The Big Drive Home - Day 1

Greg James | 20:30 UK time, Monday, 30 June 2008

Welcome along.
Had a lovely time covering Scott's show for the first day today, so good to be on during daylight hours. Absolutely incredible to be able to pop out for a couple of pints after the show too. Scott has the best hours ever.
Anyway, got through lots of stuff today on the show including a brand new feature which doesn't really have a name but its where I asked you to text in your favourite song in the world ever to 81199 and played a 30 second countdown clock and after that, I froze the text message screen and played the top three songs in the inbox. 
Here's a video of what happens in the studio during the show:
 And...Here's a screenshot of THAT frozen inbox!
