GUEST,Frank Hamilton Why is there never Folk on TV? (86* d) RE: Why is there never Folk on TV? 13 Jan 07


Maybe it's a good thing that there isn't more folk on TV. People might find it more fun to make the music for themselves (participation) rather than have it spoon-fed in front of a tube.

It's been my experience that much folk info which makes it to TV isn't very well researched. You get better information on Mudcat.

I don't think folk music needs to be evangelized. There are plenty of people who are making it for themselves, enjoying it and not having it imposed on them from an outside source with an agenda.

I worry more about the media of TV taking over people's minds in exchange for their own personal initiative in making music for themselves.
