A musical feast for you today! Our ‘protest song’ workshop has latterly been rehearsing a new song, Si Kahn‘s They All Sang ‘Bread and Roses’, first recorded in 1990 by American folk singer and political activist Ronnie Gilbert (1926-2015), one […]
Yesterday late afternoon, following six weeks of workshops and last Friday a banner-making workshop, we had our first rehearsal in Brompton Cemetery for our processional performance on 21st June of Rise Up, Women! commemorating the centenary of partial suffrage for […]
Still engrossed in Betty May’s “Tiger Woman”, I’m fascinated to learn so much more about the extraordinary bohemian culture of the Edwardian era. The 1960s are remembered for the sex, drugs, and rock’n’roll? the 1900s seem to me to have […]
We really pleased to be publishing a new video, this time María’s fabulous recording of the Mark Sheridan 1911 classic You Can Do A Lot Of Things At The Seaside.
I’m not sure of the date of composition of this fabulous song written and composed by Charles Ridgewell and George A. Stevens, though Mark Sheridan’s original version pre-dates Stanley Kirkby’s recording by at least (I think) a couple of years. […]
An unusual choice this week, prompted by my having recently bought a first edition of Albert Chevalier’s 1901 memoirs, Before I Forget. Chevalier wrote this song, with music composed by his brother Charles Ingle (born Auguste Chevalier), in 1891. It’s […]
Since I missed a ‘Song of the Week’ last week when I was busy with other things, I think you deserve a double treat this week! In the course of yesterday’s event at East Sheen Library I was sidelined into […]
A very enjoyable presentation yesterday at East Sheen Library, Richmond, of The Edwardian Kitchen. I realise we’ve now so much material, both musical and historical, that we cannot possibly pack it into the space of an hour … or two […]
We love this song. So much, in fact, that María has now added it to her repertoire for our ‘holidays and leisure’ theme. Jack Charman sings All The Girls Are Lovely By The Seaside, a very popular song of the […]
One of our most enjoyable concerts to date, yesterday at The Red House Museum in Christchurch. An engaged and really appreciative audience, and great support and genuine enthusiasm from the museum staff. Even an opportunity to contribute to the making […]

We now have the proof CD … and spent this afternoon preparing, photographing, and (of course) eating dishes from the Edwardian recipe book. Now we get down to writing the book.
We love this song. In fact we love it so much that María is now adding it to her repertoire. After all, “a little of what you fancy does you good”.
Radio Days Music had the pleasure and privilege of participating in the excellent commemorative event, ‘The Last Day of Peace’ at Hinchingbrooke House, Huntingdon on Sunday 3 August, under the auspices of Cambridgeshire County Council. As part of a full […]
