Folk and Blues with Richard Harris

Wrong speed with Joe Thompson

My love of music and tradition has developed into the Folk and Blues Show; I like to play the music that you don’t always hear on the radio especially from artists that put a lot of effort into their music but because they’re not mainstream get very little recognition.
Folk music is a deep routed tradition and culture within Britain that covers such a wide and diverse musical range. I get lots of CDs sent in the post from listeners and PR companies around the globe; I open these up on the show, one of which will be ‘CD of the Week’ in my feature ‘What’s in the post’
In the summer months I celebrate Morris Dancing with ‘The Morris Round-Up’ – ‘For all your Morrissing needs’, and at the end of the show there may even be ‘Time for Tom?’ as Tom Waits for no-one. Just an opportunity to close the weekly show playing a Tom Waits tune.

This show is aired at the following time(s), every week:

– Wednesday between 4 and 6pm
