Massive RTE 2FM change coming as The 2 Johnnies take over Jenny Greene's Drivetime slot

The 2 Johnnies will be taking over Jenny Greene's Drivetime slot in a massive shake-up to the RTE 2FM schedule.

And the culchie comedians say they are are "absolutely buzzing to be leaving life in the fields" for the new show set to entertain "the farmers, the sandwich makers and the chicken roll eaters".

2FM said The 2 Johnnies show “will serve up banging tunes, good craic and great new segments to keep listeners entertained weekdays" and "will be solving problems from getting the shift on a Friday night, to when to change the oil on a tractor".

The pair said: “We are incredibly excited to be joining 2FM. We're buzzing like an old fridge. 2FM is a monster station, with such history and we'll be following in the footsteps of giants.

“It's uncharted waters for us, but we look forward to trying not to crash every day. We're going to try stuff; it won't always run smoothly, but you won't want to miss it.

“We can only hope that people will be talking about us in years to a good way.

“This show is gonna be for the man in the van, the parents minding kids eating the light switches off the wall, the students pretending to study, those laying blocks or curling locks.

“For listeners who are on their commute home, or if they're home alone, walking the dog, or out for a jog.

“For the farmers, the sandwich makers, the chicken roll eaters, those in the truck, the bus, the car or working from home commuting to the kitchen.

“From the lads drinking tay in Mountmellick to the women in Rathdowney wondering where the outlet centre went - this show is for everyone."

Experienced DJ Jenny will be creating her own new show that will air from Sunday to Thursday from 10pm on the station, called ‘The Greene Room’.

"I’ve been incredibly lucky to present on daytime radio for the last seven years," Jenny said last week.

"Radio became a lifeline for us all over the last two years. At a time when we were all feeling very disconnected from friends and family, being able to connect with people and provide some light relief during a very dark time has been both an honour and a privilege.

"I joined 2FM in 2007 as a specialist music DJ and I have been given the opportunity to return to my first love and passion, which has always been music.

"The Electric Disco will continue as normal every Saturday and I’m really excited to be given this new and exciting opportunity to showcase many different genres of music that I love."
