A celebration of David Jacobs

January 30, 2014 in News


I’ll be recording with the BBC Concert Orchestra next week for a special “Celebration of David Jacobs” alongside Michael Ball, Joe Stilgoe, Marti Webb and Liz Robertson. Other contributors include Chris Evans, Tony Hall (Director General of the BBC), Desmond Carrington and Ken Bruce. It’s scheduled for broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on Sunday 9th February, almost exactly 18 years to the day after I first met David on Pebble Mill. Here’s a nice find from the archive, a page from the BBC’s running order of that very Pebble Mill broadcast. Happy memories.

I am coming back from the Caribbean for this concert, and then flying back again straight afterwards (for one day) then back to London. That’s 15,000 miles in 5 days. I’m going to spend my wages on flight socks and sleeping pills.

  1. Memories – great to see David narrating your Sinatra show on Bournemouth Pier, many years ago. Super show with David joining you in the singing too.
    So very cold afterwards walking down the Pier though, David wore a very warm cardigan. So smart I made Michael buy one the same.
