Okay, here goes.
I've put a lot of work into digitising my collection of Singing Together (BBC radio Broadcasts for schools)
I've listed sets of these on EBay (recouping some of my costs), but don't want my collection to disappear with me.
I've sent a couple of full sets (or full at that time) to members here. I've now set up downloads on Google Drive, allowing me to direct EBay sales there.
I will also start making these available freely to Mudcat members.
Anyone wanting digital copies of these, just follow the download links in following posts. No charge!

The first post will be for the earliest ones I have, so there will be gaps before Autumn 1950. I will always welcome any booklets I don't have before this time.

No problems.
I don't know if you're a regular visitor here, to see the future additions, but if so the URL: https://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=171789 will bring you back to this discussion.

Also, while thanks are appreciated, I have been given an 'edit' facility for this discussion, so will occasionally delete some posts, especially ones containing links to my Google Drive account when I delete sets from that account.

Cheers

Thanks for the offer, but I'm filling enough real space with the booklets and virtual space with the scans.

Cheers

Nigel,

Feel free to delete my posts but it would be rude to just take these without saying: THANK YOU!

No problem Harry.
Perhaps I should be thanking you, as the stated intention of this discussion is to disperse copies so as not to lose this resource.

Hi Nigel,
I've just discovered this thread after an absence from Mudcat. I'd be very interested to see these files in connection with a research project on Cecil Sharp and singing in schools, but I don't seem to have permission to access any of them. Did I miss something or am I just being dim?
Cheers, Brian

Stop Press: It turns out I can access the files after all, if I just keep clicking - I was put of by a 'permission' message that obviously doesn't apply.

Thank you so much for all this effort, Nigel. It will be immensely useful in the research I described above, but has also provoked all kinds of nostalgic memories. So many of these songs have been embedded in my head for all these years, but sometimes it takes a reminder to bring them out. Just wonderful.

Brian:
No problem.
I'll take this message as a chase-up, and a reminder of a fact I've missed. Up until Summer 1960 the booklets include two series of programmes: 'Singing Together' and 'Rhythm & Melody'. From Autumn 1960 'Singing Together' was published separately, originally as an A5 booklet. These have been linked above.
From Autumn 1960 'Rhythm & Melody' was also published separately for a short, 4 year, run. Those are available here: Rhythm & Melody (1960-64)

Also, the next run of Singing Together: Singing Together Autumn 1968 - Summer 1972 These are in the newer format 235mm * 175mm (the same format used for the stand-alone series of Rhythm & Melody, also for most of 'Time & Tune' only ST is in 'portrait' where T&T was (mainly) in 'landscape'.

Thanks for this extra material, Nigel. The very first song in that 'Rhythm and Melody' set is The Watchet Sailor from Cecil Sharp.

Did 'Singing Together' and 'Time and Tune' cater for different age groups or something, since they seem to have been running concurrently?

Singing together was aimed at ages 9-11, Time and tune at ages 7-9
I may get around to making Time and tune available in a similar manner shortly.
