    The BBC dropped plans to replace JBJ with a big teenage show. The intention was to have a 45 minute show on the 6.5 Special formula with a 15 minute “disc verdict”. After looking a try out with guest star Bobby Vee, and The John Barry Orchestra, Tom Sloan decided to keep JBJ as it was.

    JBJ used to be from the Television Theatre but it is now produced from a studio at the Television Centre with only 100 seats. The waiting list for tickets closed in January and people have been waiting about a year for tickets.
