    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.

    You Are Here – Carvelles (Fontana) MISS 3-1


    P J Proby: “When Hold Me came out, I was sure it was going to be a Miss on JBJ because Dick Haymes was on the panel. I’d done a rock version of his beautiful ballad and when I shook hands with him, I said, ‘I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry.’ I told him afterwards, ‘I can sing ballads, you just haven’t heard me yet.’ He said, ‘I was in the era of crooners and we had to sing like that. You’re with the Beatles now and you’ve done a great job.’ I thought, ‘If the Beatles accept me, if Dick Haymes accepts me, I’ll stick around.”

Bill was very upset about that and when he met him, he said that was the pot calling the kettle black. They ended up as good friends.

    Donegan said, “I don’t care of that kind of blues” that is electric blues. Part of the anti-electric feeling of trad people at the time.

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.”

    John Lennon did a Johnny Mathis, giving negative reviews of every disc. He voted all but one a Miss. Didn’t harm his career though.

    Producer Neville Wortman: “I had John Lennon on before the rest of the Beatles. A music publisher told me that John Lennon would be a marvellous guest so I rang him and he came in and had lunch with us at the Television Centre with his leather jacket and it was a marvellous lunch in which he spoke about everything. It was a cinch to have him. A lot of people came up from Liverpool and elsewhere for that show. The Shepherd’s Bush Empire was besieged. That is when I thought this is going to be something much bigger than I thought it was. John Lennon was a great panellist as he didn’t care what he said. He stood from the rest of the panel that day.”

    The Beatles were playing in Abergavenny that night but they didn’t have to take the stage until 10.30pm at the Town Hall Ballroom. John Lennon was flown by helicopter from London at a cost of £100 and touched down at the the Penypound football ground at 9.50pm. They played to 600 fans and then stayed overnight at the Angel Hotel.

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.”

    The Shadows went to No. l with ‘Wonderful Land’, written by Jerry Lordan: “I got the first phrase and it took me six months to get to the middle. I knew it had to have a second part and I couldn’t think of anything. The Shadows did it marvellously and Norrie Paramor added strings very sympathetically. I thought it was fantastic but it didn’t get a unanimous vote on Juke Box Jury.”

    Saturday matinee for Scapa are at 5.30 but “the management have said that they would release Pete from a matinee if he could do JBJ wearing the naval uniform he appears in Scapa.”
    File note: “I think the idea of Pete in his uniform (though a good idea) is going just a little too far. As you know the present arrangement is that David gives the credit plug himself during the introduction of the panellists and this is obviously a much stronger plug than the normal voice ‘off’ at the end of a programme but further than that I don’t think we could go.”

    This was the first time JBJ had ventured out of the studios.
    The BBC was having an At Home week in Portsmouth.
    The audience was to include naval ratings, who were bound to be more vociferous than the usual teenage audience.
    David Jacobs is ex navy himself, a Chatham rating.
    Pete Murray has done 40 JBJs: “We are friends but what we say is sometimes slanderous to each other.”
    Jill Browne is a third DJ as she is presenting her own BBC show.
    After she was previously on JBJ (Programme 89), she was invited to make a record and it will be out soon.
    When June Thorburn wants to slim, she puts on rock’n’roll records and jives away.

    David Jacobs was exasperated with Harry Fowler on ‘Juke Box Jury’.

    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.
