It certainly would have been interesting if the radio ballad triumvirate {Ewan, Peggy and Charles Parker) could have covered the present pandemic.

I’m sure that lessons would have been learned from the 1962 Radio Ballad “The Body Blow” which dealt with polio, which was a major health problem at that time.

I recall that a song to the rhythm and sound of an iron lung was a bit creepy.

Ewan readily acknowledged that it was not to the same standard as most of the other Radio Ballads
