David Jacobs to Tom Sloan 291267: “JBJ was a good friend and although I’m glad to be moving on, good friends are hard to come by and not unnaturally I will miss it and all it meant to me. One thing JBJ provided, apart from the entertainment, was a patch of sanity in a rather odd world of pop. Just occasionally, some very sensible things were said, but most important, it was an enormous amount of fun. I hope the viewers will miss it as much as I will.”
David Jacobs did miss JBJ but he had already started presenting Any Questions. He was with that programme 17 years. “They said they’d give me a dinner. I said that once I’d had the knife in my back, I didn’t want the fork too.”
