There were very many letters on Alan Fisher’s (and Call Sign’s) ‘Mailshot’ pages, bemoaning his departure as Editor and wishing him all the best. One of them I particularly liked, as it was from Willem Schouten, a Dutch reader of Call Sign and TaxiIntell: “Although I live in The Netherlands, I have been reading Call Sign Online for many years and was so sorry to hear that April will be the last time I shall see it. I read taxi and private hire magazines from around the world and yours is one of the two best ones alongside online magazine Wim Faber’s Taxi Intelligence which like Call Sign does not fill itself up with press releases. I and my small band of drivers have an online facility in our waiting room while their vehicles are being repaired and will miss you and the sense of fun you bring to cab driving stories.”
One line at the end read (in Dutch) “Kan uw Spurs winnen!” I bet the exclamation mark should have been a question mark, meaning: “Can your Spurs win?” Thank you, Willem Schouten.
- Praise indeed for Call Sign and TaxiIntell.
