Johnny & Jon remember Radio 1 JAM jingles

A special radio programme will air this weekend celebrating a 40 year relationship between the former Controller of BBC Radio 1 and the President of JAM Creative Productions.

Johnny & Jon After 40 Years has been produced and presented by Stephanie Hirst, and introduced by Tony Blackburn. It brings together Johnny Beerling and Jon Wolfert to look back at their time working together in both Dallas and London.

Stephanie told RadioToday: “This is a programme I’ve wanted to make for many years, and because the opportunity presented itself, I thought I should do it.

“I thought in 1994 that wouldn’t it be lovely to chat to these two men one day to get their stories, and to hear first hand. Fast forward to 2015, and I’m introduced to Johnny Beerling, we have lunch and strike up a what has become a lovely friendship. He’s in his late 70s now, and is fighting fit, so I posed the idea of arranging a chat with himself and Jon in Dallas, to commit their stories to tape.

“After pitching the idea to Jon, he agreed and we connected to Dallas from my studio and all chatted for almost 3 hours.”

The programme will get its first airing this Sunday at 8pm on the radio industry radio station, inRadio, and will be available as a podcast shortly afterwards. It will also repeat every night next week at 7pm.

Stephanie continues: “To have produced a show with Johnny, Jon & Tony was a true honour and as an industry we should never forget their contribution to UK radio.”
