I have forsaken the David Essex poster for the SLADE one on the back.

I was disappointed that there was no photo-luv story, though. Or were they in other magazines?

SlartyBartFast Sat 12-Sep-09 14:23:12

i can't remember,
i don't think we got the magazine that much.

Slade, i like their music, but their looks leave somethign to be desired grin

I've just been flicking through that over lunch. TBH I'm more fascinated by the ads.

Did you see the recruitment ad for Barclays (pg 28)? Luring Top of the Pops fans to the big city to work!

Also quite shocked at the ad for slimming/diet food (pg29)-surely Jackie was aimed at teenagers? Was there such an obsession about being thin in the 1970s?

i only noticed the ad for Anadin for period pain, and and Rimmel,
guess who fell for that ad?

will relook

southeastastra Sat 12-Sep-09 14:32:26

ooh i've just sent dp out of it blush

Must have a look at the article.

I loved Jackie (before it went cartoony) and did have a David Essex poster.

Just sent DD off to the newsagent to get me a copy. And will probably do the same on Tuesday for Bunty - I loved that, especially the dress up dolls on the back.

my room was adorned with Bay City Roller posters, so i spose they must have come from Jackie.

I think the photo stories came in the following year or the year after when Jackie started having to compete with mags like My Guy and Blue Jeans. They had a complete redesign some time around then.
My 12-yr-old DD thought Jackie was beyond weird hilarious - especially the article about how to attract boys at the disco.

My 13 year old was GLUED to it all through lunch!

The thing I found a bit depressing was the realization that standards of literacy MUST have been much higher then - however much I argue that they weren't!

Can you imagine most 12 year olds managing ^all those words^ today?

SlartyBartFast Sat 12-Sep-09 16:49:33

dd (12) thought it was good,
strangely similar,
without comic strips

SlartyBartFast Sat 12-Sep-09 16:50:19

smile she seems to think jacqueline wilson had somethign to do with it though. not entirely sure if that is true.

southeastastra Sat 12-Sep-09 16:51:59

love the rimmel ad, wonder how my 17p is today.

southeastastra Sat 12-Sep-09 16:52:37

how much!

yep standards definitely slipping grin

LadyGlencoraPalliser Sat 12-Sep-09 17:08:23

Slarty - Jacqueline Wilson worked for the company when Jackie was launched and claims the magazine was actually named after her.

Furball Sat 12-Sep-09 17:28:22

I'm hugely peeved as I didn't know about this so have missed it. I used to love Jackie.

noddyholder Sat 12-Sep-09 17:29:33

NorbertDentressangle Sat 12-Sep-09 17:33:21

furball -if I remember I'll bring my copy to the meet-up for you.

Those of us "of a certain age" can then show the youngsters where we got all our info on boys and sex grin

southeastastra Sat 12-Sep-09 17:33:58

noddyholder Sat 12-Sep-09 17:37:14

bigTillyMint Sat 12-Sep-09 17:41:25

grin David Essex - he was my pin-up when I was 10!

I don't remember the print being so small either, but my eye-sight was better then.

The photo stories were in Blue Jeans, weren't they?

Furball Sat 12-Sep-09 17:51:42
