I copied and pasted that from 'somewhere else', so it wasn't me who put the capital letters in.

What a way to spend Christmas, eh! :0)

Worth trawling around BBC Iplayer for (regular)good stuff to listen to while doing other things on your computer. I like Colum Sands' Folk Club on Radio Ulster, and there was a great programme re the early Radio Ballads on Radio Merseyside not long ago. In Scotland there's "Travelling Folk" (lately "Folk with Fowlis") Mary-Anne Kennedy's Global Gathering, and for the Scottish dance fraternity there's the Reel Blend, and Take the Floor, often iterspersed with interesting music and interviews. Then there are other non-BBC internet folk radio programmes too, in UK, Eire, Canada, USA if you do a bit of searching.

Not 'Folk' but heard at many a folk club and festival over the past year - a certain Mr Bliss (T) will be reciting his infamous monologue/poem composed entirely of English and Welsh place names on The Home Service (aka Radio 4) on Word of Mouth; Tuesday 30th (4.00 pm) repeated on Jan 5th at 11.00 pm.

It starts thus:

Middle English (and Welsh) Pie

Takely: Appleby, Plumley, Cheriton, Pirton and Cantelop Melonby. Washington, Cutmill and Unstone. Ingoe Bole - and Masham* with Handley. Lickey End.

Pickwell Bury: Blewbury, Goosey Bury, Shawbury, Shrewsbury, Blackbourough and Llanberis. Tipton Shellow Bowells and Churn.

Watchett Caerphilly. Wendy Mould.. Outwell. Wendy Sea Palling Wormington, or Crawley Bugthorpe, Kilham and Binham.

etc until people start throwing things.

Tom

* Yes, I know. But these were all road signs I saw through my van window on my travels, so I can pronounce them how I jolly-well like!

Any other folk programmes on over the next week or so? I've started listening to the radio more again, and not familiar with the regular progs.

Late Junction on Radio 3. Especially when it's Verity Sharp's turn - I thnk she alternates two-week stints with Fiona Talkington. It's a "world music" program but you definitely get some proper English (and other British) folk.

(That's not just for the next two weeks, but indefinitely)

Currently listening to "Fowlis on Folk" on BBC Radio Scotland: recommended litening; available till next Thursday, includes the wonderful trio of Annie Grace, Karine Polwart and Corrina Hewat.
Go to BBC Iplayer, then radio programmes then Radio Scotland, etc!

I usually play what I think is a good cross -section of folk music as reflected by records that come out and by the seasons as they pass and the lineups at festivals etc.

Details can be found here.

A word of warning. There is no programme on December 12th because someone switched off the recording facility.

And the last actual programme was December 19th. There will be no new programme until next year.
