Subject: RE: Child Ballads as Mastermind subject (BBC2)
The NOT guilty man speaks!
Owing to a combination of not being around much over the weekend and my PC being off for repair I only caught up the the programme yesaterday evening. Imagine my surprise when here was another David Sutherland, also from the North East, and answering questions on The Child Ballads. (There will soon be as many David Sutherlands as Tony Wilsons on the folk scene)
However I have to say that my namesake did a sight better than me as I only managed to get seven questions right messing up on "Scarbourough Fair" by completing the riddle rather than the next line and, shamefully as I have lived in Nottingham for the last thirty two years, not recognising the Robin Hood ballads.
Thanks for the compliments but I can't accept them; and Mike my next subject would have been the life and times of either Bob Dylan, Dick Heckstall-Smith or Brian Clough.
