Old farm lore

Each Friday, The Tasmanian Country Hour crew was responsible for a 15 minute radio documentary called Friday Journal.

This piece combines some olde English farm lore with some olde English folk songs recorded at a folk festival.

Cyril Phillips is a former Sussex farmer with a very strong accent. Cyril also sings some of the songs. The result was nicknamed Rae’s revenge as half the audience complained they couldn’t understand a word he said.
