    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

    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.

    The Times, 060763
    I am a devotee of JBJ principally because the camera has such a quick eye for the mannerisms and reactions of the bewitched onlookers. There is an old English word for this condition, more expressive than ‘bewitched’. It is betwattled.

    On Juke Box Jury, Steve Race brilliantly summed up Brenda Lee last Saturday.
    NME 12 July 1963

    On Lucky Stars, Brian Matthew didn’t have DJ’s assurance; guest disc-jockey Sam Costa most unfunny.

    Helen Shapiro; “Stubby Kaye had a go at me when I was the victim behind the screen. As soon as he heard my deep voice, he said, ‘Oh, Henry Shapiro’. It helps to have a broad back in show business.”

    On ‘Juke Box Jury’, Brian Matthew’s intended humorous impression of Dick Katz in bad taste.
