Songs of Protest - prepared and presented by Paul Jackson. Songs that complain about the state of things.

The Sway of USA - Old & new favourites with a transatlantic bent - prepared and presented by Carole Garland. We look as far back as The Carter Family and to newer fellas like Norman Blake, Eric Bibb and Chris Smither. We also look at the impact of American life on folk artists who spend time in residence there.

Saturday 16th April, 2005
Evergreens - prepared and presented by Patricia Early. A selection of some of the folk songs that will never die, and some of the folk singers that are no longer with us but whose songs still live in our memory.
