David Hoyle – Audio CD 2

September 27th, 2009 Comments off

David_Hoyle_160On the 4th January 2005, David began a session of voice recordings with Cowling History Group Moonrakers.

David personally has recorded 2 CD’s on his own and also recorded 2 more with another local man Norman R Binns.

David had a unique way of telling tales of the village in its native dialect, something that is now very rare but thankfully captured for posterity by Moonrakers for future generations.

Sadly David passed away on the 14th of March 2009, aged 83 years old.

As a memorial to David, Moonrakers have to put both CD 1 & 2 on this website for anyone in the world to listen to them.

David was a real gentleman and although no longer with us he will always be remembered for his deep love of the people and the history of Cowling.
