Labour history in song and yarn

Issue 

Labour history in song and yarn

A cassette of folk songs and yarns celebrating the shearers' strike of 1891 is one of a series of eight cassettes available from ABC Radio Tapes.

A spin-off from the weekly program Songs and stories of Australia, the series also includes a program focusing on the lives of migrant coal miners from Wales, Scotland and northern England.

A forthcoming series of cassettes will include a program of material inspired by the Blue Mountains from Denis Kevans (an occasional contributor to Green Left) and Sonia Bennett. Songs and Stories of Australia, a mix of poetry, music and anecdotes, is broadcast on ABC FM each Friday at 11.30 a.m. and repeated on Saturday at 7.05 p.m.

The tapes are available individually or as a set. For more information call ABC Radio Tapes on (02) 394 1034.
