      The Origins of Music Hall Part 2, with John Whitehorn, Maureen Macmillan and Adele Tinman

This is the second of two items on the origins of the Victorian Music Hall tradition. Adele and David talk to John Whitehorn and Maureen Macmillan at the Elmsdale Road studio. The discussion is illustrated with many complete songs and extracts and continues with some of the themes mentioned in Part 1.

A fascinating journey through the evolution of European and American working class life, music and traditions.

This material is available on Audio CD free of charge. Just send a stamped self-addressed padded envelope of suitable size and design to: Music Hall CD Offer, Forest Radio, 55 Elmsdale Road, London E17 6PN.
