Motor mouth. Loud Mouth. Tubby DJ. Overpaid ego.
What is the truth? Who is Chris Moyles? And what does he have to say for himself when he's not on the radio? Who is this man they call 'The Saviour of Radio 1'?
In The Gospel According to Chris Moyles, Chris dissects the world around him and tackles all sorts of subjects; from interviewing the world's most famous celebrities, to trying to find a parking space in his own street.
But you'll also get to meet his family and friends and learn about how he went from teenage DJ on a psychiatric hospital radio show to become the nation's favourite breakfast show DJ on BBC Radio 1. His is a life lived on and off air. And this book is a combination of both. It's funny, honest and gives Chris a platform to talk about his favourite subject... himself.
Ego? What ego?

About the Author
Chris Moyles was born in Leeds in 1974. It was a time when 70s clothes and music was all the rage. The youngest son of two fantastic parents, Chris was encouraged to pursue his ambition to make it as a national radio broadcaster. Many people think this was the sign of two people who loved their son very much. Two people who really wanted to see their son fulfil his childhood dream. It wasn't. They were poor, lazy and greedy.
In 2003 Chris achieved his childhood ambition and was given the biggest show on the station, the legendary Breakfast show. In less than 2 years, he had added over a million new listeners and made the show the number one show in London for 15-24 year olds. This was a first for Radio 1. Currently the show has over 8 million people tuning in every week.
His parents have received nothing.

I fortunately stumbled upon BBC Radio 1 on my satellite car radio about a year ago and immediatley became addicted to the morning show with Chris Moyles, I have an hour and a half commute, so I have plenty of time to listen. When I saw this book on his website I could not wait to get my hands on it, and it is well worth reading! Chris is a very funny guy, very talented in his art, and I laughed out loud several times, as I do in my car while listening to his breakfast show (even though I live in the USA). It is GREAT reading, to find out how he became a radio personality and all of the people that he works with and has met though the years. I highly recommend this book, and even more, I recommend that you get a satellite radio and tune in to the BBC RADIO ONE from 6:30am - 10:00am. And all the other DJ's are great, too. You need to be a fan of British humor!
I read this at the same time as reading the Peter Kay book and was really disappointed. It is nowhere near as good or funny
