May Day… and much more!

The month of May was come, when every lusty heart begin­neth to blos­som, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees bring forth fruit and flour­ish in May, in like­wise every lusty heart that is in any man­ner a lover, springeth and flour­isheth in lusty deeds. For it giveth unto all lovers courage, that lusty month of May.
~ Sir Thomas Mal­o­ry, Le Morte d’Arthur

7:00pm PDT: Radio Riel Main — Tales from New Bab­bage: The Brown­ie of the Black Hag­gs by James Hogg. Per­formed by Victor1st Morn­ing­ton.

From Wikipedia:
James Hogg wrote in both Eng­lish and Scots. He had lit­tle for­mal edu­ca­tion, and became a shep­herd, liv­ing in grind­ing pover­ty, hence his nick­name, ‘The Ettrick Shep­herd’. His employ­er, James Laid­law of Black­house in the Yarrow val­ley, see­ing how hard he was work­ing to improve him­self, offered to help by mak­ing books avail­able. Hogg used these to essen­tial­ly teach him­self to read and write (some­thing he had achieved by the age of 14). In 1796 Robert Burns died, and Hogg, who had only just come to hear of him, was dev­as­tat­ed by the loss. He strug­gled to pro­duce poet­ry of his own, and Laid­law intro­duced him to Sir Wal­ter Scott, who asked him to help with a pub­li­ca­tion enti­tled The Min­strel­sy of the Scot­tish Bor­der.
