What a surprise - someone on Radio NOT making fun of Morris Dancing...

A link which appeared today on Facebook.

(from)The Morris Ring
Here's the link to Peter Halfpenney (Squire of the Morris Ring) on Chris Evan's show this morning. Starts at 2:11:50. Well done Peter!

The same show also included a short chat with Jon Boden (Jon Boden at 2:22.46 in the programme) about an appearance by Bellowhead in a Radio 2 concert tomorrow evening.

Will wonders never cease.

The BBC national stations on radio and TV generally give very sympathetic coverage to folk music, song and dance. Pity about the local stations.
