THE master of personality radio something that sadly doesn't exist now.He(and later Kenny Everett)were highly entertaining not just playing records and saying this is... and that was...but great "inbetween bits".Adrian Juste came along and tried to copy Jackson but to no avail.Jackson would be 111 now i think!

My first introduction to pop music was listening to Jack Jackson on Radio Luxembourg on a Sunday night at 7pm. A chance to hear some of the records from the US as well as the UK.

We would always listen to Jack Jackson I think about lunch time on a Saturday.
It was a highlight, he got the comic spots and the music just right:)

I am now in my eighties and remember listening to Jack Jackson's Record Round Up in what must have been 1949 in London. I have often thought of the programme since and the pleasure it brought to a working class kid in that dim cold English winter. Since then I have listened to his band. Wonderful arrangements.

Brother Dave and I would hurry home from the pub on Saturdays in the late 40's. Quick into our beds, turn out the light and listen to Jack Jackson. Just about the only source for Jazz in the U.K. then.

For me as a teenager in the 60's his shows were always fascinating and worth a listen for the innovative cutting of comments from comedy shows inserted with the music or even as dialogues, Hancock,Steptoe and Kenneth Williams were regular interlopers.
