This was on BBC Radio 4 today (Sunday 08/07/01) and will be repeated on this coming Friday.

Did anyone hear her choice of records?

Only two, a romanian female singer, and a wonderful whistle tune by someone who I have heard of but cannot begin to spell was it cormac...
Then we had to go into the shop to buy a bed...radio off......life sucks.

Why do we need two threads on the subject?

thats easy
I did not hear on the Radio who the D I D guest was GUEST, but when I saw a thread on D I D I knew thats who I must have heard. me thinks you could have just linked to the other thread and saved us time???
Why do we need a thread about mystery guests for that matter?

Her 6th choice, "The Joy of Living" was poignant and summed up their relationship exquisitely.

Her introduction of 'Joy of Living was so moving - it's a long time since I had a tear in my eye from a radio prog. One thing that intrigued me was her comment that she didn't consider herself a folk musician because she was 'too well educated, musically'. I'd be interested to know what others think - not about whether or not Peggy Seeger is a folk musician, but whether being musically educated and a folkie are mutually exclusive.

Having missed the programme (but hoping to tape the repeat) . . I'd suggest Peggy's comment is partially true (it's harder to become a "folkie" if you only move into folk music after "completing" a formal musical education), partly a reaction to Ewan's intense pride in his being self- (rather than formally-) educated, and partly an illustration of her taking a narrower view of "folk" than is usual these days; i.e. her taking a very "tradition-centred" view.

Remember, in her youth, there was still a lot of collecting from "source" performers - in the US and parts of the UK . . . She wasn't a "folkie" in the way those performers were; as, arguably, no clasically-trained musician could be.

One of the Dubliners, sorry I can't remember which one, was once asked whether he read music or was he a real musician?
