Richard Jobson – from singer to presenter


I remember being in Our Price on Oxford Street and seeing a huge poster of a rather Teutonic figure in athletic pose advertising a Skids album.  Lest we forget – here’s their most famous number.

As we all know, Stuart Adamson is no longer with us – very sad – I loved Big Country in the 80s but clearly he wasn’t a happy man.  Jobson though went on to present this London arts show which I’d nearly forgotten called 01 for London.  That’s when the dialling code was 01 before going through umpteen changes in the 90s.

Jobson had a presenting career at Sky when I was working at Sky News in the mid-90s.  Saw him in the canteen a few times along with Terry Christian who from memory was presenting the Pepsi charts at the time.
