JK and Joel had hoped for Edith's show

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen their interview in the Guardian today, Monday 14th. In it on e of them said they virtually made themselves unemployable at R1 becasue they refused to do any more earlies and wanted Edith's show!

I really wonder what would have happened if Edith had got pregnant earlier or if the reorganisation had been later?

It's true about wanting Edith's show. I had known about this back in August, but didn't want to say anything as it wasn't common knowledge.

I think it's a disappointment it didn't happen, as it was the natural place for them to go next. What is annoying is that we've lost two good DJs for a load of naff celebrity TV personalities, and that was what annoyed me about the schedule changes.

I agree - I mean, Dick and Dom - can it get any worse? I just hope that Greg James gets to present more shows in his career.

I think JK & Joel thought they were still on Radio 1 yesterday, as I heard them say "we're on weekday early mornings.... oh no we're not any more".

I heard them on Virgin Radio yesterday, discussing whether it's 'dancing' (northern pronunciation) or 'dancing' (southern way) on ice, then concluding the southern way was 'posh'. Better than Dick and Dom, but I did change the station because I like to hear music, not DJs rambling on for ages.

kinda ironic they left since they could have taken over from Edith when she gos on maternity leave in the spring,and now theyre stuck on at weekends on Virgin. Some people are just unlucky! :|

ps Edith is on her todd till april while her boyfriend is on tour in the states and she's stuck in London doing her radio one show- how long will she want that sort of situation to continue i wonder.I would be surprised if she returns to a 5 day a week show after having the baby,and she may not return to radio one at all.

Come on can you seriously imagine Edith not coming back to R1 at all?

Unless her boyfriend is a potential millionaire, how on earth would she cope without her salary?

I'd be surprised if she carries on with daytimes..(unless they find her another partner like Colin who could effectively job-share with her) Id imagine she'd go to weekends.

Although Jono if you knew about this in August Id feel quite sorry for Edith...It must be really unsettling to have people wanting her show before shes even left it!

But I also feel for JK and Joel...because I think they were an asset to R1, and it was a shame they felt that they had to leave.

Come on, cut Edith some slack, she's a good presenter and a nice lady. Just because people don't like her show doesn't mean she's bad.
