Ex ABC 3LO broadcaster Barbara Horn has died. Don't bother going to the front page of ABC Melbourne. No mention there that I can see. She was a fine broadcaster of the old the school but was not averse to a bit of on air fun, like her flirtatious conversations with footballer Robbie Flower. She was an important person in the modernisation of ABC radio in the early eighties, with her less formal style. Less formal, but still very professional.
There was minor tribute by Lisbeth Gorr on ABC Melbourne, unfortunately with Barb on the end of a telephone, and so not did give listeners an opportunity to listen to her deep, beautifully modulated and seductive voice.
