Thread Name: Folklore: New Scottish Storytelling Internet Radio
Subject: RE: Folklore: New Scottish Storytelling Internet Radio
I was excited to hear "Monday Tuesday". I learned a version of this story from my father - I don't know where he learned it from. He called it "The Humpy Backed Man". In my father's version, the song sung by the little people has more of a singable melody, which I use to get the audience to participate.

I'm looking forward to hearing more of these Scottish stories. Again and again I find myself grateful to the Internet so I can indulge in these folkie pleasures.
