    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.

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