After such a funny show today, I would say not much! But seriously, I think the fact the show was less well known helped a lot in those days. The fact Chris and Dave could pretty much say what they wanted, without having to worry much about over running or offending people made it more exciting. The fact Chris was so different to anyone else on local radio was also a huge draw - there was so much creativity and effort put into ideas for each show you could tell, e.g True Or False/The Not. That's not to say there isn't now obviously, but I find sometimes the show can get a bit safe and stale. It isn't really a criticism because Moyles is now a lot older, so naturally the show isn't going to be as in-your-face and exciting as it was.
The all male team was good too, Ben and Chris's stories of Dave's desperate attempts to "pull chicks" etc were always brilliant. Likewise Will, Chris and Dave's "mucky video" chats (as an example). With Rachel now in charge you get the feeling sexist talk (to put it bluntly) like that is frowned upon. But obviously it has to be on breakfast, so in a way its understandable - just less risky.
Best show of the year today though. Keep it up!
