Rolling Eyes

More shout outs and tweeting ? Rolling Eyes

More specialist shows would be better.

Jo is really really good , her show is always really laid back with just the right music. Craig Charles is a good stand in, he's very good too.

I like JO Whiley too. I often listen to her when driving in the evenings and I like the fact that she takes her music and musicians seriously. Yes, rather too much "social media" stuff but its integration and interaction is BBC programming policy now so she can't really be blamed.

No, just today I think. Steve's back tomorrow.

(See, I'm the last remaining daytime listener!)

I've been listening as well. I quite like Jo Whiley, who is much better in the slot than the tiresome incumbent.

I thought her "interview" with The Edge from U2 was awful.

I've always distrusted the woman after she (apparently) said she would never play pre 1980 music.
It certainly showed in her choice of oldies over the last two days on the SW show, most of it 90s music, though all of it was actually very good.

I like her because her microphone style is so much easier to listen to than some other R2 presenters. I didn't hear her chat with The Edge but I'm assuming it wasn't that good because she wasn't that interested in what he had to say, and I can't say I blame her!!

Her conversation with 'The Edge' wasn't helped by the fact that it was over the phone rather than face to face

I quite like Jo but I have to agree with Schiz that she appears to believe that music only started around 1980

Having said that I do prefer her presence in the afternoon rather than the very boring SW

Richard Allinson Sara Cox or Chris Tarrant would be even better though Very Happy
