Sorry, but I got only half the program before I had a network error that broke the connection. And the sound quality is not very good, but that's due to the limited bandwidth the BBC has selected. The first song is about the worst for sound quality, so you might want to stick with it a bit. Supposedly, programs are available on the BBC site for a week after broadcast, but the "Listen Again" links don't take me to anything I have been able to listen to.

Google found another link to The Merrie Fellowes on Saturday 18 June 2005 with a playlist. This appears to be a rebroadcast of that show. (My mp3 file goes as far as Eccles' My man John.) [] marks album references — the program isn't entirely The Merrie Fellowes.
