    Daily Mirror 231167

    “The BBC are to drop JBJ at the end of next month. The show – TV’s longest-running pop programme has been screened without a break for eight years.”

    It is being replaced by a new show, with Alan Freeman and produced by Terry Henebery, who made Simon Dee a household name. According to the paper, Juke Box Jury has been “under criticism for some time. Many people in the music business feel it can make or break a new record too easily.”

    The successor was called All Systems Freeman. Alan Freeman would sit at a control panel, play the latest records, bring in film and live acts and interview performers. Members of the public will get the chance to give their opinions on new records. The 25 minute show will be recorded in Manchester on Wednesdays and transmitted on Friday evenings.

    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.”
