“The final days of Chris Moyles are upon us. I am not predicting his death, as he once did of John Peel.” Eh? Jane Anderson is quite the strangest writer in the Radio Times. Predicted John Peel’s death? What does that mean? It was going to happen at some point. Anyway, this is his last ever breakfast show, which might be worth listening to if you like that kind of thing, although we won’t be because we only found him interesting and appealing for about six months in 1998, and he should have been moved off this show a long time ago because he was making the station skew far too old with his eighties-obsessed chat, and this station needs to actively aim to repel older listeners. Well, he repelled us, but you know what we mean.

Now we’ve covered the bases, not sure where this run has left to go.
