DAVID ADES

Evergreen - - Percy's Post Bag -

We are sad to an­nounce the pass­ing of David Ades to whom we gave our first Good Mu­sic Award in last win­ter’s is­sue. David ran the Robert Farnon So­ci­ety for many years and edited Jour­nal into Melody ( JIM), a won­der­ful mag­a­zine. He had an en­cy­clo­pe­dic knowl­edge of light mu­sic and it is no ex­ag­ger­a­tion to say he was one of a tiny group of peo­ple who res­cued the genre from obliv­ion. He was a pro­fes­sional ad­viser to sev­eral record com­pa­nies and was per­son­ally re­spon­si­ble for a vast ar­ray of light mu­sic CDs. His legacy is huge and we are pleased to have worked closely with him.
