A new national radio station has launched this morning as The Chris Moyles Show makes a commercial radio comeback.
After six months of guess work and a two week countdown, the lad line-up of Chris Moyles, Vernon Kay, Dan O’Connell and Johnny Vaughan has finally started.
Moyles was bang on time, at 06.30 with a typical opening theme, reminisce of his eight and a half year stint on BBC Radio 1. The opening audio and the rest of the imaging for the show has been made by Sandy Beech, who created all the audio for The Chris Moyles Show at the BBC via his company, Music4.
There’s a familiar sound to the show already, with Dominic Byrne reading the news and Paul Turner as voiceover. “Well hello again Great Britain” was his first words. I’ve been waiting three years for this”
“That’s right, the money finally ran out”
Lots of industry colleagues have been wishing Global and Chris good luck with the launch over the weekend, and the countdown to the launch expired.
