GUEST,TB Tom Bliss, BBC Radio 4 (16) Tom Bliss on BBC Radio 4 29 Dec 08


Just in case anyone does want to hear this, and missed my post on the Radio thread, I wrote:

Not 'Folk' but heard at many a folk club and festival over the past year - a certain Mr Bliss (T) will be reciting his infamous monologue/poem composed entirely of English and Welsh place names on The Home Service (aka Radio 4) on Word of Mouth; Tuesday 30th (4.00 pm) repeated on Jan 5th at 11.00 pm.

It starts thus:

Middle English (and Welsh) Pie

Takely: Appleby, Plumley, Cheriton, Pirton and Cantelop Melonby. Washington, Cutmill and Unstone. Ingoe Bole - and Masham* with Handley. Lickey End.

Pickwell Bury: Blewbury, Goosey Bury, Shawbury, Shrewsbury, Blackbourough and Llanberis. Tipton Shellow Bowells and Churn.

Watchett Caerphilly. Wendy Mould.. Outwell. Wendy Sea Palling Wormington, or Crawley Bugthorpe, Kilham and Binham.

etc until people start throwing things.

Tom

* Yes, I know. But these were all road signs I saw through my van window on my travels, so I can pronounce them how I jolly-well like!
