Dr. John, I couldn't agree more. Many a time I have waited an hour to hear a trad. song played either a) at all! or b) sympathetically. Many a time I have waited in vain (there must be a song in there somewhere). I have to say he has got better of late, but still, nothing like the wonderful Jim Lloyd. Does anyone know what Jim is doing nowadays?

He sings on Deepest Lancashire: excellent CD from Topic. BBC programme is dreadful - don't bother listening to it. It's now (as justification) called folk, roots and acoustic music. Bring back Jim Lloyd I say!

His current book (I think) is walks in the West of Ireland.

This is a site (sorry can't do the clever bit) where there is something from Mike about the Green Man. There is also an email link.

Alison - Mike Harding currently has an hour Wed. nights on BBC Radio 2 (the usual folk slot, 8-9 pm.). So if you're ever back this way, you can listen.
Harding did a tv series cycling round Ireland with his mandolin and meeting old-timers and hearing/playing music.
Once I cycled with a fiddle tied on top of the panier bags (not great for the instrument, but I was lucky) and someone shouted to me as i passed, "Mike Harding went thataway!"

Yes, Alison - it's the same one. I know he's made records and written books, but I can't tell you what they are - but someone out there can ...

I do know he wrote a thriller about a fourteen pound budgie, which was very entertaining but not musical; he also wrote the foreword to the UK version of a US book, a collection of railroad disaster songs (don't know the name of this either!).

How do I ever remember all those songs when I'm singing? Er ...

Hi guys,

Is this the same Mike Harding who used to be on TV BBC2... doing jokes, story telling and singing? If so ... do you know if he has done any recordings? Or written any books? I did a search but couldn't find anything.

Mike Harding was the first person I ever heard do "The Band played waltzing Matilda"... I cried my eyes out....... unfortunately the song has been done to death now.....

Slainte

Did I hear your name mentioned tonight by Mike Harding on the radio.
He said that you were having trouble locating the Transatlantic Session CD,s
I got mine from: ROOTS MUSIC 9 DERWENT STREET SUNDERLAND, SR1 3NT
Tel. 0191 5670196.
They were very helpfull and put the records in the post with an invoice and I didn't have to pay until they arrived.
If this was your request then I hope this helps.
regards Baz.
