Tim theTwangler Lack of Folk Music on BBC - thoughts (109* d) RE: Lack of Folk Music on BBC - thoughts 29 Jul 07

Great thread so far.
Might I just put in a plea that we dont swap the smooth ops veiw of the world for another equaly excusive one.
A prog for folk should maybe take accound of what is managing to get played on the mainstream progs and avoid them?
I mean maybe if there is a new Steeleye single that makes the play list on radio two a folk show could mention that it is available but instead play something by Tom Bliss or Greg (only picked those for example) and change it around every week I stopped listening to MH because of the constant playing of Folky brass band for weeks on end.
and a certain prepoderance of hull based spin of acts.
I enjoy the music but it is already available elsewhere play something different.
