I WAS glad Graham Melville-Mason's obituary of David Gow mentioned David's 'outrageous sense of humour', writes Geoffrey Stuttard. Many of us, as tutors and students at extra-mural summer schools at Frensham Heights and Seale Hayne, will have fond memories of his ability to produce at the drop of a hat songs and accompaniments to decorate such cabaret productions as 'Don Quickshot and Such a Pansy', 'Mustard and Cressida' and 'The Shaming of the Trews': for which he produced a beautifully soupy tune to a lyric of 'Beshrew me'.
