Country Meets Folk

BBC Radio 1
9 Dec 1968

John appeared on this program several times but it is unclear in what capacity. No tapes have been preserved. The apparent concept of this show is rather similar to that behind the Transatlantic Sessions from the nineties.

Country Meets Folk was an old Light Programme show and first aired in July 1967. It was a replacement for the half hour A Cellar Full Of Folk.
Both programmes were produced by Ian Grant. Host was Wally Whyton, assisted by Jim Lloyd who presented the folk and country news.

Host: Wally Whyton

Big night for the Blues

A rave is in store for Glasgow's folk and blues fans in the Woodside Halls tomorrow night. The star of the show, titled BLUES FOLK, is John Martyn, a young Glasgow singer-composer whose songs have made a big impact on the national folk scene. Many well-known performers including Julie Felix are considering John's songs as possible recording material.
