Thread Name: Radio Ballad Format - who created it?
Subject: RE: Radio Ballad Format - who created it?
I thought Lomax collaborated with Bob Copper and Ewen MacColl. Such are myths made of.

On BBC Radio 4 extra, yesterday, they broadcast a comedy programme first put out in the 40s. It was pretty broad Geordie. Bob Copper was commissioned by the BBC to go out and record the life and song of the rural idyll.

And the much lauded Ludwig Koch didn't speak received English, and neither sis his subjects!
