I love Radio 1 and I love Chris Moyles. But man, just stop talking for 3 seconds!

Sirius also has a promo it plays on top of the pips on the World Service.

It annoys me.

I know what you mean. In this instance, I wonder if it's a delay in the digital broadcast.

If it's that he can't stop talking, then, he's not alone. There's a guy on our local radio station that is atrocious at timing and often speaks over the tracks. I don't believe he has any idea. I turn the radio off when his show is on, which is two and a half hours of agony, imho. Worse than just the three seconds!

I have lots, but I enjoy having a human mix my music sometimes, and the BBC is still one of the best.

No, I'm pretty sure it's just Moyles. ;-) I actually have to listen to him when no one's home, because the rest of the house can't stand him.

The Sirius promo crashing might be the delay. Interestingly, I'm told that the delay from BBC transmission to Sirius receiver can sometimes be up to 8 seconds!

At last Charlie boy has found something he can do properly, a new career beckons while he's waiting for the old dear to pop her clogs.

I can't stand Chris Moyles don't get me wrong I don't listened to Radio one (the station is to much up its own orifice for me), but at various times he features in advertisements on the BBC TV channels promoting his radio show or some half baked charity event and I am afraid the fellow comes across as a complete oaf.

If you want music without interruptions and minimal DJ chatter try Radio Caroline it is on the Sky transponder and on-line.

they even mention it in the wiki.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenwich_Time_Signal#Crashing_the_pips:
BBC Radio 1 has a more laid-back approach with the pips, the most notable example being The Chris Moyles Show ...
