Foxy 0 Posted August 1, 2004 Report Share Posted August 1, 2004 I started at Mundella in 1959 and had one year's worth of music with this amazing bloke. Apparantly he had been head hunted from Trent Bridge Boys in the 1920's and stayed at Mundella until his retirement in 1960. Why did I rate him ? Well, as a Medders kid, from a very working class background, I felt a bit of an outsider in my first year there. How did Barton help me ? Quite simply the old snuff snorter once strode from the front of the music room and belted this smarmy middle class young git round the lug-hole for talking in his music class. No other teachers did that sort of thing. It was usually this particular Meddersite who felt the wrath of the chalky caped crusaders. Oh and bye the bye Barton was one hell of a musician.
