I used to love Habitat in the 80s'
The 5-minute Interview: JK and Joel, DJs and TV presenters
Since meeting at Hull's Viking FM in 1996, DJs JK and Joel have proved a resilient double act, hosting a variety of television programmes as well as their own show on Radio 1. Now they can be heard on Virgin Radioon weekend mornings
If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...
Joel: Watching horse racing or wrestling.
A phrase I use far too often...
JK: I'm tired; I need more sleep.
Joel: That is just shocking.
I wish people would take more notice of...
JK: Wildlife. We need to do something about the destruction of habitat.
Joel: I used to love Habitat in the 80s.
The most surprising thing that happened to me was...
JK: Getting a prime time Saturday evening show.
Joel: Getting a second series.
A common misperception of me is...
JK: That I'm fat with a beard. That's what listeners think all radio presenters look like.
Joel: That I'm gay.
I'm good at...
JK: Sleeping and football.
Joel: Saying yes.
I'm bad at...
JK: Ice skating. Spelling.
Joel: Saying no.
The ideal night out is...
JK: A country pub, log fire and Sambuca. London is just too expensive.
Joel: An all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet for a fiver.
In moments of weakness I...
JK: Need a big vodka.
Joel: Need a bigger vodka.
You know us as radio DJs but in another life we'd be...
JK: Working in a cafe.
Joel: Owning that cafe.
The best age to be is...
In a nutshell, my philosophy is this...
JK: Do something every day which you wouldn't normally do.
Joel: Never turn down work as one day it won't be there.
