Both programmes launched on 14th January 2019
Sara’s show is all about playing great music, interacting with our listeners and letting her personality come through. We’ve devised some silly games for her to play with the listeners and there’s the chance for people to get songs from their first and last gigs played on the radio.
Plus, Sara often likes to involved the team in her social media content, such as this video before her first show…
Meanwhile, Jo Whiley’s show is the home of the best music on Radio 2. In her first show alone we played Ibibio Sound Machine, Beyonce, The Walkmen and Lucy Rose to name just a few. We champion brand new artists and play the best of the best music of the past. We also have regular live sessions, with rising stars Sam Fender and Lewis Capaldi, plus the majestic Hozier, in the first month.
Her show is also the new home of the Radio 2 Book Club every fortnight and special guests from the world of art and culture. It’s a absolute blast.
As Assistant Producer working across both shows, I’ve also acted up to studio produce both shows, as producing Jo Whiley’s outside broadcast from the Hay Festival 2019.
