Interesting point Dick made about less Woody Guthrie songs being sang when people began reverting to their own accents. I guess those people picked up on their own local songs, but a shame to miss the Guthrie anyhow.

My view on accents is they're one step away from wearing a C.U. Jimmy or cowboy hat. At best they're unnecessary, at worst, comical, distracting and even offensive...
