Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
David Jacobs, who retired last month due to ill-health, has died at home. He presented programmes continuously for 68 years.
Oh! I would have loved to have his comments on his 68 years. Including the time when presenters on the RADIO were to dress formally after a certain hour in the evening!
Never again to hear those welcoming words on a Sunday evening – “Hello There” followed by the opening bars of “I Love You Samantha”. Curiously those bars were missing from his last “David Jacobs collection only a few weeks ago.
