Thread Name: Cyril Tawney, Dorset
Subject: RE: Cyril Tawney, Dorset
God you've plucked a name from the past. It brings back memories of my bed-sit days in London listening to Cyril Tawney and the "LOO SHANTYMEN" I believe they were called on the old Beeb Light. It must have been on Thursday evenings (when pecuniary disadvantage kept me solitarily a-bed - before payday). There was a programme of Shanties and For'bitters which was signed in by a rousing version of "Spanish Ladies" would'nt it be lovely to hear a similiar programme now? beachcomber (Still not having renewed his membership!)
