Saturday 4 March 1961

Panel: Shirley Abicair, David Gell, Frankie Howerd, Alma Cogan

Abicair at the Albert Hall on Sunday was making her first JBJ appearance. She said, of hit songs: “It seems that repetition is the thing. Repetition, plenty of noise and some sort of gimmick like leaving out words or notes.”

“The Juke Box Jury panel was 100% in favour of 76 Trombones becoming a hit. The morning after the panel of Easy Beat voted 75% against the tune becoming a hit, so any bets?” (The Easy Beat feature was called Going Up”)
