Re: Rose Tinted Spectacles
Tony was thrown off the VOP by Abe at one point. He was staying with Don Stevens in Tali's flat in Bnei Dan at the time. I heard an unconfirmed story that he called Abe a typical f***ng Jew though I believe he'd been thrown off the ship for taking the pi** out of the advertisers. I heard no actual stories of bullying as such on the peace ship but he certainly had an overpowering presence and he'd be nice as pie one minute and just as soon turn. And Alan West could actually turn in the middle of having a conversation with him.
He did seem to mellow in later years when working with Chris Carey at Nova. Others will also tell you that they got on ok with him in his time in Ireland and though my contact with Tony was somewhat limited over the years he was always reasonable
Radio does seem to attract some very strange people and for a fact I've met a few in my time of which Tony was but one.
