Thread Name: The Radio Ballads-available on the Internet
Subject: RE: The Radio Ballads
Determinedly trying to get this url onto here. Here goes again. Afraid it's still copy and paste from this.
Yes, I have a lot of listening to do to. I hope the bbc link stays up a while as I'm away from home for a hoiday on Thursday. Off to Turriff to see a cousin. Am calling in on Aberdeen for a couple of nights. Will be going to an event hosted by the Elphinstone Institute on the Scottish Traveller Culture. I'll be seeing my old friend Stanley Robertson again (Jeannie's nephew). I wonder if any of his family were on that Travelling People radio ballad...
I think the radio ballads have been uplifted as part of the publicity for their modern counterparts; don't know how long they'll be up there.
