Thread Name: BBC Closes Folk Show
Subject: RE: BBC Closes Folk Show
I am sad to hear of this, and will be writing to complain. I know Henry, and have listened to his show for many years. Indeed, when I first ventured into a folk club, his show was my main source of material. I would learn a new song each week, then sing it at the club. Without it I would have struggled, at the time being a non-folkie. They have removed his show from the airwaves before, but it was reinstated. With any luck we may be able to do this again. I urge anybody who listened to his show, which was broadcast on several BBC local networks all over the North of England, to write, aand write, and write until the BBC sees sense.

Good luck to Henry. Cheers, Pete.
