Subject: RE: Eliza Carthy on the Radio
Just caught it archived on the BBC site. Enjoyed it very much.

I felt the Christy Moore track from Prosperous was slightly out of place in this prgramme. Only in that it was, I felt, a little later in time (1972 IIRC) than the period covered by the rest of the programme. I wouldn't disagree that it is an important album but not, as stated, in the "early" years of the revival. Nor would I disagree that Christy is an important character in the early years, but Prosperous was his third album, and that part of his career would I feel have suited a later programme.

I didn't find Eliza's presentation a problem and am looking forward to next week, or the archive if I forget again.
