    Obviously I’m joking about the misogyny.

    Not about Wiley though, she’s absolutely shithouse...
    'Cause I know that you know that we know they don't know what's going on.

      I'm not keen on the changes to the show, (always liked Simon Mayo's Drivetime programme and I'm disappointed they've binned it) but she has a name, Jo Whiley, and has been a stalwart of BBC radio for a long time. To refer to her vaguely as "a female disk jockey" seems more than a little condescending to me.
      When i was told that a new person was being injected into the program i thought that Joe Whiley was a member of Simons team it was a couple of days later when i was informed that Jo was in fact not a member of the team, if Lisa Tarbuck became a team member then no problem for me

      Jute?
      The houses were Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Vikings.

      Oh dear. A serious thread about the demise of the best show on R2 and it's been hijacked by all sorts of diversions. It was a great show ruined in the name of political correctness to meet the latest targets to put more women on the air. No doubt the controller who did it will be praised for his bravery rather than disciplined for rank stupidity while the ratings plummet.
      I hope you meet someone your height, so you can see eye to eye with someone as small as you!

      Didn't realise that. Billy Idol did too, but three years ahead of Mayo.
      Didn't Billy Idol go to Durrington High? Or am I confused....

      To be fair to her, Jo Whilley is the best female dj on radio 2 but, theres not a huge amount of competition.
      Zoe Ball,and Sara Cox, are both very average, and I can't even listen to Lisa Tarbucks trailers ,she annoys me so much, she's even worse than Jeremy bloody Vine. ( And not as funny as her Dad, who's about as funny as toothache himself)

      There was a Durrington Tech not a High School. Worthing High School though was in Durrington, by the station at least it was when I went there. Apparently same time as Simon Mayo but I was in a different class to Jutes, Vikings. Hope that clears it up. Don't remember Billy Idol either.
      Jutes had a very good 5 a side football team with the year's best footballer 'Chalky' White, Vikings had a good rivalry with them. Enjoyed playing them.

      Jo Whiley is brilliant at what she does.
      An actual dj that knows about the music she plays, and is cool in a way that doesn't detract from herself.
      There's too many so called djs, that rely so much on their egos.
