Hey Ted you just reminded me of something. A couple of times last year while I was playing to very traditional audiences, I started doing a serious introduction to one of the Child Robin Hood ballads.I have no idea why, but I suddenly broke into "Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen, Robin Hood Robin Hood with his band of men....etc. Realized that i knew every word to the 60s TV show with Richard Greene...and sang the whole thing, including the great line...."They handled all the trouble on the English country scene, and still had plenty of time to SING!" Needless to say, it got huge laffs.......but (and I swear this is true) after the set, someone asked me seriously WHICH number in the Child collection, the song was!
