I think that as the only Radio 1 DJ to have sung jingles and play the GTS pips it's fairly conclusive though


Would the pips be for the Tedious Link? That was fab...

I thought Moyles was quite openly a jingle anorak - didn't he have some trouble for playing the mid 80's Jam package when Radio 1 didn't have a license for them at one point?

Yep - Moyles is definitely an anorak, which is great because he obviously really loves radio and, specifically, really appreciates the history of Radio 1.

There have been many occasions when Chris has talked about prefade/compressors/cartwall etc on air, and then tries to cover up his own anorakkyness by saying something like "one for all the anoraks, there" immediately after. I'd say he's in denial...!

The 5 Mim Jingle Chris Moyles used as the launch of his breakfast show was FANTASTIC!

That is an AMAZING intro! The best implementation of a sung jingle I've ever heard - local radio take note!

Because he asked me for copies of them, and it's One BBC Very Happy


No offence intended Dan but why did he ask you rather than Network pres in London? Did they say no?

The problem is that Network pres doesn't really exist in the way it did a few years ago, and if's difficult to work out exactly who "owns" things like the BBC ONE symbols. I'm not sure whether these days you'd need to approach the Controller's office, Television, Marketing, or BBC Broadcast - and if the latter, do you speak to Media Planning, Creative Services, Playout, etc? In such a big organisation it can take ages to go through the official channels, so if you need something in a hurry it's often easier to ask a friend of a friend.
