Former colleague Dionne Stax about cooperation: ‘No click at all’


Two years ago, Dionne and Toine were given the task of making a lunch show for NPO Radio 1. The idea was that the show was a bit of it The world goes on of the radio, but that didn’t quite work out. The lunch show did not get very good reactions and Dionne in particular had to suffer. After a year, the presenter decided to switch because of her busy TV work and Toine was actually happy with that, it turns out.

The presenter says that he finds it much more fun to make radio with Mischa Blok. “Dionne and I are completely different characters. They had hoped that we would complement each other well, but if you are going to make a duo program, you have to make sure that one plus one is much more than two. That you get the best out of each other. and a kind of chemistry is created.”

Unfortunately, that chemistry was not there. “That was just very difficult. We had far too little common ground and presented each other staccato. That is a huge change since March 1 with Mischa Blok. Then you really notice that one plus one is much more than two.” According to Toine, much nicer conversations arise with Mischa. “That there are one-twos towards a subject.”

According to him, there was a reason that this did not work out with Dionne. “Dionne is a personality, I have also built up a certain name and sometimes people are also quite interested in what we are experiencing. Only we had very little need to tell each other that in the broadcast. And when the brakes are applied, then there’s no going back.”

Precisely because of this, the lunch show eventually became a very reserved program, which was not the intention. “That was actually the case. Dionne also had quite a few recordings for TV, also for AVRO-TROS. That broadcaster was therefore fully aware of it, but at Radio 1 there were some complaints from: ” It is a duo program, but very often there is only one.'”

Dionne probably won’t mind the criticism. The presenter has been over the moon with her new love DJ Steve for a while.
