Rob DJ's Monday Night Pub Quiz

September 07, 2017 6:00 AM ‐ GamesRadio
As BBC Radio 1 celebrates its 50th birthday this month, I thought I'd recreate one of the station's most memorable features and get busy with the quizzy. A special anniversary edition of 'Rob DJ's Monday Night Pub Quiz' as originally heard on Chris Moyles' show.

Snizzle ma quizzle, you mother! In case you aren't familiar with the game basically Moyles' friend "Rob DJ" hosts a pub quiz in Leeds, England. Moyles and his team would answer some of the quiz questions on air the next morning.

When I say "pub" you say "quiz". Pub... Did I hear "quiz?" Well in this anniversary edition of the quiz, the questions were all originally read out on The Chris Moyles Show. The multiple choice answers for each question are all real answers given by Moyles and his team during the quiz.

The rules are simple. Rob's answers are final, so even if you don't think they're right, you'll only get the points if you have exactly what he has on his answer sheet.

Now we don't want any cheating, so before we start, turn your texts off and make sure your phones are out of your area.
