    Thank you…this will be an interesting listen, as well as the others you’ve passed on re: Titanic. But, as always I love what you write each morning, more so!

      You are welcome, Mary. I actually had these songs already in my files just waiting for today.

      I appreciare the comments about my writing!

    A friend who’s a librarian (and, as it happens, a folkie), prepared this website that shows the influence of passengers’ shipboard status on actual survivorship: http://www.ithaca.edu/staff/jhenderson/titanic.html

      Fred,
      That was intriguing. What happened to women and children first? There were so many sailors on the lifeboats I wonder if they just pushed the passengers out of the way.

      Thanks for that site!

    Check out Tom Russell’s song: Jack Johnson and the verse about the Titanic, as well as his reference to Leadbelly!
