    Of course he would because she is a loudmouth like him.

      She is a loudmouth it’s true but I still prefer Sara Cox to many of them. Simon Mayo is my first choice though. He’s presented drive for years and suddenly has Jo Whiley with him.

    Guessing he will be long gone before December.

    Simon Mayo would be an ideal choice for R2 breakfast.
    He gets rid of the nauseating Jo Whiney, and can re-establish
    himself as a true professional.
    Stick Whiney on overnights where she truly belongs!
