Title: Ian Wallace (1919 - 2009) R.I.P.
Post by Kevin Cryan on Today at 06:54
Only a few short months have passed since I noted that the lynchpin of the the radio and TV quiz show My Music, Steve Race (http://www.peteatkin.com/cgi-bin/mv/YaBB.cgi?board=offtopic;action=display;num=1245823782), had passed away. I now note that in  today's papers the passing another cherishable contributor to the programme, the bass-baritone Ian Wallace,  passed away on Monday.

A full page (http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2009/oct/13/opera-classicalmusicandopera) in today's edition of The Guardian is probably less than his many accomplishments deserve.

Many thanks for posting, Kevin. That's sad news. What a lovely and talented chap Ian Wallace was. Good to see the tribute from John Amis as well as the obituary itself.

Totally off-topic as usual but doesn't John Amis look like his cousin Kingsley? Well, Clive's a big fan of Kingers if you really want a connection. Plus he (KA) wrote a poem called "A Dream Of Fair Women.
