I don't dare paste in my mother's version of "Hush Little Baby" but there's Jean Ritchie's well known "What'll We Do with the Baby-O?" with similar sentiment. Gallows humor is often a survival strategy for the frustrated, but my brother and I had no such excuse for enjoying such songs; we were simply perverse.

Abby - thanks for a better and more complete set of lyrics to "Siembamba;" "until he's dead" didn't make much sense to us but I now see how we could have easily misinterpreted the lyrics.

In later years they recorded some marvelous children's albums. They were part of a series called Science Songs that were put together by the noted songwriters Zaret & Singer. They recorded two albums for the series that are really beautiful. I hope someday they will be re-issued. Tom Glazer also recorded some albums for the series.

I just realized - is this 5:00 pm special replacing the regular 3:00 "Traditions" show? (Or has that changed somehow?)

If youse guys are on the air with the morning show, the 3:00 and this special, too, won't that be much like having a regular job?

Be careful there.

The documentary is part of the Traditions 3pm to 6pm show. Traditions is doing fine and remains in that time slot, just as it has been for 30 years. You are right, it does seem that Bill and I have a full time gig at WFDU! In addition to Traditions I host the weekly Sunday Session every Sunday morning at 9am. Bill hosts a monthly talk program on Radio Omnibus at 8am. It keeps us off the streets!

Oi! After all this & the rushing home just in time & then finding the stream to crowded to get in without monster re-buffering then finding my computer's resources all used up in the process then taking a full half-hour to reboot & get back online, I just managed to catch the second half-hour which was very good, yes, but it was the bio part I was really interested in and that I missed out on but it's not that I'm whining here it's just that I'm still pissed off but I think you posted that the whole segment was to be archived with yer other shows here at Links | Radio but I see that it ain't quite yet but I assume it soone will be and all will be well?

Abby,

I'm not sure if the program will be archived at Mudcat, but we will be re-broadcasting the show on WFDU in the future. We would like to thank you and everyone else who expressed interest in this program. I am so glad that it was well received by those who heard it!

The Marais and Miranda Website was mentioned above. I see that they now have a CD available. Apparently, the site is operated by Miranda's son.

I gather, just from the fact that nothing further was said about it, that the program was NOT archived at Mudcat. Right?

Refresh.

I'm moving around some books that belonged to my Dad (John Dwyer) and came across a copy of World Folk Songs. I see in this thread that at least one other Mudcatter has a copy. There's a nice little section on mountain dulcimers in it. It also has some nice wood cuts. Amazing little book.

A friend of mine just gave me, obtained from the Marais and Miranda web site, a reproduction (I assume it's a reproduction) of a full-page ad for the duo from the February, 1953, issue of "Musical America."
The ad reproduces a Feb. 2, 1953 New York Times review of Marais & Miranda's sold-out concert at Town Hall. It concludes thusly:
    "The size of the audience is perhaps worth special comment. At many a recital following conventional lines the house has been more than half empty. Yet in the last few weeks, Richard Dyer-Bennett, Andres Segovia and Marais and his wife have packed the hall. It is surely an indication of a strong interest on the part of listeners in guitar playing and in songs sung gently in the language the audience understands."
The review is signed only with the initials: R.P. Whoever he or she was, R.P. was onto something.

Thanks open mike--I was a little confused when I looked at the thread today. I didn't think I'd offered it anywhere! It's nice to see that the book is not only available but affordable.

The review you quote from that poster actually seems kind of off-kilter to me, kind of general ad copy stuff. I think Richard Dyer-Bennett, Andres Segovia and Marais and Miranda would pack houses wherever they went--and it involved a lot more than just "guitar playing." They were consumate performers. And I don't believe Andres Segovia sang anything, gently or otherwise.

Actually, Segovia sang a helluva "Roll Me Over in the Clover." But that's better left for antoerh thread.

Dear Cathy / Guest,

You might look up the organizations behind that radio documentary.

For one, there was Ron Olesko's station,
Traditions with Ron Olesko.
