Saviour of Radio 1

I've come to the conclusion that either the world has gone mad or I have finally lost touch with the cultural zeitgeist.

Yes, of course, I'm talking about Chris Moyles who is hereafter referred to as "the saviour of Radio 1 (self proclaimed)" as Radio 1 gets the station of the year gong at the Sony Awards. I'm sure its totally deserved.

The R1 breakfast show host won the Entertainment award last night, beating Chris Evans and Jonathan Ross. I suppose that is an achievement. Annoying motor mouth beats two other...

Other than Zane Lowe, is it really all about Moyles at R1? It seems hard to believe. If only the numbers didn't lie (no not the £630,000 salary) I mean the fact that the self-proclaimed saviour has added 1.2m listeners since he took over from Sara Cox and his show records 550,000 downloads. People really do like "the saviour of Radio 1 (self proclaimed)".

Fortunately, like all saviours they one day have to face their god and it turns out that for Moyles that will be Simon Cowell, who "the saviour of Radio 1 (self proclaimed)" will now face when he makes an appearance as part of the line-up on 'Celebrity X Factor'.

Can Moyles sing? It seems unlikely, and you just know that it's going to be bad. Actually according to Cowell (in the Sun), it's going to be worse than bad.

"This show is going to be two words -- 'car' and 'crash'."

This show sounds genius, let's hope Cowell is not overselling it as he is promising to surpass his usual level of meanness and be much tougher.

"I'm going to have fun with these celebrities. We can be very cruel indeed. We need to be that bit harder on them as they are famous already."

Who would have guessed? 'Celebrity X Factor' is going to be a car crash.

I'm talking about Chris Moyle's who

What's a who? And how can I get one like Chris Moyle's?

Actually, reading the rest of your post, it seems like you are talking about Chris Moyle, and not his who at all.
