thanks for you comment on my breezy day . status quo were the first group I saw back in 1974 a girl who joined my group of friends had a problem with the wind . she loved the 1970s fashion of stacked shoes and wide flares. we knew her for 6 month before being Invited to her parent house where we found out she was much shorter than she normally appeared in the hallway there were pairs of 7 and 8 inch platforms her true hight was 4ft 7inch so trying move about in a breeze was a difficult rebalancing act
There are a number of ballads from different industries and ways of life and I thought they were well made with the stories and linking songs.. I've no doubt that a lot of the steel from your plant ended up on the ford production lines. I was on maintenance so kept well away from production. I hadn't thought to look on YouTube and will have a look to see if there are more that were missed on Spotify
Hi Dorothy . What you've done sounds like what was used to go with the ballads , but this one was based around the Sheffield steel works with former worker and their families talking about the job, the way of life , the danger and the effect on the family . there are a wholes series of these that were run on radio 2 with ballads in between. I found it fascinating
For a number of years My dad poured molten metal to make engine blocks and told enough horror stories of split molds and accidentally poundings to me out of the foundry but I ended up in fords big Dagenham car plant
Thanks so much for the remarks on the graphite drawing of the biolermaker.....yes I thought he looked like there was an air of confidence about him so I appreciate the background on this skillful trade.
Very interesting to learn about images we find interesting to create into artwork.
