We had a thread like this some years ago, but it faded away. I think top performers deserve a mention, many we may have forgotten.  So today we wish Happy 90th birthday to David Oistrakh  :happyBirthday:

I'll never forget the impact seeing Butch Cassidy for the first time had on me...  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

 

He's just two months older than my dad.

There was an interesting series of short programmes on Bob,  BBC R4 last week, following the lunchtime news. 

Don’t know if it’s still available to listen to. 

Looks like it might be -
