Subject: RE: History - BBC's 'Singing Together'

Before tape recorders were popular, we all sat cross-legged in front of the radio in the school hall and sang with it. Later, with tape recorders, it was obviously easier.

Each term there were 10 or 11 songs, which we learned. Some of them would repeat every few years, it seems, but it gave you a fairly large "vocabulary" of folk songs in common - as well as the ones you knew from other sources (like yer mum and dad etc).
