Vince met up with the oldest swinger in town over the airwaves on
9th July 2008
Career He has played the folk circuit for many years, both prior to, and in the wake of, his single chart success. He has also presented many programmes on West Country TV. Wedlocks's albums include The Folker (1971) (notable for the title track parody of "The Boxer" by Simon and Garfunkel), Frolicks (1973), Out of Wedlock (1978), The Oldest Swinger in Town (1981) and Fred Wedlock Live (1982). Wedlock's daughter, Hannah Wedlock, is now a member of the Pigsty Hill Light Orchestra, another Bristol-based outfit, whom Fred made his support band at an early stage of their career. Wedlock's grandfather Billy Wedlock captained Bristol City F.C. and was a regular for England in the early 20th century. The Wedlock stand at Ashton Gate is named in his honour. He lives in Timsbury, Somerset.
