Thread Name: Eliza Carthy on the Wireless Radio
Subject: RE: Eliza Carthy on the Radio
I found it ironic that Eliza was giving the history of events that happened before she was born, to an audience many of whom were there and involved in it at the time. No doubt her parents supplied much of the research material and introduced her to the other participants. But no doubt either that she is the right person to present the programme.

I'm not all that bothered about the pace of the programme. This is not Radio 3, and it's a miracle (not to say a blast from the past and a cultural shock) to hear music like this on Radio 2.

I'm looking forward to the rest of the series...
