Thread Name: Child Ballad discussion on WFDU-FM
Subject: Child Ballad discussion on WFDU-FM
This Sunday on WFDU-FM's TRADITIONS I will be talking to Mark Heiman of Loomis House Press. Mark is the publisher of a new "corrected second edition" of Francis James Child's five volume collection of English and Scottish Popular Ballads. (Volume 1 is now available, Volume 2 is scheduled for release this fall.)

We will discuss the life and works of Child and why this collection became such an important work when compared to other collections. I will also play some recordings of ballads that were included in Volume 1.

TRADITIONS can be heard Sunday afternoons from 3 to 6pm in the NYC area at 89.1FM. You can also listen in via the internet through our website at

Hope you can join us!
