Thread Name: 'Traditional songs' on The Archers
Subject: RE: 'Traditional songs' on The Archers
I'm not sure the recordings were anything to do with EFDSS.... Bob Arnold recorded 5 songs for the BBC folk music recording scheme in 1952. And 5 for HMV, released on 78s in 1954 (2 songs in common with the BBC ones). Then there was the 1972 Argo LP, Mornin' All (named after his opening greeting when the Sunday omnibus edition of the Archers had an introductory chat from Tom Forrest).

All this information from Traditional Music magazine no. 1 1975.

I think Bob Arnold may have deposited some papers in the VWML.
