This morning's Today programme - an item on Wizz Jones around 8.25, followed by another on Lord Franklin about half an hour later. I just heard a snatch of Stan Rogers singing North West Passage.... (and there was an earlier item on tonight's Kate Bush concert too)!

The Wizz Jones item can now be heard here for a week. I wish there was more of him playing though!

Well, thanks for that, but honestly, 51/2 min of verbal garbage and 30 sec of him playing!

Mad

Brian Golbey? That is a name I have not heard in a long time - is he still playing?

Ah - Brian Golbey and Mike Stanley. I have great memories of the Stanford Folk Club at the Stanford Arms pub at Preston Circus, Brighton - in the 60s. A great place to end a Sunday cycle ride at. Bikes parked in the side passageway; upstairs a thick pall of cigar smoke; Merrydown (English wine) and blackcurent; and Tim Broadbent, Miles Wooten, Brian Golbey and Mile Stanley singing and playing. I think one of the regular guys taped the sessions - but I suspect those are long gone. Would be nice to hear these guys again though.

It is more properly SIR JOHN FRANKLIN ; he was never a "Lord" . I cannot understand how this LORD Franklin thing persists ! !

@GUEST: perhaps because 'Sir John Franklin' doesn't scan and flow off the tongue in the way that 'Lord Franklin' does. Try it. I also doubt very much whether the broadside writing hacks from Seven Dials and the common people who took up the song cared very much about the difference between 'Sir' and 'Lord'- they were all aristocracy, weren't they, whatever the handle to the name!
