Seeing as we will soon be in-between breakfast shows once again, I thought we could take a look back at the last time this was the case - and Scott Mills brought us Radio 1's shortest running breakfast show ever!

They're a really good listen, but it really shows how much Radio 1 changed post-2012. Compared to Moyles who finished the previous week, Scott played A LOT of music, but by today's standards it really wasn't that much. The whole thing sounds a lot freer and less formatted than it does today. 

But the first show especially makes you realise how weird and unprecedented it was for Chris Moyles to not be doing the breakfast show for the first time in many people's listening memory (including mine).

Have a listen to some/all of them and share your thoughts here!

N.B. This was also the point at which Chris used to stay in a youth hostel near Radio 1 :D

Thanks for uploading these, currently listening to Monday's and looking forward to listening to the rest of them. IMO the playlist sounded a lot better back then - more pop and indie and less 1xtra grime and rap type stuff. Scott and Chris excellent as always.

I get access to a thing through uni which has basically every BBC show from 2007 onwards and possibly stuff from other channels too. It is bloody brilliant, I'm fully taking advantage, although you're not really supposed to be able to download stuff...

Agreed. That's probably not so much a problem with the playlist than the way the charts have changed over the last six years. Back in 2007/08 there was a tonne of indie rock on the playlist because it was in the Top 40. Almost unimaginable now.

I asked Chris and Scott on twitter if this would be the second shortest breakfast show ever for the next three weeks 

 

I have asked this before, so wonder what will happen Monday, will Scott use his breakfast Jinges, will he use his generic afternoon ones, him and Chris did mention this afternoon they are on breakfast next week and in for "no one" and that they wanted to get their hands on Grimmys photo booth  

I was listening on the radio 1 archive blogspot site to the shows in 2012 and his main jingle was the one that is still used on the podcast now
