Thread Name: 'Learned from the singing of...' ?
Subject: RE: 'Learned from the singing of...' ?
There aren't many people I learned songs from personally, and I always say "I had this song from ..." Only Sean Cannon rates as a celeb out of this modest number anyway; and he wasn't a Dubliner at the time.

But I occasionally point out when there are youngster about that the traditional, old-fashionedand well-respected ways of learning a song when I was a lad was from a book or a record -- we had none of this namby-pamby internet stuff then, we had to work hard for our songs!
