The show consisted of Moyles' unique take on the day's news, interactive fun and games with competitions such as 'Dancing Letters', and celebrity guests dropping in for a pint and a chat.
Chris Moyles talks about this show in The Difficult Second Book. In it he says how after a show he had a conversation with the producer Chris Evans.
