Subject: RE: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy
quote[if and i repeat if the stories of bbc financed tapesgoing missing from the EFDSS then whoever was responsible does not deserve respect whether he or she is recently departed ] since this cant be proven its better not to mention it, even by mentioning it doubts are raised against peoples character ,it is totally unfair.[ innocent until proved guilty]
   Rod Sradling has previously attacked Nic Dow on a simliar vein, you do not deny this, wehich makes me suspicious of Rods motives.
   anything that Peter Kennedy did or didnt do needs to be taken in context with the time and attitudes he was operating [ Just like Cecil Sharp]under.
I agree the dubbing on of accompaniments was a mistake, but overall his legacy is a plus. can we not remember the better sides of people . what point does it serve raking over events that happened nearly fifty years ago, and really relatively unimportant events ,talk about tilting at windmills. Rod is becoming the Don Quixote of the folk scene.Dick Miles
