On Juke Box Jury, Pete Murray quipped, “If Helen Shapiro’s voice gets any lower, she’ll be giving Paul Robeson a run for his money.”
NME, 1 February 1963
After a year’s careful viewing of JBJ, I should like to nominate the following team to counteract the sort of pretentious drivel which is normally talked on the programme.
Mai Zetterling, Spike Milligan, Elaine Stritch and David Kossoff with Eric Sykes to stand by and David Tomlinson as a sleeping partner.
A consolation prize to Pete Murray who really belongs to us eggheads but doesn’t like to say so.

My team would be Jane Asher as she always knows her mind and sticks to it; Carole Carr because she knows a good song or tune; Steve Race for his technical knowhow; and Sid James because, well, he is just Sid James. As reserves, Judith Chalmers and Jimmy Young.
