Read somewhere today that Peel says in his autobiography that when Chris Moyles first joined Radio 1 he felt like strapping explosives to himself and taking both him and Moyles out. ;)

Can you remember that show the bloater had on TV? It was alike TFI Friday with no bands and no guests. Plus he has a 'great face for radio'. Didn't last long, funnily enough.
