Subject: RE: BBC Closes Folk Show
I recently heard from Sarah.Drummond@bbc.co.uk that Radio York will be restoring some kind of folk coverage in their new schedule which may start sometime in July. As a mere guest here, I can't start a thread with a more positive title to announce the news, so I'm posting this here.

I have just written again to Sarah suggesting that it would be good if Radio York were to liaise with the folk community as it plans the show and to restore the features that drew many people to Michael Brothwell's show; if others feel the same, I very much hope that they will e-mail again now in the hope that their suggestions and views might be taken into account when planning the new show.

...By the way, I don't think you can get banned from the Radio 2 Folk and acoustic board, nor have your postings suppressed, for discussing this matter; only putting in certain web links seems to raise their ire. Well, that was my experience anyway...
