Music of the week

A word of explanation:  Back in the early 1950s, we baby boomers experienced the Welfare State via (a) cod liver oil, a spoonful of which served as a curative for all sorts of ailments, including coughs, flu, constipation and even broken bones, and (b) so-called orange juice, which came in a glass bottle with a blue top and which tasted nothing like modern orange juice (but we were none the wiser, as few of us had ever seen an orange let alone tasted one) but which was generally regarded as having health-giving properties.
