Thread Name: Radio Ballad Format - who created it?
Subject: RE: Radio Ballad Format - who created it?
Maccoll had made a number of programmes on British working practices a decade before the Radio Ballads - I vaguely remember hearing them as a teenager, before I was interested in folk song.
The titles that spring to mind are, 'Landscape With Chimneys', 'Pit Stop' (lorry drivers) and 'St Cecilia and the Shovel'
