    Ahoy and heave to Bilge.

    I was enjoying your podcast of last week when I heard a familiar sounding song. Tugboat Bromberg singing his version of “Old Black Rum” (yes I like Goslings too).

    This song however was written and recorded by Bob Hallett of Great Big Sea and was featured on several of their albums. Before the lawyers from Warner Music (who probably don’t listen to the show) notice, you may want to pull that one from your play list.

    On the other hand, I just be a simple pirate and don’t understand these things and may be wrong…

    Fair winds

    – yes – it’s a wimpy pirate name, but I have a boat, cannon and your itinerary

    Thanks for the lookout, Floating Bear. Trying to keep tabs on which songs are originals, which are covers, and which are traditional in my field can be tricky, but in this case I’m fairly certain we’re on the safe side. Great Big Sea does many covers of traditional songs, and to the best of my research, Old Black Rum is actually a traditional Irish song, and thus fair game for Tugboat, Great Big Sea, and even Bilgemunky Radio to do with as they will. But still, thanks for the heads up as you never know when something might slip past!
