Richard & Linda Thompson concluded the show.

Don't know what the "comedy" bit was doing under the subject heading of "Electric Folk". OK, I know why it was there (the series is, after all, a Smooth Ops production)...

Given the extraordinarily difficult task of balancing all aspects in just 30 minutes though, I felt that Mr Fox as well as Pentangle/COB/Dransfield (indeed the entire Jo Lustig stable whatever you might think of his management style) really should have been in there instead.

All in all, Eliza's presenting style had gained a lot in confidence since last week. You can "listen again" here for the next 7 days,
