Committee Member Profile

Tony Baines - Secretary of the FRMS

Federation Secretary since 2002, Tony is a former Primary School Headmaster. He was Secretary of the Stoke-on-Trent Recorded music Circle for 10 years, and is presently Chairman of the Newcastle (Staffs) RMS. He is also a member at Stafford, where he enjoys the luxury of relaxing, socialising and listening without having to do any work!.

He is currently considering retiring from office, but will miss the 'front desk' contact with societies that he has enjoyed for so many years, and especially the camaraderie and goodwill that is so widespread throughout the Federation, and the comradeship of the excellent Chairman and Committee who continue to do so much to carry our great movement forward.

Musically, he would retire to a desert island with J S Bach's complete works for solo violin and cello, and the complete works of Beethoven - and, his not so secret passion, the entire output of Hector Berlioz.
