Good morning Mr. Stanley,
Ever since the time you did that marathon shift where you filled in for John Laws and then ran your own show as well, I have considered you to be a very likely candidate to take over Lawsie's job when he retires, and this morning you have proven it by being the first 2UE presenter to run in to the studio when he was confirmed as running late.
The last time I recall hearing anything like this was when the late Stan Zemanek was running late and somebody filled in for him for a while…and if I remember correctly Stan hosted some of the show from a mobile phone.
And don't be so sure about there being no spelling tests for radio announcers. I clearly remember you putting your listeners through that torture earlier this year with that agonising spelling competition where you had a whole of heap of illiterate callers ring in and try to spell words. The success rate was about 5%!
Have a great day John. Hopefully today isn't another double shift for you.
