I'm another person brought here following the loss of Huw.

A friend of mine worked out which pub Huw went to before gigs at Pompey town hall. So I spoke to him there a couple of times. He also played at a couple of science fiction conventions in Brighton in the 80s, once with the Sonic Assassins (the only time I saw Bob live) and once with Hawkwind. I also chatted to him before a solo gig he did at the Railway in Winchester. I always found him approachable and a thoroughly pleasant guy.

I got myself onto Radio 5Live on Saturday night, nominating Hurry On Sundown onto the Up All Night virtual jukebox in Huw's memory but Dave Brubeck's Take Five was always going to get it this weekend. Maybe someone can try with anoth piece that might be more to their taste on the Saturday nearest the funeral.

Hiya!

Good work! Getting radio stations to find something other than "Silver Machine" is seldom easy! Guess we have to just stay on the case...

Thanks Graham. I started a thread in the main HW chat.

I would have quite liked to have gone to the funeral, but for a non-driver living in London, it doesn't look that easy to get to.

Greetings fellow Hawkfan. In my few months at Uni in Pompey I saw Hawklords at the Guildhall in late 78. Was the best thing I did while there!
