I have Tom McConville and Pauline Cato's delightful recording of it, and despite playing it over and over again I can't quite work out some of the words. Thanks for your help. Phil, Perth, Western Australia

Heard Beeswing by Richard Thompson last night. Can't get the tune out of my head, but wouold love to knoa the lyrics. Can anyone help?

Incidentally, heard it on Mike Harding's show on radio 2 last night. Having criticised the program here n the past, last night was excellent, perhaps because it was a request show instead of the usual. He did insist on talking over the introductions & endings though.
Suggestion to performers. leave out the begiinning & ends of songs so he does nopt have to.

Right there in Alan's post is a prime example of why I hate to listen to radio. The DJ's try to cram so much babble into their shows they will often times talk right over the intros of GOOD songs. In many songs the opening instrumental bars are as important to the song as the lyrics, they tend to set the mood in many cases. Couple that to the fact that only about one out of five is music that I happen to like and want to hear, (realizing that I am not the only one and others probably like those I don't), causes me to play many cassettes and CD's, or even more drastic, some old LP's. Anyway, having gotten that off my chest, I will now ,ake it through the day! ;)

Thanks Joe, glad you deciphered my needs thru the typos

Looked in the database, did not think to look thru old threads. Thanks again

Banjer - glad I'm not the only one. Started to think maybe I'm getting old & fussy, but I agree. I LIKE the intros, they are there for a reason.

Just think what would happen to all the wonderful 1940s & 50s songs! In so many the introductory verse leaves you guessing until the last second what well known standard is about to caress you (or cuff you about the ears I suppose!) real pleasure, easily and regularly spoiled by DJs who think they are more important than the music.

Until recently I'd not noticed this in folk music, but now I have it will only serve to reduce the time I spend listening to music radio.

Come back Jim Lloyd - Folk on 2 needs you!

They used to say that DJs talked over the starts/ends of records to stop people recording them off air. I think in most cases, that was just a side-effect. Mike Harding started off years ago talking over the rest of his band's tuning, and the story-telling just took over in time. I think he just likes talking; nothing wrong with that, he's entertaining to listen to, but at the right time, please, Mike!

Oh gosh, is Mike Harding a Mudcatter? (If not, why not?)

Steve
