John has suggested 2 links that may be of interest to our readers and participants of the Folk Club.
The first is a weekly BBC folk music programme.
This is an hour long radio programme broadcast live on Wednedays at 20:00 hours on BBC Radio 2 and available over the internet with BBCi Player (based on REAL player) for up to a week later. It is called "The Mike Harding Show" and is produced by Mike Harding, a jolly old folker if ever there was one.
Click on "listen now" half way down the page on the left hand side to listen to it. A track list is also available.
"Show of Hands" a British acoustic trio currently touring Germany. Click on the video of the award winning song about the financially smitten insurance giant "AIG"
aptly renamed "Arrogance Ignorance and Greed"
The third link here is my favorite country music station B104.7 broadcasting from Syracuse, New York. This station is my information source for the contemporary country songs that I sing at the Folk Club such as "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven". You will certainly be hearing some more of the country music top 40 in the months to come. Enjoy!
Just hit "Listen Now" to get it going!
PS. If you hear any song that you really, really like, let me know and I will try to sing it. But, I just can't do "Stand By Your Man" ;-)
