I did sound with Ned, helped a bit with the recordings archives, also sometimes helped with maintenance. We were good friends. Others had posted already about his kind and gentle nature, so I didn't. Then last week I suddenly remembered an earlier time--80-81 maybe? He came up to the house on Sugarloaf Rd where I lived to help me (more like show me) how to put in a new water pump, must have been on my '58 Peugeot. He was so patient and knowledgeable and such a good teacher, it's a shame I didn't learn more from him sooner about cars. Or anything else he knew. That kind of teacher is very rare.
