Thread Name: Cartoons with a Music Theme
Subject: RE: Cartoons with a Music Theme
I posted a query as to whether anyone else remembered the Punch cartoon about the Lomaxes on the BBC American Folk History thread. I also asked my friend the BBC's Quote·Unquote maven Nigel Rees. Unsurprisingly he came up with the answer, which probably fits best on this thread. The drawing was by Hewison & appeared in Punch vol 233 page 73 1957: it shows a strumming country bluesman singing "I-got-the-Alan-Lomax-ain't-been-round-to-record-me-blues".
