Munrow tragically took his own life at 33, but his legacy carries onwards and upwards -- one of his recordings was on the golden disc accompanying the Voyager spacecraft into the heavens in 1977.(edited by the blogger of The Early Music Legend)
...Also, it should be said that the production company ordered the musicians to wear an extra layer of clothing as it was very cold in Salford! Munrow's wife did not apparently see the series at the time when it was aired at the end of 1976... at 9.30 am on Sunday mornings on ITV. Apparently, she still gets some royalties from his recordings, and lives in Hyde Heath. RS/blogger.
