Since mouth music has been mentioned, I heard something very funny on the
radio the other day (Radio 4, for those of you who know what that means).
Someone was talking about her childhood as a tinker's daughter, and about
her mother being wonderful with the mouth music. The producer of the
programme then saw fit to include a gently playing mouth organ in the
background! Even when the interviewee went on to imitate her mother.
Incidentally, anyone know where the best place (in the UK) to learn mouth
music is?
Yours,
