Subject: August 2008 Worlds of Trad Upload
From: Fred McCormick
Date: 14 Aug 08 - 07:32 AM

Just to remind folks that the August 2008 edition of Worlds of Trad Internet radio is now uploaded. The new programme will be on-line until Wednesday September 10th, and features a minimum of three hours of the very best in traditional folk, Irish, ethnic, world, roots, blues, old time country and early jazz; in fact traditional music from absolutely everywhere.

This month we've a bumper crop of harvest songs, plus a clutch of ditties about wronged and ruined maidens from Len Graham, James and Paddy Halpin, Charlie Murray, Ben Lennon, Tony O'Connell, Sam Larner, Tom Lenihan, Jeannie Robertson and Lizzie Higgins.

We revisit the new CD from Carmel Gunning, and this talented lass of North Connaught is joined by performers from three new CDs on the Cló Iar Chonnachta label, likewise featuring the music of North Connaught. Then, still in new release mode, there are three tracks from the stunning new CD of the Balkan band, Shira U'Tfila.

In between times, I dig out some archive records of Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly, before catching up on a couple of field recorded worksongs, which Leadbelly probably heard when he was in the pen.

Jelly Roll Morton's Red Hot Peppers and the Young Tuxedo Brass Band come marching in with a couple of New Orleans funeral tunes; while Sammy Price, Yak Taylor, Trixie Smith, Leroy Carr and Bobby Phillips get laid back on substances scarce and mellow - and very likely illegal.

There's the usual assortment of exotic sounds from all over. Then, while Robert Johnson dusts his broom, Elmore James is left Standing at the Crossroads and Homesick James complains that The Clouds is Crying.

There's a small tribute to the folksong collector Hugh Shields, who died just a few weeks ago; there's a bit of West African kora from Jali Sherrifo Konteh; and Little Walter, John Lee Hooker, Tommy Tucker and Sugar Pie Desanto remind us what a wonderful world it was when you could plug in the 45 RPM record player, and spin a bundle of those old Chess label singles. Happy days!

All that and much much more and you can read the complete playlist below.

To listen to the programme go to
, and click on the yellow speaker button. If you haven't listened before you'll need to follow the onscreen instructions to download the station player. Then wait a moment for the ads to clear, press the yellow PLAY button and the station will be on the air. Then if you press the green button to the right, you can set Worlds of Trad as a preset. That will save you having to search the next time you listen in.

As always we're on a 24/7 continuous loop. So you can pick the show up at any time and hear it right through. The music is great, listening is free and I'm always glad to receive requests.

So, log on, lay back and give your ears a treat. Go on. You know you want to.

Fred McCormick.
