Storyline

The UCOS team investigates the death 10 years ago of popular disc jockey Johnny Deacon who died in a fire when the radio station was set alight. The police knew it was arson, but were never able to find enough evidence to charge anyone. Johnny was very opinionated on air and seemed to go out of his way to be offensive at time. He also had a number of female admirers, one of whom may have been stalking him. With Jack having virtually disappeared meanwhile, Sandra finds herself under pressure from DAC Strickland to start interviewing for his replacement. Despite their best efforts, Jack is nowhere to be found. Written by garykmcd

An 80s feast!
22 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jack's still missing unfortunately, resulting in DAC Strickland coming down hard on the rest of UCOS.

Anyway, this episode treats us to a feast of 80s memories through songs such as Walk like an Egyptian, I should be so lucky, In the air tonight, Never gonna give you up and so much more!! I'm pleased the repeats of this episode still contain these songs because sometimes the DVD release can't secure the rights:(

This episode also deals with underage groupies of DJs and the consequences of this.

Hopefully Jack will return soon!!!
