First World Problems radio drama
« on: June 14, 2018, 09:45:46 AM »

I've been listening to a radio drama this week called First World Problems. (Apologies to non-UK melnetters). The musical breaks in the drama are often melodeon-based. Anyone else listening to this and can recognise who's playing and what they're playing? Just curious!

The earlier one sounds like a PA.
But I'm sure the one at 13:07 has a fiddle and concertina.
Leveret?
Dr Faustus (with Rob Harbron)?

I was going to suggest the Yetis when I saw it was about David and Ruth.

I'll ask Rob when I see him tomorrow.

In 13:07 it is Leveret playing Down to the Beach from the album Inventions

I caught a snatch and thought it sounded like Tim Van Eyken's box ... but I didn't hear any more.

Yes, I've been listening to it most days this week and there have been many Leveret musical breaks. They are usually only 5-10 seconds long. I think they are all from the third CD, Inventions, but having heard them all while driving in the car, I just recognised them immediately as Leveret but they ended quickly before I could identify the source track.

What are David and Ruth doing in a Radio Drama? They are real living people.  >:(

My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.
