Jo and Dave

It’s the end of an era today at BBC Radio 1 where Jo Whiley bows out from the station in her last ever show this afternoon.
Jay Z has played at her house, Madonna’s co-hosted her show and Jo’s been there at the very beginning of so many core Radio 1 acts … from Plan B to Lily Allen and the Arctic Monkeys to Adele!
To celebrate Jo’s move to Radio 2 the radio star’s Rock star husband Dave Grohl chooses his favourite moments from the times they have met on the show today (Sunday).  Dave told Jo in the interview: “In the last 20 years you’re the one Radio 1 presenter that I’ve always wanted to do interviews with. I’ve probably done more with you than anyone in the world and I can’t imagine that this is really our last interview.” A fitting end to an era – tune into Jo today between 1-4pm.
