Thread Name: BBC Closes Folk Show
Subject: RE: BBC Closes Folk Show
Folk coverage went from BBC Essex years ago, the explanation was that BBC local radio was concentrating on speech and leaving music to the commercials. The fact that other regions have kept their folk shows up to now suggests that either somebody was telling porkies or you that guys up north have just been lucky with a station too incompitent to implement corporation policy.
