One of the folkies who even before the Liverpool Spinners brought folk song to a wider audience via radio and t.v. especially to kids. And remember Pussy Cat Willum?

In 1967 Wally was approached by the producer Ian Grant to host Country Meets Folk, a new series which bravely brought together the realms of country and folk music. Originally intended as a six-week series, it remained on air for six and a half years. As a reason for the show's success, he explained that, "although both musical forms had their own identity, neither had the individual airplay that the ever increasing fans would have liked".

More CMF at the Cornucopia thread very soon.

I even remember Wally from Five O'Clock Club which I watched as I had wee crush on Muriel Young at the time.
Wally was fine but I hated Fred Barker and Ollie Beak intensely.

Wasn't Wally's first brush with fame as leader of The Vipers Skiffle Group? That's where I first encountered him.
He was certainly a geat asset on the folk scene a good M.C and raconteur. We often booked him at the Ballads & Blues Club along with Red Sullivan, two people who enjoyed being entertainers as well as "folkies". However,both were quite capable of doing the more "serious" material too.
Wally managed a successful career without the aid of a manager or agent, something not very easy to achieve. It was sad that he went far too soon.
