Jack Good

An Oxford graduate, Jack Good was one of the first people in Britain to realise that Rock & Roll was more than a passing fad and probably understood more about presenting rock on TV than any other man alive at the time.

He produced the best TV music shows of the 1950s – Six-Five Special for the BBC and Oh Boy! for ITV (which effectively killed-off Six-Five Special). Then he bettered them both with Ready, Steady, Go! in the 1960s.

Good then emigrated to the USA to produce Shindig! and sent PJ Proby to England in 1964.
