Thread Name: Lyr Req: Song about Wind Farms
Subject: Lyr Req: Song about Wind Farms
A while ago on Radio 4 (Uk)there was a fake folk-song supposedly written in the future, on the subject of the shutting down of the old wind farms.

It was in the sentimental style of folksongs regretting the passing of, for example, the hand weaving or the sailing ships, but was about the passing of the "silver blades that now will sweep no more" (or something like that - much better.)

Did anyone catch it by any chance, or does anyone have any information about it?
