Thread Name: Kate Rusby and Radio 2 playlist
Subject: RE: Kate Rusby and Radio 2 playlist
I dont know who lambasted her for being pretty, that is not a crime in my book. I did however criticise [by implication] the cult of beauty over talent that persists in most pop cultures. I can only point out that there are people as good as, or better then Kate Rusby in her musical field, but because she is pretty she will get air time, and they won't. Not her fault before anyone jumps on that comment, and accuses me of disapproving of her looks.
