    Neville Wortman: “The panel only heard what was played on the programme. We only played a minute of a record but if a record was rather unusual, we might choose something other than the beginning. The Righteous Brothers’ You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ would be an example of that. You want to give the panel a real flavour of what the music is all about. It’s like being a good publisher – they can tell from the first few lines of an unsolicited manuscript if it is something they want.”

    Audience Research Report
    Audience was 22%, and 9% watching ITV
    Reaction index of 51 (average 54 for series)
    “Juke Box Jury appealed very much more to viewers under 20 but at the same time reaction to this particular edition was not unduly enthusiastic.”
    Teenagers thought that there were too many records of a type that would never make the charts. (Actually, untrue in this instance!)
    The teenagers had little time for anyone not of their generation or musical persuasion.
    The most popular personality was the one member who openly admitted her ignorance of pop music – Peggy Mount. Viewers admired her honesty and found her likeable and forthright.
    Pete Murray disliked for his “stupid fooling around” and “disastrous attempts at humour”.
    Dusty was criticised for her “inarticulate mumblings” and her “quite grotesque makeup”.
    David Healy didn’t make an impression either way.
    The majority found the ‘candid camera’ shots of the audience a most attractive feature.

    Why – Frankie Avalon (HMV)
    The Big Hurt – Miss Toni Fisher (Top Rank)
    Love Is the Only Thing – Tennessee Ernie Ford (Capitol)
    Oh Melancholy Me – Passions (HMV)


    “Disgraceful! All American records on Saturday’s ‘Juke Box Jury’. Surely the producer Russell Turner should have noticed this great injustice – hardly respectful to his boss, Eric Maschwitz, former Songwriters’ Guild chairman, who greatly champions British tunes.” NME’s Alley Cat, 8 January 1960
    The panel (including that long-haired beat boy Gilbert Harding) discussed the Playmates, Ricky Nelson, Kitty Kallen, the Bell Sounds, Frankie Avalon (‘Why’), Miss Toni Fisher, Tennessee Ernie Ford and the Passions. Looking at the BBC’s logs, it is absurd that the panel were asked to comment on Kitty Kallen’s ‘If I Give My Heart to You’ after just 30 seconds.
    Gilbert Harding was described by NME as “television’s supreme critic and avowed hater of rock ’n’ roll.” When he was doing a DJ stint on the Light Programme, he once had to play Great Balls of Fire, but took it off halfway through and said, “That’s enough of that rubbish.”
    Carolyn Townshend was one of England’s most beautiful debs. Became Lady Carolyn Capellini; married Antonio Capellini, 30, Italian landowner. She had been a TV scriptwriter.
    Paul Carpenter & Peggy Cummins were actors.

    Little Angel – Eddie Cochran (London) voted a hit

    We Told You Not To Marry – Titus Turner (London)
    Think Love – Kathy Linden (Felsted)
    Summer Set – Acker Bilk (Columbia)
    The Years Between – Maureen Evans (HMV)


    Eddie Cochran’s ‘Little Angel’ voted a hit on ‘Juke Box Jury’. Why were they playing the B-side? David Jacobs was so astonished that Gilbert Harding liked it that he gave him the record.

    Lionel Bart was a song-writer who had just achieved massive success with Tommy Steele, and shows such as Fings Ain’t What They Used T’Be and Oliver; Shirley Anne Field was an actress; Anita Prynne an actress and TV interviewer.

    I Don’t Regret A Thing – Chris Martin (HMV)


    Teenage panel replaced by South African DJ Barry O’Donoghue.

    Worst-ever ‘Juke Box Jury’ panellist, Patricia Bredin last Saturday – NME’s Alley Cat, 29 January 1960. Shack’s only appearance, a leading juke box operator.

    Catherine (Katie) Boyle was a TV announcer and presenter who famously hosted early editions of the Eurovision Song Contest; Patricia Bredin an actress; Alan Freeman a DJ (assuming this was not Alan Freeman the Decca Records executive); Cyril Shant, who with Gordon Marks, had founded the Phonographic Equipment Company in 1958. It specialized in Juke Boxes!

    Russell Turner is responsible for the choice of records and discusses them with David Jacobs. David Jacobs: “Sometimes we include discs we know are bad just to see the reaction of the panel. It’s a thing I wouldn’t dare do in my Saturday night, Light Programme series, Pick Of The Pops.”

    On 10 February, EMI issued their last 10-inch 78 rpm single. It was ‘Royal Event’ backed by ‘Rule Britannia’, which was used as the theme for Daniel Farson’s Guide To The British.

    Eric Sykes on Reveille Rock: “That would work. I would have to get up to turn the darn thing off.”
    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.

    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.”

    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.

    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.

    Why do members of the JBJ panel have to be so sarcastic to each other? This spoils an otherwise enjoyable programme.
    Miss B Bellis (16), Holywell

    PFTP 070363
    Could we have some pictures of pretty girls? The concentration seems to be on expressionless head-nodders. Often the subjects chosen are bizarre in styles, ranging from near beatnik to femme fatale, while others are undeniably plain. Where is the warmth, sparkle and vivacity that we associate with youth. Surely there are pretty girls in the JJB audience who could charm our eyes, even though our ears are suffering.

    Producer Neville Wortman: “I went for all sorts of people. I went for Maria Callas at one point and her manager was horrified – there was a terrible silence at the end of the phone. He said, “You might just as well ask her to stand on her head.”

    Producer Neville Wortman: “Steve Race was really good, he was an expert and could speak eruditely. Nancy Spain who wrote for the Daily Express was brilliant. She lived with Sheila Van Damn and they were killed in an air crash. Bunny Lewis wasn’t one of my choices but he certainly knew about the scene. Really we were looking for attractive personalities who could relate to an audience. Henry Mancini was a regular guest. He was marvellous and could speak knowledgably. Annie Ross was very good.”
