In this show, as well as some of the latest releases from the folkosphere, we'll be focusing on heroes with a collection of new songs for the season of remembrance, and also with a very special Story Behind The Song, our exclusive feature which briefs you about an historical event which has been memorialised in song - and this month it's an event that didn't just inspire one song but an entire concept album!
