Hosiprog (Free Radio Drama)

Free Radio Drama

Hosiprog was founded by the late Dennis Rookard to create and provide drama and features for hospital radio, audio magazines for the blind and community radio stations.

      “The bells gave tongue; Gaude, Sabaoth, John, Jericho, Jubilee, Dimity, Batty Thomas and Tailor Paul, rioting and exulting high up in the dark tower, wide mouths rising and falling, brazen tongues clamouring, huge wheels turning to the dance of the leaping ropes.
      “Tin tan din dan bim bam bom bo – tan tin din dan bam bim bo bom – tin tan dan din bim bam bom bo – tan tin dan din bam bim bo – bom – tan dan tin bam din bo bim – bom – every bell in her place striking tuneably, hunting up, hunting down, dodging, snapping, laying her blows behind, making her thirds and fourths, working down to lead the dance again.
      “Out over the flat white wastes of fen, over the spear-straight, steel-dark dykes and the wind-bent, groaning poplar trees, bursting from the snow-choked louvres of the belfry, whirled away southward and westward in gusty blasts of clamour to the sleeping counties went the music of the bells – little Gaude, silver Sabaoth, strong John and Jericho, glad Jubilee, sweet Dimity and old Batty Thomas, with great Tailor Paul bawling and striding like a giant in the midst of them.”
      [from “The Nine Tailors” by Dorothy L Sayers]
      We devised this programme - twenty-five minutes of words and music inspired by English church bells - for Chelmsford Folk Club in the late 1970s. The recording - made separately, without an audience - was made by Dennis Rookard for the Essex Radio folk programme.
      We apologise for the variable sound quality.
