Wally Macnow The Radio-Ballads (12) The Radio-Ballads 23 Jun 99


Thought there might be a few folks interested in this.

The eight Radio-Ballads created between 1957 and 1964 will be coming out on CD next month. These are classic radio documentaries put together by Ewan MacColl, Peggy Seeger and Charles Parker.

They are: The Ballad of John Axon (on railwaymen) Song Of A Road (on roadbuilders) Singing The Fishing (on herring fishing communities) The Big Hewer (on coal miners) The Body Blow (on those suffering from polio) On The Edge (on teenagers) The Fight Game (on boxers) The Traveling People (on Britain's nomadic peoples)

Some great songs came out of these programs.
