Radio 1: The Jocks

JUSTE, Adrian

Tearing the soul out of this page...TIME-HONOURED wacky-thumbs-aloft character, with permanent helium-hysterical microphone voice, who linked funny comedy clips (Steven Wright et al) in an unfunny way (interrupting every other line of routine with a jokey “Oh, really?”, “So what happened?” etc) on a Saturday lunchtime, between DLT and a documentary about Steve Lillywhite. Also regularly to be found manning those ‘technically complex’ occasions like Bank Holidays, assembling weekly highlights show Radio 1 More Time, and seeing in the New Year with a ‘Bong’-straddling, Jive Bunny-anticipating mashup of the hits of the past twelve months (invariably billed by the Radio Times, in textbook Juste Humour fashion, as “the show that lasts two years!!”). Sacked over the phone when about to go on air just as Bannisterisation took hold, and has never missed an opportunity to stick the boot in ever since. Love him or hate him, the man basically WAS Radio 1 at one point.
