IdeasTap: Little Red Wagon (Rangecroft Family vs. Jack Arthur)

Like a lot of parents, my dad read stories to me when I was little. Unlike a lot of mums, mine recorded it on to tape.

In this piece, the Rangecroft family’s version of the children’s story ‘Little Red Wagon’ meets Jack Arthur’s musical version.

Ours was recorded on to cassette in 1988 when I was two years old – Jack Arthur’s was recorded on to Shellac in 1946 when my dad was two years old.
