songs2play New Folk Programme in Manchester 2 (165* d) RE: New Folk Programme in Manchester 2 16 Jul 03

Ali, I stole the heart from Noreen, and have given it to you (but don't tell Noreen) :0)
I listened to your show last night, again I did really enjoy it. Thanks very much for mentioning the web site and our "Guiding Light" Joan Blackburn - it was much appreciated.
My tastes in music are to say the least varied, but I think the common denominator would be the acoustic guitar. Ranging form country blues from the likes of Blind Blake and Mississippi John Hurt, back in the 1920's/30's, through the 60's/70's when I picked up my first guitar and played along to my heros like Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Ralph McTell, and The Hennesseys. Nowadays there is so much good acoustic music around it's difficult not to say that I enjoy it all.

My one failing is probably not being a great lover of the "finger in the ear fol-de-rol" type of music. I hope that was diplomatically put.

Your show is the ideal listening post for different artists to be "sampled" by the likes of myself, and I normally have a pen ready to make a note of new ones that strike a chord.
Sorry if I've gone on a bit - But keep up the good work and again Congratulations on the news that the show is being continued.
