Radi 4's current Book of the Week. The first episode breezed through the rise and fall of calypso. I expect the book, as usual, is heavily edited for broadcast - there was no mention of Lord Beginner's Cricket Lovely Cricket, for example, but I learned that the royals were cool about being lampooned in song, and that Lance Percival was a more gifted calypsonian than I seem to recall.
