Subject: RE: History - BBC's 'Singing Together'
This is a great thread.
We had 'Singing Together' and 'Rhythm & Melody' at primary school. Tuesdays and Thursdays (I think) but can't remember which one was which. My era was from approx 1953 - 1958.

The wireless was in the headmaster's room and there were extension speakers in the classrooms. We had to remind the head to switch the his wireless on at programme times.

I've jotted down some of the songs I can remember singing from the booklets. I can also remember the excitement at the end of the term/year to find out which song had been voted as the favourite (nationally).

Begone Dull Care
Barbara Allen
The Drummer & The Cook (One Eye In The Pot, .....Chimney)
Dashing White Sergeant
Charlie Is My Darling
The Lewis Bridal Song (Mairi's Wedding)
Loch Lomond
Ye banks And Braes
Caller Herring
All Though the Night
Men Of Harlech
The Ashgrove
----------------------
It would be great if others could list the songs that they remember, especially (for me) from the era above.
