There are all too few programs today of this type and consistent standard [ as were Old Grey whistle, The singer and the song?] I love this, as I have all others, Always a pleasure to hear others perspective of one of my own favorites, repeated later, and thankfully online.

I love 'Soul Music' on R4 and have learnt so much about the songs and the artist/writer. One week a particular song ran through the life of footballer Paul Gascogine's sister, it was an incredibly moving and fascinating insight into the people and families affected by having a famous/infamous brother.

Here's another from 2017  Wink

**  Maybe this should be split from this thread and recommended episode's for listening have a thread of its own once you've trawled through the hundreds of series and episodes that there are!   Huh

WEll, well....a very late night for those wishing to listen to this on broadcast.....

Ralph McTell at 75

Quote
Saturday 12 October
2.00am-3.00am (I think this is tonight!)
BBC RADIO 2


Ahead of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards being held in Manchester on Wednesday 16 October, Radio 2 celebrates one of folk music’s most influential singer songwriters.

Streets Of London is surely one of the most famous folk songs ever in the UK. It is the one folk song that almost everyone has heard and can name-check. As he reaches his 75th birthday, its composer, Ralph McTell discusses his life and career and chooses the songs he’d most like to be remembered for writing.

Presented by author and journalist Mark Hodkinson, the programme features a brand new, arresting interview with McTell, who talks in depth about his childhood, his absent father, the song-writing process, his influences, successes, regrets and his legacy.

Ralph is also asked to choose the three songs from the hundreds he has written that he would most like to be remembered for, including Lost Boys, a song that laments the hypocrisy of how society views its young men.

Ralph McTell’s brand new album, Hill Of Beans, sees him reunited with legendary producer Tony Visconti - known for working with David Bowie - who was there at the beginning of Ralph’s recording career. The latter-day reconnection came about after a chance meeting on the streets of London, or London’s Marylebone Road to be specific.

Ralph will round off this landmark year with a special 75th birthday concert at the Royal Festival Hall on 13 December 2019.
Presenter: Mark Hodkinson
Producer: 7digital


For everyone else, it's either iplayer/Sounds app or record!
