Dear friends and song collectors,

A quick note to bring your attention to The Song Hunters, a new two-part radio documentary for BBC Radio 4 on song collecting past and present, featuring Sam Lee, Shirley Collins, SCC favourite Freda Black, and many of the participants from our most recent field trip to Ireland (which is the main concern of the second episode, The Age of Extinction).

Both episodes will be available for a limited time on the BBC website, or you can use the BBC Radio iPlayer app. You should be able to listen again from anywhere in the world, although there might be restrictions in a few selected regions that we're currently not aware of. 

Please find links to both episodes below:

The Song Hunters 1 - The Land Without Music

The Song Hunters 2 - The Age of Extinction

With special thanks to Max O'Brien and TBI Media.
