FOREGROUNDING at BBC Radio Cumbria.
John Hall researched the contents of the station's vinyl collection and playing some of his findings on the
Gordon Swindlehurst show. There were 8 broadcasts, here's a couple of excerpts where you can hear some of the findings, which include the Los Angeles Gospel Choir, a 3 year old Vietnamese Folksinger, Ron Geesin, Petula Clarke, Scott Walker, Bill Oddie and others.. .
Thanks to Gordon ( right, below), Jennie Dennett , Richard Nankivale and Graham Marsh at The BBC for setting this up.
