GOODBYE TONY TRAINS:

The one who answered the phone when I eventually made the call
that changed my life was Tony Trains. An unmistakable voice
anywhere in the world, unique even in his East London borough.
I remember exactly where he was sat the first time I saw him
in the corner of a tiny smokey back room near Romford dog track.
It blew me away how articulate he was & yet how different
our backgrounds were. The fact is, our journeys were the same
and when he spoke he told my story so eloquently that I
instantly liked the man & wanted to do whatever it was he was
doing that was making him so damn cool.
