Jane and Daryl Ilbury's special tribute to JvB

As a 6-year-old child I used to listen to East Coast Radio on the way to school every morning and hearing JVB and former Breakfast Show host Daryl Ilbury, I can remember the seed of intention silently being sown. I was so taken by the connection, imagination play and immediacy of radio and loved hearing the joy and banter. When I got my foot in the door in 2004 you can imagine the surreal moment of meeting my creative gate keepers. I worked with Johann von Bargen every morning for a year while hosting the weekday breakfast show - and from the first day I met him it was a laugh a minute. He would arrive each and every morning fresh, chipper, armed with jokes and a cappuccino. I also loved waiting to see what t shirt he would rock up in at 5:30am. My best was a shirt he had of a cartoon dog painting a wall. I loved sitting and hearing JvB tell me story after story of his life, his insight, and of course how to keep safe on the road. I smile fondly thinking of the time we used to do corporate team building activities together and would see us each arriving with a car full of hula hoops, orange road cones and balls. Our friendship from day one was one that regardless of time would always remain the same and I would grin when I got an SMS joke out of the blue. I will always remember the way his eyes smiled and crinkled in the corner, how he used to shake his wrist to move his gold bracelet when telling a story. Even seeing him last month in a fragile and unwell state, I sat on the floor next to his chair and his attitude was still there, upbeat, brave and in survival mode. Thank you for the time JVB, fly high, love always…
