A pocketful of songs
Posted by Margaret Bradford  on 5 February, 2011
I see you are still writing and playing. Good on you. I see your name on a lot of peoductyions for the ABC . I have done a lot too since you acompanied me on guitar at Woolstonecarft for that ABC TV show quite a feww years ago now. You may remember?
You must be quite busy, but I have a web site if you have time to browse. www.margaretbradford.com) My Bindi-eye Bop CD I did of children's songs has been quite popular too. I am about to put it into CD/book format and have found an ideal illustrator.
I have five grandsons now and they are all into music. (aged 16 down to 3)
The three year old loves your "A pocketful of songs" recording. I still have it on tape. he sings it with me in the car.
Hope you and family are all well.
