bigJ BBC Radio Ballads by Ewan MacColl/Chas. Parker (40) RE: BBC Radio Balads by Ewan McColl/Chas. Parker 06 Dec 98

Yes, the radio ballads were released in England on the Argo label, a division of Decca, but nothing is available these days as far as I know. The one about young people was never released I don't think; it was called 'On the Edge' - another, never released, was about people with polio and how they coped. I think that was the last radio ballad before the BBC decided that they were 'uneconomic' - inasmuch as they were costing about the same as a halh-hour TV variety show.
