Any repeats expected? Sounds interesting but as so often the Beeb are putting it out when many of us cannot listen.

That is 1:30 pm GMT, right? So, (if I do my calculations right), that's 6:30 pm EST... Right smack during my dinner hour. I'll have my computer on and the volume turned up, so I can listen while I digest.

(BBC Radio4 streams over the Internet. The homepage is here.)

Sorry CapriUni but its the other way round. EST is behind GMT so 1.30pm GMT is 8.30am EST.

Is it not possible to replay such broadcasts after the event via the BBC web-site?

Surely this must be a typical expected benefit.

The BBC blub states that Bob Copper is treasured in the US but unknown in his home land.

It is probably true that people on the street in the UK would be slightly more likely to know Pete's name but not many (if any) would know Bob's.

Durn! I slept through it! Was it any good?

(And Pete Seeger was a family friend when I was young [Mom was president of Clearwater the year they did the first Revival])

Do people generally in the US know who Pete Seeger is?

Yes, Shambles, generally, they do -- at least, they know his name. He's appeared several times as a guest on PBS TV specials, and, maybe even more significantly, on Sesame Street (which is iconic in American culture), so if people were of that age to be a fan of that show in the seventies (in their 30's or 40's, now), they probably at least know what he looks like and that he plays the banjo, even if they don't know all the details of his political work.

How big a cultural figure is he in Britian, generally?

All folkies would know him of course (the 'mad axeman' of Newport). Non- folkies may remember him as he did have minor hit records (Little Boxes).

He would certainly be more likely to be generally known here than Bob Copper would.

I just figured out how to tune in and am doing a test...(good, clear sound)...I hope I can force myself out of bed that early...

I have enjoyed both Bob Copper and Pete Seeger for years, and I wish they were on for more than 30 minutes...but....

Yes, it was a nice program. Hearin' old Pete again reminded of one little detail Bob forgot to mention: There is a saying printed around the circumfrence of Pete's banjo head.

I'm going to be coy now, and post it in BS: Favorite Sayings, 2.

I listened and recorded. ***SG*** (smug grin)
I haven't checked but is the program available on the website for retractive listing? The bbc.co.uk link above will lead you there.

Nice to hear Bob And Pete doing a croaky duo of "Thousands or More" at the end.

It played again a couple of weeks back (on a Sunday afternoon I think), I switched on and caught the last couple of minutes. I don't know if the BBC could provide a copy on tape, give them a try, the worst thay can do is say no.

There's an intereting comment earlier in this thread, saying the BBC blurb refers to Bob Copper being unknown in his own country.To pose a rhetorical question,I wonder which organisation might be responsible for that state of affairs?
