Subject: RE: Archive on 4-Singing Together BBCRadio4
I have read these related threads with great interest. I was at primary/junior school between 1958-64. Has anyone any information about the music chosen for broadcast between 1961-4? I'd love to know exactly what the items were for these years. I seem to recall some American-themed music around 1963, like 'Home on the Range' and do well remember 'Rule Britannia' being very popular a year later. In fact I think it was voted favourite. Our teacher used to turn off the radio at the end of the broadcast then move to the piano ( she was a very competent player) and she'd run through one or more songs with us that we'd just heard.
