This program's right up my corridor -- :) -- so I pointedly arranged it on my schedule.

Shirley Collins Saturday at last! Loving all the British folk revival stuff so far. Did not know about the documentary.. thanks for mentioning it, Jeffrey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/19/14 6:39am Wynford Eagle:

makes me proud to be english - checking in from the wilds of west dorset - great show jeffrey
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 6:40am kat330:

I should amend, up *one* of various different corridors in my wheelhouse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/19/14 6:47am testingwithfire:

I just visited the Kickstarter page... that doc sounds like it will be wonderful if it gets made. Shirley's return to public life (to whatever extent that is) is such an unexpected pleasure... never thought I'd see it.
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 7:02am kat330:

Whoa, a lot of throwing down of the DJ gauntlet in that mic break! ;)
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 7:13am kat330:

Charming accompaniment on "Lancashire Lass."
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 7:20am dale:

love the sound of her voice, gothic, far away and sad. like karen dalton without all the cigarettes. jacqui mcshee could get there sometimes.

i have this prospect before us record and never bonded with it. need to relisten.
  Sat. 7/19/14 7:25am Marmalade Kitty:

Loving the show Jeffrey..I once heard a folk music hour dedicated to a wonderful female artist from the late 60's early 70's folk revival, unfortunately the name has since been erased from my memory!? I have no idea, i don't listen to enough folk music to short cut a search either :(
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 7:28am kat330:

Enjoying the blues touch on the guitar here. Davy Graham, I presume.
  Sat. 7/19/14 7:30am Jack:

@dale - great comment.
  Sat. 7/19/14 7:39am Marmalade Kitty:

folk never really goes away does it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 7:40am adrian in mpls:

because the folk still persist
  Sat. 7/19/14 7:48am Marmalade Kitty:

There is a place in the netherlands called Diemen
Tasmania named after the Dutch sailor Abel Tasman was once known as Van Diemans land, the British penal colony
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 7:52am glenn:

darn. how much of the interview have i missed?
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 7:53am kat330:

10 mins. or so.
  Sat. 7/19/14 7:54am Jack:

Jeffery, thank you so much for this, and (as always) the music. You're a good interviewer! This show is definitely a keeper.
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 7:55am dale:

mr deejay - could you track down carole ann pegg? another great who just sort of dropped out.
  Sat. 7/19/14 7:55am Jack:

sorry - "Jeffrey"

...most grateful for Archiving: this is extraordinary - congrats DJ JD...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/19/14 8:08am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...a friend/acquaintance from Belfast w/ an interesting history told me about 'Van Dieman's Land'. Also a U2 song by that name...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:12am Jeffrey Davison:

Thanks to the wonderful and brilliant Scott Williams for technical support on this session.
  Sat. 7/19/14 8:16am Jack:

@dale again. Thanks! Never heard of Carole Ann Pegg, now I'm fascinated.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:18am Jeffrey Davison:

Many of the recordings that Lomax and Collins recorded during their trip together are available on CDs from Smithsonian Folkways. An absolutely essential collection of American music from a time that has long vanished.
  Sat. 7/19/14 8:18am tranewreck:

Great and revealing interview.
Surprised by Collins' comments about Dick Gaughan's accent
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 8:23am dale:

cool jack - i'll have to give a listen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:26am Jeffrey Davison:

Reference the photographs of the great Walker Evans for depictions of poverty in the southern USA, albeit from an earlier time, the 1930s.
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 8:26am dale:

mr. fox has had fair play on fmu. i have their record 'he came from the mountains', which is just billed as bob and carole pegg
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:26am TDK60:

Interesting to hear this. I lived in Appalachia for a long time. It's got its dark side. Some folks suspicious. It has been exploited from outside. But then there's a friendliness too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:27am Jeffrey Davison:

Shirley Collins does comment on the generosity of many of the people they met on their journey.
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 8:28am kat330:

I was part of a youth group who went to Hazard, KY, to paint a 2-room schoolhouse and have activities with the children -- an eye-opener to the poverty of the area. That was late 60s, but still plenty of poverty in the U.S.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:30am Jeffrey Davison:

Even in New York City, a very rich city, something like 20% of the population lives below the poverty line, and many others live just above that line and are still essentially poor.
  Sat. 7/19/14 8:30am Marmalade Kitty:

capitalism = poverty
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/19/14 8:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- hell - here in NorthNewEngland now it's not impossible to go down the wrong road & pull in the wrong drive & be 'greeted' by 'an NRA supporter' feeling territorial...
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 8:30am glenn:

except for the capitalists.
  Sat. 7/19/14 8:33am Marmalade Kitty:

Poverty affects everyone. no place to hide
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 8:35am dale:

logging out but the radiola will continue. GREAT interview, and shirley sounds like a genuinely lovely person.
  Sat. 7/19/14 8:39am Marmalade Kitty:

Bee poverty
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:39am Jeffrey Davison:

Wikipedia link to the book that Shirley mentions: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:40am TDK60:

Yes, in Appalachia, along with poverty, in the 1960s-'70s, was a great revival of Appalachian music and culture, much of it derived from England, Scotland, Ireland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/19/14 8:42am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

It's forgotten how much Capitalism came into question when the Depression hit & before WWII. ow - even some (not too many) 'Conservative' Wall Street types have begun to ask what Wealth really is. Is it a system based on always higher & more (like the Dow) - or is it clean water & air, topsoil & apple trees ? Robert Kennedy said it all...
  Sat. 7/19/14 8:44am tranewreck:

Seduction of the Innocent was an insidious diatribe on the danger of comics that drew on some bogus studies and gave weight to the Comic Code and censorship
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:45am TDK60:

Just wondering, is there a record shop in the NYC/Nj area that specializes or at least carries some of this great UK folk on LP/CD?
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 8:45am glenn:

cape breton is beeyootiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:46am Jeffrey Davison:

There is no record store that specializes in this music, but Still Records from Northampton Mass has lots of US and UK/Irish folk. The WFMU record fair is also a good place to find these albums.
  Sat. 7/19/14 8:48am Marmalade Kitty:

cartoons have as much potential as any media source to influence it's subjects
  Sat. 7/19/14 8:49am Marmalade Kitty:

I have not read the book. Thanks for the link
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:50am Ken From Hyde Park:

This certainly is a wide-ranging interview. Very captivating. Thanks for bringing her into our lives.
Avatar Sat. 7/19/14 8:53am kat330:

@Jeffrey: Thanks to you and Scott for the interview and today's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 7/19/14 8:54am Jason:

Really enjoyable interview, thanks Jeffrey.

Thank you Jeffrey & Shirley!
