Christmas may still be just under a month away but for us on The Chris Moyles Show it’s already filling every minute of conversation in the office. Rachel’s working on a very special Radio 1 Christmas Party, I’m working on a Christmas day special and Jocelin’s producing a Boxing Day edition of the show.

Hello there we've just finished the show and are all a bit over excited as we're off to the famous Abbey Road studios today. Sandy Beech (yes that is his name) makes all our music for the show. He's organised a big session with strings, brass and everything to make all the new stuff for next year.
Hello to you, I hope you're having a good Monday morning. Aled and I are busily working in the office, when Aled says 'Who's doing the blog today?'. I totally forgot to give someone the job today, so thought I better do it! So here I am...
Yes you guessed it, it's Friday which usually means that Dave's left to blog as everyone else wants to start their weekend but he's pulled a showbiz strop and walked out early. Aled would have stepped in but he's busy interviewing Dom upstairs. You just know that's for his own personal Podcast so keep an eye on aledhaydnjones.com this weekend! Anyway enough about the team you want to hear about Russell Brand (if not I suggest you stop reading as I've nothing else to talk about)!
Good Morning all, I'd actually left the building. Kind of like Elvis but not really. Then suddenly realised I hadn't written my blog. So I downed the latte and here I am.
We're off to a screening later - not sure if we can talk about it as its not out till January but hey ho! Am sure if its good we'll let you know. Also quite scared today as the Captain is down. That means he'll meet the team. Hmmmmm
So yesterday was fun - Chelsea were really pants - still can't believe that they would play that badly on purpose just to get Barcelona knocked out. Ballack lived up to his name! Thank god Frank will be back against Manchester United at the weekend...
Hello Dominic Byrne here the bald newsreader here we had fun with hair today albeit artificial hair probably imported from Russia.
Not my favourite day of the week I’ll be honest with you.
The tube was that bit more packed today (a rush hour evil that those of us “choosing” to live in London have to put up with) which meant I had the pleasure of being pressed up against some sweaty businessman’s smelly pit.
A pushy woman who I see every morning was just a little bit more pushy this morning (tube-rage is alive and well I assure you) and just about every computerised thing at Radio 1 is shutting down for Christmas or on strike which means everything’s taking twice as long to do today.
Long time no speak, hope all's well with you? Once again I've been left with the end of week blog shift which is never anybody's favourite cos we all want to bugger off for the weekend, but before I go, why don't we have a little one way chat so I can tell you what I've been up to on the cutting edge of showbusiness.
Greetings blogsters or should that be bonjourno. If you've been listening to the show over the last few days you'll know that Aled's been at the helm as I've been off being all producer-like at a radio conference in Rome.
Every day at the end of the show the entire cast list of The Chris Moyles Show gather in the studio to collectively decide on a few show related things. Dave (in addition to his Head of Comedy role) is in charge of the ‘diary’. This is a BBC planner which Dave writes into, noting everything that happens on the show. Typically it’s very detailed on the things he finds funny e.g. Aled or Chelsea bashing, and sketchy on the things he finds less funny e.g. Dave or Everton bashing. Crucially the other time the ‘diary’ entry becomes a bit scarce is when he’s really enjoying the show which unfortunately for us is the bit we really need because most importantly we use the diary to decide on two key things, what goes into the trail, and what makes it into the podcast.
Good Morning Bloggers - its my turn today - apologies if we have been a bit slack with the old blogs this week - its been soo busy for some reason and in our permanently tired and emotional states we kept forgetting who said they'd do it..Anyway its me today! So here we go - its been an eventful week to say the least. Once again the butt of so much stick all to do with football and men..
Hello there blog fans and general people who are interested in reading about the personal and private lives of National radio broadcasters.
Good Friday afternoon to you blogsters…it's Rachel here. Blimey it was hard getting up this morning. Who said holding a karaoke night and then doing the show the next day was a good idea? Oh that was me. Saying that last night was such a laugh. Although I am finding work pretty tough today!
Hello - it's the morning after the Chris Moyles show Karaoke. Wow - what a night!!!!!
So there I was stood on street corners in London freezing my privates off, shouting and bouncing like a clubber on one too many energy drinks, while handing envelopes out to any strangers who approached me. I DO have a strange job.
