    Chris also made a personal rule of one of them had to be in the studio at all times.
    think he was referring to my refeference.. not that of whatver moyles is doing..

    As ive said before.. fair play to the big bloke for raising money for charity.. did he not go up mount kiliminjaro for charity as well too? I have no problems with his intentions.

    I just dont like his radio presence. Im sure if in real life hes a decent bloke.

    Mr BLobby raised a lot of money for charity one year too Im sure as well..

    As to my first point, I just went by the first hit on Google. A New Record: 175 Hours On Air
    Just came across like you was putting down their hard efforts.

    Well it made me giggle a fair bit, personally. And it was a pretty heroic effort, I've done similar stretches of time at Uni and it does get hard going. If anything they kept their sanity in check remarkably well.

    I noticed the feed go down at about 10:15 after Fearne's offer as well, but I was more annoyed that I didn't see Chris and Dave sign off after all that time than anything!

    Plus, £2.4m is an insane amount of money, and I've been very entertained by it. Something to natter about with all the 6th formers who've been around the office as well, they've all been doing all-nighters for a media studies deadline and we've been lending a hand with the A3 printing and layout, so it's actually been a pleasant couple of days being the hero and having a laugh

    (now roll on the weekend, super saturday, hell yeeeeeeeah)

    sorry if it came across this way.

    Anything/Anybody that raises money for charity is commendable in my book, regardless of my personal opinions of whatever/whover they may be.

    I dont even know what charity they are supporting? Is it the Japan Tragedy?

    Whilst I am sure it is a commendable thing and he raised a lot of money for a good cause - I can only live in hope that it will have put him off radio or indeed any other media for life. Not much chance of that though - although I would definitely contribute to the charity effort if he promised to retire when they raised - say - £10,000000. The man is a foul-mouthed misogynistic idiot, and worst of all, he is BORING.
    (waits for things to be thrown... )

    (BTW - when the 'celebrities' went up Kilamanjaro - they had personal doctors with them and half the time the bearers carried ALL their stuff, and sometimes some of the celebrities themselves! That came from a friend who has just come back from Killi and was talking to all the bearers who thought the whole thing was very funny.)

    I watched quite a bit of the live broadcast on the BBC radio 1 website - I've listened to Chris Moyles for years since he came to radio 1 in the 90's and I'm quite a fan of his broadcasting. Yes he makes ill guided statements sometimes, and he's a bit silly sometimes, but it's all good fun. There were some brilliant moments throughout the 52 hours, some of the video highlights are quality.

    Ditto. I can see why people don't always take to him, but it's his style and he's probably one of a bunch on radio at the moment that knows how radio works and properly present a very entertaining radio show. It's his radio persona and it works. I've not yet to meet him in real life yet but I've heard from people who have met him, he's a very nice chap. I always remember his afternoon shows from the early naughties and became a fan then. I got the sense he loved broadcasting outside of the breakfast hours as the reigns seemed to have been let go a bit.

    Well done to him though! £2,500,000 is a lot to raise in 50 hours! Especially when most of those are £1 texts. I think there's more time for him at Radio 1 yet (regardless the hysteria The Daily Mail seems to live on when reporting he's being replaced every 6 months - I'm sure Radio 1 put out false tips to DM journos to create a bit of publicity because they're gulleble enough to take it!)

    Ah what the heck... Most of the time I like him... Spade's are often just a spade and he lampoons himself regularly..

    But I have to say when they went off the air today I felt there was something of a void... One in my wallet but also the sheer entertainment value from all the different shows, and the energy from everyone who was on the team... Well, it gave me a spring in my step.

    Thing is, so many people can't wait to make some negative comment, do the deed down, find something to turn the glass half empty and honestly it does my head in... Why, oh why, not just enjoy the moment for what it is... Something pretty damned amazing, a true team effort that will make a massive difference.

    Nuff said...

    Not aimed at me I hope - I did say the charity effort was good - but I wonder why he makes such derogatory comments about lots of groups of people, some of whom will probably benefit from Comic Relief money
