    Excellent. Heard it mentioned by Cerys on her 6music show this morning but didn't catch when it was on. Thanks

      Just posted this on Rotatey Diskers....might have known a VG+er would have got there already! Chanced on it perusing the Sky menu....

      10pm: BBC Four tonight (Sunday)
      1/4. The Big Bang: Series telling the stories of the pioneers of American roots music. The 1920s saw record companies travel rural America to record the music of ordinary people.

      I'm guessing interesting stuff about Ralph Peer / Okeh etc.. Might be of interest to anyone who has read Mazor's book on Peer, Petrusich's book on 78 collectors or Wald's - Escaping The Delta....
