The March 2008 edition of Worlds of Trad Internet radio is now uploaded, will be on-line until Wednesday April 9th, and features three hours of the very best in traditional folk, ethnic, world, roots, blues, old time country and early jazz; in fact traditional music from absolutely everywhere.
This month we've an extensive celebration of the centenary of folklorist A.L. (Bert) Lloyd, particularly remembering those splendid Lps which he was responsible for bringing out on the Topic label. Fielding for the Topic revivalists are Bob Davenport, The Celebrated Working Man's Band, Roy Harris, Frankie Armstrong, Louis Killen and Ewan MacColl, whilst Joe Heaney, Paddy Tunney, Jeannie Robertson, Fred Jordan, Willie Scott, Lizzie Higgins, Hedy West, Willie Clancy and Michael Gorman are batting for the tradition. Out on the stumps, there's several tracks from Topic's International series and we've a few songs from Bert himself. There's also an excerpt from The Folk Music Virtuoso, and a song and a dance from the legendary Eels Foot broadcast.
Elsewhere in the programme we remember that 2008 is the centenary of those wonderful Joseph Taylor phonograph records; Mercy Dee Walton and Lil McKlintock complain they can't keep up the payments; the Hokum Boys complain about the neighbours; there's several arguments about lazy people from Carter and Young, Cephas and Wiggins, Seán 'ac Donncha, The Mississippi Sheiks and Con Cassidy. And Andy Cohen complains he's got no money. Come and join the clan.
Also, Vera Hall Ward, Carl Story, Arthur Howard, The Bacup Nutters and the Monty Sunshine Quartet remind us it's Easter, and Louis Armstrong and Chris Droney each play a tune for St Patrick's Day.
There's lots more beside and the full playlist is below. Before that though, a couple of words from our sponsor (me).
First of all, I've been emailed to say that my spoken intros aren't as loud as they could be. I know about the problem and basically it's to do with the fact that Live365 (the station host) equalises the audio tracks when they're uploaded. This month I've set the intros a bit higher. So if anyone is still having problems with the sound levels, please let me know, and tell me which bits you're having bother with.
Secondly, after eighteen months of cruising in the doldrums, Worlds of Trad station stats have taken a sudden and dramatic upturn. Total listening hours have almost doubled in the last couple of months, and more people are logging on and they're staying on for longer. So many heartfelts to everyone who's made it happen. There's several excellent stations on Live365, which showcase specific aspects of traditional music. But as far as I know and believe, Worlds of Trad is unique. It is the only station, on or off the Internet, which samples the grass roots traditional music of all the world's peoples, with no concessions to fads, trends or commercial pressures. Keep listening and keep spreading the word.
To listen to the programme, go to http://www.live365.com/stations/oneworldmusic , and click on the yellow speaker button. If you haven't listened before you'll need to follow the onscreen instructions to download the station player. Then wait a moment for the ads to clear, press the green PLAY button and the station will be on the air.
The music's great, listening is free and I'm glad to receive requests.
Happy listening, and all that stuff,
