      Programme 7

Programme 7 was recorded on the first anniversary of the Grenfell Tower Disaster so we start with a poem about the event: Voice of Truth by Ed Case, and the song Grenfell Tower by Rob Johnson, recorded at the Rose and Crown Folk Club in Walthamstow.

This is followed by an interview with Charlie from Moth Physical Theatre which includes her chosen song Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root.

The next song is Girl Going Nowhere by Ashley McBryde recorded live at the Grand Ole Oprey.

We then have a highly intellectual book review of Eavesdroppings (0.01 from Amazon), followed by Gossip Calypso from Bernard Cribbins and Forest Roundup from Adele.

Next is Nothing's Changed for Me, a particularly heart-rending song of lost love from David Rovic, recorded live at The Brewers Arms in Dalston. V Gudrun's short story is then read by Adele, followed by the 1948 recording of Life Gets Tee-jus, Don't it? by Peter Lynd Hayes.

We then go on Back Garden Safari in darkest Walthamstow, and finish with Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong singing Summertime from Porgy and Bess.
