In case it looks as if all I do at the moment is introspect...

(if that isn't a verb, then the spirit of neologism says that it ought to be)

The third track on Wednesday's Mike Harding show on Radio 2, 'Bush Boys' by The Mammals, is very funny if you are in a mood to think the political state of the USA irredeemable as long as a member of the Bush family is in power. The playlist, and a link to the show itself via 'Listen Again', is here.

I didn't know you were a Mike Harding fan! I've been listening to MH for about 3 years now and its one of my favourite programmes! I haven't had chance to isten to last nights yet, cut I hope to soon and I'll listen out for that track!

I listen to it on and off, and am often too busy to really concentrate as I'd like to, nor organised enough to follow up tracks I like. I'm really glad it's there, though - and I'm hoping to make time to catch the new radio ballads.

The radio ballads look very worth a listen. It's great that the BBC is finally giving a bit more time to folk music, both on the radio and on BBC4.

I got into folk music through the Wednesday 8pm radio 2 programme, though it was Jim Lloyd then. (Had it not been for the fact that Wednesday night was the only night I didn't go out to a student society, I might not have discovered folk music at all, beyond Arthurian singing.) I don't get much chance to listen to Mike Harding, since Wednesday night is Morris dance night. I must remember "Listen again"...

I almost mentioned your cassette archive of the Jim Lloyd programme! I certainly remember you and king_pellinor pulling tapes off the shelves with pertinent or entertaining songs for the moment, in days of yore.
