Surely Geoff, nice man that you are, should know that the ballad session is really aimed at the excellent guests and not as a general singaround.

It was originally Peter Bellamy's idea, taken up by Malcolm Storey - because he listened - and was aimed at setting a standard for others to attain to.

Because in recent years this has not been pointed out either by inference to the guests or to the general public ther has been a tendency for it to be devalued.
