The Radio DJ answers your questions

This week's lunchtime masterclass is with Jo Whiley, Radio 2 DJ and one of the most recognisable voices in British broadcasting.

Jo was born in Northampton. She studied in Brighton before landing her first broadcasting job as a presenter for WPFM, Radio 4’s youth culture and music show.

She then moved over into TV, initially on satellite, then to Channel 4 as band booker for The Word, giving Britain its first television taste of bands such as Nirvana and Rage Against The Machine.

Jo joined Radio 1 in 1993 and soon became permanent co-presenter of The Evening Session with Steve Lamacq. Four years later she landed her own daytime show, and remained part of Radio 1’s weekday line-up until 2009, when she began a new weekend programme.

Jo has also presented coverage of the Glastonbury Festival on Radio 1, Channel 4 and BBC-TV, and she’s hosted several music programmes for Channel 4.

She currently plays a mix of new music and classic album tracks from Monday to Wednesday on Radio 2, and on Thursday she presents Radio 2’s In Concert, featuring live performances and a round-up of the week’s music gigs.

In her free time, Jo enjoys travelling with her family and is an ambassador for the American Express Preferred Rewards Gold Card, which gives you and your family the freedom to travel on your terms, with its flexible rewards programme. For more info, visit www.amex.co.uk/gold.
