Thread Name: Morris joins the Dodo?
Subject: RE: Morris joins the Dodo?
I often listen to LBC the talk radio station ( sorry non London people ) and the other night was no exception . I was particularly interested as the presenter was discussing the topic raised by this thread . He took loads of calls from listeners who were of the " there are only two things in life you shouldn't try , incest and Morris Dancing " variety , and very few from people who were pro morris dancing or any kind of traditional dancing etc .Those thatwere pro that he spoke to you could tell that there was a mocking tone in his voice . I sent in a text saying that their there are plenty of places you can go to see young people dancing , Towersey festival for example , though I know that its not just Morris specifically ,but hey ! its young people furthering the tradion
.... needless to say he didn't read out my text ..... the dickhead !
