Sad to hear this.

It happened to John The Fish's folk programme on BBC Radio Cornwall.

A big protest was organised but sadly the closure went ahead.

We were promised a covering of folk music by other programmes on the station, this hasn't happened.

A letter of complaint resulted in a reply saying "It depends what you call folk music", it seems like the presenters can make up their own rules!

I wish you luck !

Regards

John
