Hello EC

The Prosperous comment was minor, although I hadn't realised that the show was covering to 1974 so it does fit, but it did seem well apart from the rest in context. Still, I know you weren't there yourself like us oldies.

I guess that any impact earlier than one's own experience is dificult to quantify except by information passed down or read about. although ancient, my own involvement is later than the "real" early revival so my own perception of what the scene was like in the Ballads and Blues and Bif Bill Broonzy days relies on other peoples recollections, or else I just ask Reg Hall!

Great stuff, see you at Sidmouth.
