I have been fortunate to meet John Glen several times over the years. Always a pleasure as he is a lovely man and among the inner circle of people behind the successful phenomenon.

In September 2007 I was given the opportunity to interview John exclusively for From Sweden With Love & Roger Moore's official site.
