My parents were avid Jack Jackson fans from his radio beginnings in the 1940s. His TV series from mid-late 1950s were not to be missed. As a school boy I was fascinated by his radio style and would record the 'in-between' bits from his radio series, Record Roundabout, from 1959 onwards, many of which I still have!Even now, just hearing his theme 'Carnival'by Harry James brings a wry smile.

would hardly ever miss a Jack Jackson Saturday night Record Roundup programme in 1951/52. First plays for -Guy Mitchell, Johnny Ray, Frankie Laine etc. Never forgotten.

Jack inspired many DJs and was the first to include comedy clips in between records and in making sketches out of them.
Adrian Juste must be remembered for continuing this exciting style of broadcasting.
