Subject: RE: History - BBC's 'Singing Together'
I remember "Darby Kelly" and the "Uist Tramping Song" - that must habe been 1953 or 1954. This was my first introduction to "The Keeper" and "Sweet Nightingale".

I never realised until much later, when I heard Cyril Twwney singing "Sweet Nightingale" on some poxy TV programme, that it was a Folk Song.

It was always my ambition to record a disc of bawdry entitled "Songs Miss Pringle didn't teach us".

Chance'd be a fine thing . . .
