Arrrrrr! Avast ye lily livered scurvy dog! Today's From th' Library takes ye on a journey o' bilge rats, rum, salty dogs an' more rum. Cap'n Edward Pearse gives ye music t' sail yer ship by.

Tune yer listenin' devices t' for a day o' shanties 'n' hornpipes an' some educatin' an' entertainin' ditties.

Let me tell ye why me Roger be so Jolly.

Shipmates, Brigands an' Privateers abound in today`s selection o' music in honour o' th' New Babbage Shipmate Regatta.

So help yersef t' a pint o' rum (sprinkled wi' gunpowder fer th' more hardcore) an' tap yer wooden leg t' th' likes o' Great Big Sea, Th' Dubliners, Th' Irish Descendants, Gilbert & Sullivan t' Tim Curry an' Split Enz. Somethin' in thar fer also sea dogs an' land lubbers.

From the Library is produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with the Caledon Library in Second Life. Today's program was produced by Edward Pearse.
