Today (and yesterday), I got up at 6.25. I think we all know that is because of Chris Moyles’ last two shows.
I won’t lie, I welled up yesterday, while driving to work (not good on the A3), today I’ve been alright, but there’s still 20 minutes to go at the time of writing.
To have a show that runs 8years is one thing. But Chris’ show is unique in so many ways. A master of the zoo format, and with a personality that engages everyone, whether you like his attitude or not. Their words at the end of their last show were right. Think of everything that they have done in 8 years. Mostly the same team, always together, and always Chris’ way!
Aled’s story coming from Hospital Radio to to the Radio 1 Breakfast show, is a story that should remind everyone. Never give up on your dreams, and aspirations. Also more proof that a well trodden path between Student Radio and Hospital Radio can sometimes lead it’s way to the BBC.
Somewhere on the 4th Floor in Leicester Square’s Global Radio, a lovely girl called Chloe Gunning today has her last shift working on Heart Breakfast with Jamie and Harriet.
Chloe’s been working there for 5 years. She’s worked bloomin’ hard. She’s been on the Heart Breakfast production team for most of all that time. Plus has produced Emma Bunton’s Saturday Show for the past year (and a bit?).
Chloe was the person who got me into Heart 2 and half years ago. She was the one that took me under her wing (I had to duck down), and I learnt so much.
Chloe – thank you, good luck on new ventures, and I’m sure that the 4th floor won’t be the same.
// End – of a bit of a mess of a blog post. Moyles’ show got me a bit emotional.
