In the mid-80s he brought what he called “the music of our lifetime” to weekday Radio 2 for a long-running lunchtime show.
As Radio 2 celebrates the broadcasting career of David Jacobs this week and next here’s one of those weekday shows from 1985:
For the record David’s Saturday show started on 11 December 1978. Initially running between 8 and 10 a.m. It was later reduced to an hour when Sounds of the 60s started. It ended on 24 March 1990 when Sounds of the 50s came along. During part of this period David was also presenting Melodies for You on Sunday mornings until December 1984 when Robin Boyle took over.
The weekday show started on 7 January 1985 and ended its run on Friday 20 December 1991.
In 2011 David spoke to Steve Wright about his career.
