Jay and the Doctor are the on-air names of Australian radio duo Jason Whalley and Lindsay McDougall, on radio station Triple J.
Best known as members of punk band Frenzal Rhomb, they performed occasional late-night shifts on Triple J until 2004. They temporarily replaced Chris Taylor and Craig Reucassel for six weeks in late 2004 while The Chaser Decides covered the federal election.
On 26 November 2004, Jay and the Doctor were announced as the hosts of the Breakfast Show in 2005. The announcement was highly built up by incumbent hosts Adam & Wil. Prior to their employment at the station, their music was banned for a time by Triple J after Frenzal Rhomb criticised the station on air for playing the "same 40 songs".
Myf Warhurst joined Jay and the Doctor on breakfast in January 2007, to form Myf, Jay and the Doctor. Warhurst announced on 10 October 2007 that she would leave Triple J and co-host a new show with comedian Peter Helliar for Triple M Melbourne.

Famous quotes containing the words doctor and/or jay:
“The best thing about Sassy Seats is that grandmothers cannot figure out how they work and are in constant fear of the childs falling. This often makes them forget to comment on other aspects of the childs development, like why he is not yet talking or is still wearing diapers. Some grandmothers will spend an entire meal peering beneath the table and saying, Is that thing steady? rather than, Have you had a doctor look at that left hand?”
—Anna Quindlen (20th century)
“Wherever you see a man who gives someone elses corruption, someone elses prejudice as a reason for not taking action himself, you see a cog in The Machine that governs us.”
—John Jay Chapman (18621933)
