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’.
