Careful - you're nicking our trademark there!! Must see about registering it somewhere...The "I Love Lucy Show" is the secondary (private) name we're giving to our show "Listen and You Shall Hear" which we (that's me, Ralphie and Derby Ram) are currently getting together to celebrate Lucy's 150th birthday on 9th August this year - more details at this Myspace link

Lucy definitely needs celebrating this year - she was the person that Ralph Vaughan Williams (50 years dead this year - 19 days after Lucy's birthday) acknowledged as having been almost single handedly responsible for ensuring the existence of the Folk-Song Society for nearly a quarter of a century - and without the FSS there would undoubtedly be no EFDSS as we know it now.... go Lucy!!! (sorry - inveterate partisan speaking here....)

(Oh and thanks EFDSS for publishing Dave Gregory's article on her! )
