    Shirley Eaton was a popular actress; Susan Franks a TV presenter; Bunny Lewis a record producer; Frank Weir a musician/musical director.

    PFTP 240163
    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.
    J D Palmer, Manchester 19

    PFTP 140263
    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.

    Times editorial, 231261
    The be-laurelled ten change at a scampering pace. No number can hope for an annual sovereignty, and the survival of a song depends on a disc in the home, the café and the youth club. The nation has become a Juke Box Jury with one verdict rapidly succeeding another.
