From me to you/ Here’s Part Two/ Of Taboo be Doo

As the depressing saga of Opera North’s censoring of Beached by Lee Hall and Harvey Brough shows (more in my Independent comment piece), there’s nothing new in music causing trouble. With almost perfect timing, the second part of my investigation into political incorrectness and the music of the past 100 years, Taboo be Doo, has just been broadcast on Radio 4 and is now on iPlayer.

Frank Zappa, Bing Crosby, Ekow Eshun, Craig Brown, AN Wilson and the (brief) radio debut of my song  Sad Old Bastards with Guitar can all be heard here.
