Feature on David Jacobs, NME, 25 December 1959:
Juke Box Jury is excellent musical entertainment for the whole family. And it’s done far more for pop music than most people think. The records we play are more or less all made with the teenage market in mind. But on Juke Box Jury, viewers have seen adults voicing approval of the very same discs – the adults being the panel, of course. The net result is that the Jury has encouraged people to be far more tolerant towards pop discs. It has also stopped a lot of parents sneering at pop music and made them realise that it is an everyday part of their children’s lives.
