Getting to know JoJo
Hirsty's Daily Dose's JoJo spills the beans on Hirsty and Danny, tells us her biggest mistake and even confesses to her guilty pleasure!
Name? JoJo – also known as ‘The JoJo’
Age? Old enough to know better!
Where are you from? Leeds. Born and bred.
The reason you come to work in a morning? How else would I spend my mornings? Watching Daybreak? I don’t think so. Being paid to basically have a laugh, take the mick out of my colleagues and make tea is not a bad way to make a living. I can think of worse ways to earn crust.
Who would your ideal guest be? (Can be living or dead) S o many it’s hard to say. Leigh Francis aka Keith Lemon because he is from Leeds and would be an absolute scream to chat to. I doubt I’d be able to talk to him for laughing though. Gok Wan – cos he’s so openly gay and fabulous. And Mick Jagger, mainly to ask him if he remembers dancing with me at a party at his house in Richmond many moons ago. I made some memorable moves so who knows.
Which celebrity do you reckon you look or act like? People say that I look like Grace Jones because of my hair and sound like Sue Pollard, but I apparently act more like Mariah Carey – pure Diva!
What rules do you live your life by? Treat others how you would like to be treated yourself. Manners cost nothing. And what goes around comes around.
If you died and came back as an animal what would it be? A Zebra because their coats are so magnificent. Either a Zebra or a Koala bear. Apparently they sleep for around 18 hours a day and eat for the other 6. After many years of doing breakfast radio, I could do with a sleep in!
What's been your biggest mistake? Trying to answer this question. We all make mistakes – the question is do we learn from them?
Your opinions on your colleagues?
Where do I start? Danny is like a funny little brother, you know, clever, opinionated and a bit annoying at times, and as for Hirsty, well he’s like a sister to me! He’s pretty unique, a total boy/girl. On one hand he’s dead girly, talking about facials and shoes and on the other hand he’s all about boy stuff, like gadgets and cars. I like that.
What’s your guilty pleasure? Dame Shirley Bassey. I have around 29 of her albums on vinyl. I like nothing better than to sing along at the top of my voice when there’s no one around. It’s a private thing.
Most embarrassing track on my iPod? iPod? I’m still using a cassette Sony Walkman from the late 80’s. It’s a sport version in yellow. It’s waterproof. My first love, Thomas Holmes bought it for me. We were going steady. I don’t believe any of my personal music is embarrassing. It all relates to a time and a place and a lot of memories. Oh – apparently I do have an iPod on my iPhone, Hirsty has just informed me. I’m such a technophobe!
What song lyric best describes you? Ooo – this is a tough one. I’d like to say, ‘Young, Gifted and Black’, by Bob and Marcia, but only one of those statements is true. And I’d like to say, ‘She’s a Lady’, by Tom Jones, but I’m not entirely sure I live up to that lyric either. So how about ‘Foxy’, by Jimi Hendrix.
Favourite gig you’ve ever been to? Daft Punk at Temple Newsam! Incredible! Nuff said.
What’s the best thing about having your own show on Capital? I don’t, I have to share the airwaves with those two numpty’s, Hirsty and Danny! To be honest I like being part of a team. I’d be rubbish on my own.
What’s your favourite place in Yorkshire? The Birdyard vintage clothes shop for dresses, and The Sunshine Bakery for the to die for cupcakes! Washed down with a cup of tea out of china cup. And I love taking my son to The Yorkshire Wlildlife Park too.
From my wardrobe you can have… Nothing! I need it all!
Facebook is… I a world I tried to refrain from, but you have to get with the times. I found some dear old friends on there and made a few new ones. I’m not a heavy user, but I do like to have a nosey from time to time. I think we all have a voyeuristic nature. And it’s free!
Why didn’t you ask me about... Why people would want to listen to our show? Well in answer to that excellent question – because we’re like a dysfunctional family, sometimes we get on famously and sometimes it’s quite the opposite. And given the choice out there, why not?
