GUEST,Jim Knowledge Censorship-songs of certain folk singers? (58* d) RE: Censorship-songs of certain folk singers? 07 May 18


I `ad that Eric Tebble in my cab the other day looking really down in the dumps. `im as runs the "Pig & Whistle" folk club with `is old woman
I said, "Morning Eric. What are you looking so sad and forlorn about?"
`e said, "Jim, `ave you and your band ever been subject to song censorship?"
I said , "Only once. A club in West London asked us not to sing anything agricultural, you know, goosing and gandering. No big deal. Why?"
`e said, "Well, it all kicked off at the club last night. We `ad a Come All Ye and this bloke came in and sang, " Keep Yer `and on Yer Little Ball of Yarn." Well, `er indoors, who`s just signed up to MeToo took objection to the inferences and told `im to sling `is hook and don`t come back. At this the rest of the people sided with the singer and they cleared off too. This all `appened before the collection and now I owe the landlord twenty quid!!"


Whaddam I Like??
