Thread Name: Birmingham 1970
Subject: RE: Birmingham 1970
That makes sense, as apparently BBC Radio Birmingham didn't start broadcasting until 7th November 1970 (see "Loribee's" original post at Folkinfo: Jug o' Punch 1970.

Normally I'd be very critical of irrelevant (and, in the circumstances, crassly insensitive) posts to a serious thread that just happened to mention Birmingham and 1970; Let's be charitable, though; "PA" may perhaps not have read, or had the intelligence to understand, the original message. "duellingbouzoukis", however, has posted the best-written lyric I've ever seen on the subject of a terrorist bombing of innocents. It doesn't belong in this discussion, but it closes an unnecessary distraction with dignity.

Thanks to Barrie, we can now return to the matter in hand.
