Juke Box Jury: 1960Jurors are:NINA AND FREDERIK+David McCullum and wife, Jill Ireland,before she fucked Charles Bronson]This was a Saturday evening BEEB-polite programme, circa. 1959 - 1967.Here's the Scenario:David Jacobs, the Lord, from behind a desk, sentences the latest, offending 45s to hard labour; or finding them innocent, releases them into the custody of the poxy-faced arms of Blighty.
1. JOHNNY TILLOTSON's, 'POETRY IN MOTION'. Miss Ireland thinks the lyric is, 'SHE'S LIKE A TREE IN MOTION'
2. Skiffle-man and Jimmy Page, sideman, LONNIE DONNEGAN, with 'LIVELY' testimonial
After a jury* (usually composed of 'whose currently snogging"), hears the case, deliberates, and within a split-second, tritely disposes of the accused [in what would be, i'd imagine, a fair trial in someplace like Guinea or Ghana], the Jukebox Lord pushes a button and the next defendant is slapped on the stand. 'Jukebox Jury' is compulsory viewing if you're an archivist at a stock footage company in the meatpacking district of Manhattan trying to cleanse your pallate with a little 16mm sorbet from the industrial footage you've been cataloging since Halloween. All in All, I Liked It!
NINA AND FREDERIK: Songs from 'Verdens rigeste pige' 1958
*Apparently the first editions had a fixed panel including Pete Murray, Alma Cogan and a "teenagers'" view from Susan Stranks who later went on to become the nation's favourite alternative to Blue Peter.
