Well yeh but......

40 years on - haven't we learned anything?

Bernard Wrigley. Wouldn't you rather see him than Dolly Parton strumming indifferently?
The songwriters....Alan Bell, John Conolly, Pete St John, jeremy Taylor.

is there footage of Peggy and Ewan?

there again the groups like The Yetties, and Ian Campbell's group - that inspired so many of us. Weren't they worth an hour's programme.

Some of them could be got now - many of them could have been got in the last fifteen or so years whilst they've been promoting Bunkum. When your great grandkids tell you they know all about music in the 1970's, 80's, 90's, the noughties ...they've seen the films of Kajagoogoo and Sigue Sigue Sputnik and they'll on the mainstage at Cambridge next year - you'll can only blame those buggers at the Beeb.
