GUEST,Eliza BS: I don't remember it being that good !!?? (20) RE: BS: I don't remember it being that good !!?? 20 Feb 16

I recently bought a CD of Uncle Mac's Children's Favourites. These were played every Saturday morning in the fifties on our old 'steam' radio, which had to be warmed up before it worked. (it had valves) These songs were loved, and we knew every word. But hearing them now, They have an extra charm somehow. The Runaway Train is just magic; and all Danny Kaye's songs (The Ugly Duckling etc) plus The Three Billy Goats Gruff, How Much Is That Doggy In The Window? and The Laughing Policeman. What touches me now is the sheer innocence and naivety of them. As a child, I didn't realise this, but now I do. Times have changed,and we are more sophisticated, but I have a tear in my eye playing these old tracks.
Does anyone else remember Uncle Mac and Children's Favourites?
