Barry Norman

It was with real sadness that I heard of the passing of Barry Norman. When I was based at the Langham doing radio training in the early 1970s, Barry was a regular (daily?) inhabitant of the Langham bar. He was genuinely engaging and decent guy who would acknowledge us trainees. Not all 'celebrities did so. We felt so good after being able to chat with him over a pint. Positive, enthusiastic, professional, intelligent, knowledgeable ..... and kind.
