A festival of northern dialect poetry and song
Arranged by D. G. Bridson
3-' Yorkshire '
Several weeks ago D. G. Bridson appealed for contributions to ' The Northern Muse', which is now in its second year as a radio festival of Northern dialect poetry and song. This evening's programme will be the third of six recitals. Previous programmes were broadcast on July 17 and 30. In some cases the poems will be set to music and included as songs.
The pianist of tonight's ' Flippant Fingers ' is a young Canadian, who is now an orchestral player in Manchester, where work in the insurance world keeps him busy when he is not playing. Whiteley was well trained in classical music, taking up syncopated playing about two years ago.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
