Word came through earlier this evening courtesy of Radioinfo that Jaan (John) Torv had passed away. I was absolutely saddened to hear this news, I’m a big fan of his work and what better way to tribute him than to compile this post.

This contains various pieces of his work I’ve collected over the years in both video and audio form. Unfortunately we’re a bit light on of John’s taped history but hope you enjoy the following pieces – he will be unbelievably missed. RIP Jaan and thankyou.
