Subject: RE: Singing/Fishing BBCRadio2 tonight
The Radio Ballads were...like the Revival, a product of the times.I remember hearing them on the wireless out in the remote West of Scotland when they were first broadcast.It was amazing..real people sing ing about their life and work,something that everyone could relate to at that time.I went searching for more Folk music and have been trapped ever since
But we are all kidding ourselves if we thinkthe mass popularity willcome back.The days of halls full ordinary Joes singing the roof off are gone and folk music returned to the navel gazers Alex.
