.   Just watched "The Man with the Jazz Guitar" DVD about the radio presenter and fifties guitarist who hosted "Guitar Club". It really is a warm portrait and very well put together, with lots of archive material that will jog some memories.
   He lived in Argyle, having bought a hotel and moved his family there.

Is this DVD currently available? I knew Ken briefly way back when he was living in Suffolk. Always enjoyed his BBC programmes, Saturday evenings I seem to remember about 6.30 and he was always very good company. One of the nice guys that I met in the music business.

Ken's radio broadcasts as performer or presenter were part of my childhood too.

It was only after his passing that I learned that this Radio Clyde and BBC Scotland
presenter had been an eminent jazz guitarist, such was his modesty.
Django was his inspiration.
