Experiences of a Radio Journalist
Heritage Group Meeting of September 18, 2014
by Guy Dugas
What a pleasure it was to welcome Barry Burns as our featured speaker. A passionate former radio journalist, he regaled us with humorous stories of his checkered career and touching reminiscences of his time in Afghanistan. Clearly a sensitive man, Barry slipped from playful quips about his mixed Irish and Scottish ancestry, “I like to drink, but I hate to pay for it”, to tearful pauses as he remembered those, some now dead, that he left behind in Kandahar.
