"Radio 2, come up and get me"

Life imitates throwaway lines: In order to plug the gap caused by Jonathan Ross being re-educated, Danny Baker is joining Radio 2. For a month, but perhaps someone might spot that it might make sense for him to be there permanently.

He's being paired with Zoe Ball - if we've learned one thing from Brand and Ross's adventures, it's that you don't need to worry, providing you have two presenters on a programme. This actually sounds quite promising; Baker works well with a partner and Zoe's best work comes when she's talking with, rather than to. It almost makes you hope that the Mail On Sunday gets Ross suspended for another six months.

Don't get your hopes up. I give it one week until the Mail on Sunday lead with

'BBC'S VILE TURMOIL JOKE
The BBC faces fresh controversy after broadcasting a sick stunt in which DJ Danny Baker MOCKED victims of turmoil. The cockney presenter was heard LAUGHING as a guest daubed photographs with the word 'Turmoil' on his Radio 2 show. But the act distressed several victims of train-crashes, earthquakes and E-coli outbreaks who we contacted, each of whom were DISTRAUGHT that the BBC was making FUN of their own personal trauma (cont'd p.2,3,4,5,6,7,8)

That could be interesting. I did hear Zoe Ball doing the weekend breakfast on 6Music a few months ago and I remember thinking she was pretty good.

It's rather confusing as to why she did that stint really. I remember another presenter (Jon Holmes perhaps) being slightly bemused by it. Perhaps she approached the BBC to get her name on the stand in presenter list, and they gave her a show the nobody listened to just to see if she's still got it?
