On BBC Radio 2 tonight, the Mike Harding Show will feature all of the songs from the Beatles Album Rubber Soul performed by all sorts of people. These include Ralph McTell singing Michelle, June Tabor with In My Life and Waterson Carthy's version of Norwegian Wood. Must be worth a listen.

On Late Junction on R3 later on at 22.20 will be Christmas Champions, a commissioned feature on Mummers' Plays from Chris Wood & Hugh Lupton which, using field recording, narrative poetry and song, will exolore this mystic tradition.

I would prefer to find a thread telling us that Mike Harding was going to use his show to play some British Folk Music.
Let's face it - he only ever plays American people unless they are a young woman.
If he wants to do a show of Beatles songs, it ought to be in a separate one-off slot of its own.
Quack!
GtD.

This is called 'howling at the moon'. However, to be fair, I haven't yet heard this Rubber Folk CD:

Drive My Car - Jim Moray
Norwegian Wood - Waterson:Carthy
You Won't See Me - Paul Brady
Nowhere Man - Chris While
Think For Yourself - Coope Boyes & Simpson
The Word - Johnny Dickinson
Michelle - Ralph McTell
What Goes On - Boo Hewerdine & Eddi Reader
Girl - John Tams
I'm Looking Through You - Martin Simpson
In My Life - June Tabor
Wait - Cara Dillon
If I Needed Someone - Show Of Hands
Run For Your Life - Spiers & Boden

but only two are by Irish artists and none are performed by Kate Rusby. This must be some kind of record.

Well if artists of the calibre of June Tabor, Martin Simpson, CBS, Waterson Carthy etc etc think it's worth doing, that's good enough for me (and, I'll wager, a very great many others).

Thanks for the info Mike, I'll take a listen.

The bloody Beatles again? Am I the only person in the bloody world who is sick of hearing them over and over on the radio? They imploded 35years ago for Gods sake!

There was a great version of 'I'm looking through you' a few years ago by Steve Earle!

'This must be some kind of record.' Yes your Ladyship; but we call them CDs now.

Well, Michael (whoever you are), as I was remarking to Young Redin (the Pretender Earl Richard) just before that floozy dumped him down the deep drawer well: 'Isn't it amazing how many peeps who've had an irony bypass also haven't heard of Child #68?'

Yes, the Beatles parody prog should be interesting, More importantly is the later prog on BBC Radio 3 starting at 2220 (UK Time) featuring this new project by Chris Wood and Hugh Lupton.
Chris was telling me about it a few weeks ago, and this is one thing I definitely won't miss tonight!

PS...Both progs will be on the BBC site "Listen again" facility for the next week.

Happy listening

Ralphie

Many years ago I had the honour of accompanying Mr Coope on "The Long and Winding road" Copies available on E Bay soon!!

Though some of the Beatles covers were somewhat dreary, Mike Harding was worth listening to for Chris While.

Heard the SOH contribution at Sheffield last Saturday - good stuff. Calling the CD "Rubber Folk" does lead to all sorts of strange thoughts though!.

Well I thought most of it was utterly underewhelming!   Well actually most of it wasn't that good - utter tripe more like. Spent most of the hour trying to learn MaDe Schottische so it wasn't a complete waste of time. I did like Run For Your Life though (it's my favourite track of the original LP)

underwhelming

Exactly the word I just used Over There @ the beeb, having struggled through last night's broadcast on the replayer. Some of it (Dillon/While/Hewardine & Reader/and - sad to say - W:C) was cringingly awful. Tams/Tabor/S&B were best, though I really wish I hadn't bothered. The recording quality sounded muffled and SoH seemed considerably out-of-tune at points.

OTOH, as Guest above remarks, the LJ broadcast later was stunningly good.
