    Valerie Harbottle from Newcastle-upon-Tyne: Disc 140963
    “What on earth do these programme planners think they are playing at? For weeks and weeks I’ve looked forward to seeing Adam Faith on Juke Box Jury and Thank Your Lucky Stars and now he is to appear on each programme on the same day. Whose ridiculous idea was that?
    “What makes it more infuriating is to find that his appearance on Thank Your Lucky Stars was deliberately brought forward a week. It seems that we Faith fans are being got at.”

    Disc 051063
    F A Palmer, Cheshire.
    Loud applause for the straightforward attack made recently by Adam Faith in defence of British discs.

    Big mistake having Miriam Karlin on the same Juke Box Jury panel as Sidney James.
    Alley Cat, 13 April 1962

    Jean Owen (later Samantha Jones) of the Vernons: “JBJ was my very first television show and it was Lover Please that they were listening to and we just had to sit there smiling. Carole Carr who was a singer was on the panel and Gilbert Harding too. They put us behind a panel so the actual panel didn’t know that we were there. We thought it might be a Miss but it was a Hit. I had had visions of Gilbert Harding saying dreadful things about it but he was fine. It was genuine, we came in late and they definitely didn’t know we were there.”
