Subject: Steeleye Span - Lost Radio Play Found!!!
From: GUEST,CJB
Date: 07 Apr 14 - 08:14 PM

I am posting this because this recording is a remarkable survival and it mentions mummers (well in the title) - CJB.

===

'The Mad Modern Mummers' or 'Dr. Frankenstein meets the SS' (aka Steeleye Span).

This extraordinary 'play' is a mixture of Goon Show-style characters and Kenny Everett, and features recordings by Steeleye Span.

The snippet of "All Around My Hat" by Stanley Unwin is hilarious.

It was originally aired on 27 December 1975, soon after the Beeb (bless them) junked the master tape(s). The programme has been 'lost' ever since.

But from December 1975 this definitive 'Radio Ballad' survived on a home-taped cassette and was sent to one dj Jonathan Taylor Brittunculi anonymously. The recording was cleaned up and then uploaded to YouTube. It is possible to download it from YouTube and convert it back to audio, e.g. MP3 at like 96 kbps (variable something).

Steeleye Span LOST Vintage 'Radio Play' Radio One 1970's - 'Frankenstein Meets The SS'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ot-cMdbWQx0

Steeleye Span Vintage Radio One Broadcast from 1970's - 'Frankenstein Meets The SS.' Broadcast at a point in-time when Radio One still shared airtime with Radio Two, this archive recording was not broadcast again until the late 2000's. This when I, as a community radio broadcaster obtained consent from BBC Motion & Archives to re-broadcast on (Phoenix Radio Calderdale) again to celebrate the bands 30th Anniversary Tour. Contains further live recordings from other radio broadcasts of mine, an interview with Maddy prior and a telephone interview chat with Richard Hollis (The un-official Steeleye Span website.) A MUST for all 'Steeleye' fans,- enjoy...

COPYRIGHT NOTICE: BBC Motion & Archives have granted me the right to re-broadcast this radio Show (their original studio master copy was lost / destroyed many years ago) but maintain ownership of all copyrighted material within EXCEPT afterward additional live recordings and interviews to which copyright is owned by me personally. Copyright ownership by Steeleye Span / Park Records of the musical works originally broadcast with these later community radio interviews has now been removed to allow for 'lawful upload.' Please support the band, do not steal their music and go buy some today from http://www.parkrecords.com

Ok, this is utter shite - sorry, I've had to give up after just 12 minutes.

Is it not too late to lose it again for another 40 years !!!???

Are the Steeleye performances throughout this badly dated, remorslessly self indulgent, tripe unique to this broadcast;
or are they just the standard version recordings from the LPs ?

Guess there's a lot of 'wacky' surrealist comedy from the 70s that our younger minds praised as brilliant back then,
that's just as much a chore to listen to now in this bleaker 21st Century.

Anyway, I'll give it another go when I can summon the strength and patience...

Yes, that was pretty brutal. What I heard of it. Seemed like tracks from the lps although by 1975 I had well gone off them so I wouldn't be sure on all counts.

The Goons didn't start every show with five minutes of hype telling you how funny they were going to be.

About what you'd expect from a comedian who'd entertain a Tory conference with jokes about kicking a disabled man's stick away.

Maybe find a fast free wifi service and download it using YTD or something. It has some interesting interviews at the end.
