Tune 487 - Wednesday Night Polka




A tune a customer played when he picked his box up in my workshop, other than that I know nothing see update below the ABC.

Update:
The composer of this tune Dave Ingledew has been in tough with the folowing info: I wrote it in 1979 when requested 
to record a new signature tune for the BBC Radio Solent folk program. I 
composed it on a Wednesday night, hence the title.

He also added thatAs you will see (from his attached pdf) your source got the tune the wrong way round, the A music is the B music and it has morphed quite a bit from my 
original intention.

I have attached Dave's original version below.
