In the begining...
Aaron and Dan met on CMP Radio (v1) in November 2003. Since the beginning Dan has provided special news bulletins for Aaron on his flagship show, The UK's Official Top 20. As Dan lives in Staffordshire and Aaron in Essex this has always been down to the wonders of technology. This is why they just had to change things... Read about all of the shows below then check out the sections for each station from the menu above.
Series 1 (CMP Radio) August 2003
In August 2003 Aaron set out on his travels for Staffs and spent a week staying with Dan. (Just don't ask Aaron about the long distance train journey!) He arrived as a surprised on Dan's Friday evening show. Being Summer holiday time the series of morning shows each day went down well with competitions (complete with prizes) and endless banter. The week went by very quickly and then Aaron was on his travels back down south. The week was so good it wasn't long before there was another series on the way...
Series 3 (CMP Radio) March 2004
From Sunday 28th March 2004 was series 3... this time with a difference. The week began with Dan visiting Aaron in Chelmsford, Essex where he was made to feel at home presenting the Top 20 chart show together and a series of afternoon shows where Matt Tunstill joined in. (Brilliant chance for Aaron to show off his driving when they were still out in McDonalds 15 minutes to being on air!!) Mid-week it was all change and a joint train journey and 150 miles later, Aaron returned with Dan to Staffs. Studio 3 was the scene for the last part of the week as the joint shows continued, we even stumbled across Dan's co-presenter Jemma on Friday!
Series 4 (CMP Radio) July 2004
Series 4 ran from Monday 19th July until Saturday 24th July. Aaron spent the week north of Birmingham with Dan. There was a show at 11am each morning with the return of the impossible questions, and the brand new catchphrase competition (see Features page for more). The fun didn't stay in studio 3 though there were a couple of (rather wet) bike rides. Check out the photo gallery for the evidence!
Surprise Show October 2004 (CMP Radio)
Aaron Beadle and Daniel Hoult reunited in an unprepared spontaneous one-off exclusive event known as a 57 minute show!
On Sunday 10th October 2004 we briefly got together for one hour of insults and mayhem. As ever, 1 hour for us was very short but it was a nice surprise while Aaron was "just passing" 150 miles north of his home town! We enjoyed it and we hope you did too.
