Cosmotheka predates my time on the folk scene, although I have seen Dave Sealey on lots of occasions, and we ran the rebooted version of the band featuring Dave and his son at Walthamstow Folk Club a couple of years back.
They inspire real love from the people who remember them. They have a website at http://www.cosmotheka.co.uk
This is an episode of the BBC radio show “Double Tops” recorded off-air in 1988 by my friend Jamie Rowan who sent it to me and which I digitised.
The Two Leslies were a popular British double act of the 1930’s and 1940’s featuring Leslie Sarony and Leslie Holmes. The first part of the opening track is missing.
