Vale Ian McLean

by Trevor Sinclair, Afternoon-Drive Presenter, Classic Hits 2CH

I’ve been asked to put a few words together in tribute Ian McLean who passed away at his home in Carey Bay on Tuesday August 11th at the age of 77.

Many readers of CX would be familiar with Ian’s work in sound and lighting over some six decades as well as his contribution to the LGBTQI community for many years. I’ve been told that Ian has collected and filed every edition of CX Magazine and although I’ve known Ian for some 25 years, I thought it better to let some of his friends and colleagues speak. Rick Hawthorne, David Reynolds, Gary Backhouse and Mark Taylor have all shared some thoughts.
