28th September 1963 - 4th January 1964

A weekly folk music show, hosted by singer Rory McEwan with help from the absolute cream of British folk at the time. Martin Carthy, Iain Campbell, Cyril Tawney, plus a side helping of British rhythm and blues provided by The Cyril Davies' All Stars with guests Long John Baldry and The Velvettes.

Due to the occasional inclusion of visiting American acts like Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Carolyn Hester, Peter, Paul & Mary, Sonny Boy Williams ABC managed to sell the show to Australia and America, which probably accounts for so many extant editions in the vault.
