friday mornings – a beautifully put together hour of radio, featuring loads of old Radio 1 jingles. These weren’t just plastered over the show purely for cheap nostalgia value, but actually used properly – of particular note here is the beautiful transition into ‘Drinking in L.A.’ Just great-sounding radio, of a type which most DJs have forgotten… or just not allowed to do.
“But Moylesy’s back so thank the Lord it’s not that Dr. Fox…” A montage of all the different styles of out-of-news jingles from The Chris Moyles Show between 2004-2012, in order of broadcast. Oddly (in terms of the music tracks rather than the lyrics) I think the penultimate one is by far the worse – but the very last one, used between 2010-12, is quite possibly the best.
