John Walters.
Trumpeter with the Alan Price set in the 60's, joined BBC Radio 1 in 1967, and went on to produce John Peel's show for 20 or so years...and then produced many other programmes for the beeb.
Sadly, the old bugger died two days ago. 2 years after his retirement.
There is no justice in the world.....I'll miss him.
Anyone who can book a BBC studio for 3 Pianos and 3 Chimpanzees (and get away with it!), is OK by me.
Rest Easy John, Glad I knew you
