News: John Burgess ~ 2015

The STLD is sorry to hear that John Burgess passed away in December.

John was not only an STLD committee member for many years, he is believed to be the first freelance LD in our industry, from a time when everyone else worked for broadcasting companies.

John was a character in an industry full of characters - often irascible, always pioneering, and deeply passionate about his craft.  Many committee meetings became extended as John debated the other view on a subject that seemed otherwise settled.  The world needs rebels like John, and sadly has now lost another.

Our sympathies go to his wife Rosie.
