    Commenting on panel games.
    On What’s My Line and Juke Box Jury. “Both of them are conducted by ringmasters of exceptional professional competence. Eamonn Andrews and David Jacobs seem impervious to the temptations which beset many other quiz masters. They reveal no mannerisms, they exercise an easy authority and although they radiate good humour, they never indulge in that deadly sin of broadcasting bonhomie.”

    Feature, Functions Of The Captive Audience
    The intrusive nature of the studio audience is mitigated by television, and there are programmes, indeed, of which it could be said that audience participation is a paramount element. It can be said, for instance, of Juke Box Jury, an old favourite distinguished by some brilliant camera work. As the record is played the camera picks out the unformed face of a teenager mesmerised by the beat, the pointed shoe tapping out the rhythm, the hand of a lover seeking that of his mate. Without the unconscious cooperation of its fans, Juke Box Jury would lose three-quarters of its fascination.

    Pete Maclaine: “I wrote Yes I Do in a Merseybeat style and it was voted a Miss largely because Kenneth Williams didn’t like it. Keith Fordyce thought it was okay. We knew it was going to be on and we were working in Prestatyn that night. We ran round the corner and knocked on the first house, explained who we were and that our record was going to be played. They asked us what it was called and they told us that it had already been on and had been voted a Miss, so we went to the pub.”

    Valerie Harbottle from Newcastle-upon-Tyne: Disc 140963
    “What on earth do these programme planners think they are playing at? For weeks and weeks I’ve looked forward to seeing Adam Faith on Juke Box Jury and Thank Your Lucky Stars and now he is to appear on each programme on the same day. Whose ridiculous idea was that?
    “What makes it more infuriating is to find that his appearance on Thank Your Lucky Stars was deliberately brought forward a week. It seems that we Faith fans are being got at.”

    Should professional artists have only part of their records played on Juke Box Jury – to be criticised by an unqualified panel?

    Producer Neville Wortman: “I used to see the guests first to make sure that they had an interest in music per se. If they didn’t, there was no point in having them on the panel at all. I remember Rupert Davies brought a different slant on it. We were always trying to cater for the largest possible audience and not just a teenage audience. The audience for Thank Your Lucky Stars was mostly teenagers. The BBC has mostly broadcast programmes for the family.”

    Letter from Beatrice Chalmers, Falkirk in Record Retailer: “Through your columns, may I, a record assistant, appeal to David Jacobs to put Juke Box Jury on a little later on Saturday evenings. You see, throughout the week, we are asked for records by the buying public but every often the only clue is ‘Three of them voted it a miss’ or some actress thought it was ‘smashing’ or it has ‘girl’ or ‘moon’ or ‘twist’ in the title. We want to to hear the programmes too but we do work for our wages and the boss pays us to serve customers until 6pm eery Saturday.” (041062)

    Eager though I am to watch JBJ, it would make a change to have an all-teenage panel once in a while, not necessarily consisting of stars.
    Many female panel members seem to be in a perpetual daze, unable to make any pertinent comment. Why not come down to earth?
    It must be remembered that it is teenage opinion which makes or breaks these songs.
