Please check out this great article from Steroboard.com. 1 fact worth pointing out is that nearly 900,000 listeners tune in to Jamie’s BBC Radio 2 show, wow!!!
Jazz superstar Jamie Cullum marks a year of his hugely popular BBC Radio 2 show this month while taking over the coveted Chris Evans breakfast show slot for one hour, and for one morning only. The station will be switching the DJs around for just 12 hours on Wednesday 22nd June for 2DAY and Jamie will leave his Tuesday evening slot behind to wake up the nation on the breakfast show and kicks-off 2DAY at 7am with Sony Award winning Simon Mayo for one hour with guests, chat and personally selected music choices as well as a look ahead to the day’s programmes. Jamie Cullum and Simon Mayo will be part of three pairings of DJs that will host Chris Evans’ Breakfast show an hour each from 7am through until 10am.
Jamie says, “I’m really excited about the Chris Evans takeover. I’ve only had my Radio 2 show for a year but already cannot imagine not doing it every week. I’m a novice at this in radio terms so I’m going to have to raise my game for this! The trick is to try and get people not to turn off their radios!”
