R.I.P. David...


Sometimes you have an idea for a blog post and then, suddenly, it is overtaken by other news. This is the case tonight...

A dear friend, David Freeman, has lost his battle with cancer and died. David and Pinky worked together at the BBC for many years. They were friends, both before and after they retired. David leaves a lovely wife, Michaela, in the Czech Republic where they lived together for many years, enjoying their love of, and participation in, early music and the musical instruments that were played many, many years ago, and which they brought to the attention and enjoyment of modern audiences.

I have searched the BBC for pics and info. Zilch. He was a Dubbing Mixer for Bast's sake, his name appeared on many programme credits! As to Early Music in Prague and the Czech Republic, Google has several references but I can't narrow down the ones which David and Michaela were specifically involved in...

...So dear readers, if you didn't know David, you may be yawning. But please bear in mind that our blogs are kind of diaries, so sometimes... well... you know!

Thank you for posting such a nice obit for David. He would have been tickled pink to see himself mentioned on a cat blog site as both he and Michaela are very much cat lovers. Their cat, whose name escapes me at the moment, was very adept at helping them both with the typing on their computers. A very special cat as he could handle both a PC and a MAC!

I shall miss his 'how do I make my PC behave properly like my MAC emails!
