Hi Emma

I've just checked with the editor of The Northern Drift who replied:

"Jake never did The Northern Drift - Alex [Glasgow] was the only singer the programme ever used. On this I can be 100% certain as I was the programme's editor, immediately following Alan Plater, and in fact it was while working on the programme in the BBC in Leeds that I first met Jake - who at the time was working on a different radio programme for Pamela Howe called The Northcountryman. The two programmes were very friendly with each other but there was absolutely no crossover between them."

...unless of course you know differently :)
