with Margaret Cowie and David Tanner.
with Ken Lindsay.
Margaret mentioned in Grapevine about the passing of Leonora Smart, long time volunteer reader with Playback. Both her and her husband Peter were educated at Christ's Hospital and Leonora was a long time supporter and pupil sponsor of the School. In July 1993 Hugh Gray visited the school in Horsham in West Sussex and spoke to former pupil and Clerk to the Governors Captain Michael Peerie and two of the pupils.
Alex Dickson was the former Manager of Glasgow's original local radio station Radio Clyde and he sadly passed away last month at the age of 82. Alex was the driving force behind the development of Radio Clyde and in January 1995 Playback presented a programme of 21 years of the station. The whole team was involved, but Gordon Luke had the job of speaking to the boss Alex Dickson.
