Subject: RE: BBC Radio This week 2023
this evening, on the anniversary of Rabbie Burns' birthday (and also Ewan MacColl's), BBC Radio Ulster aired a programme about "fellow" songwriter, Lady Nairne. I recognised that name right away, but didn't recognise the name "Carolina Oliphant". I found the programme, immensely interesting, and commend it to you - even though it is mostly talk and a lot of the singing featured is performed in what I would call a parlour song style. Here is an article about the programme "The Secret Bard"
The programme is available for listening till late Feb (29 days from broadcast) https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m001hfm1
