Radiobit: David Jacobs

There's a lot of love for David Jacobs this morning, after his death yesterday.

Perhaps the best way, from this distance, to understand his influence: he was a Radio One dj before there was a Radio One. He pioneered the UK chart rundown and the record review show. He was playing Elvis when the BBC wasn't even sure that Elvis wasn't toxic.

He broke barriers in a dinner jacket.
