Thread Name: Petition - folk on BBC radio
Subject: RE: Petition - folk on BBC radio
I think Mr. Harding knows a lot about 'the real grass roots folk scene' but he's only the presenter - the programme is put together by the production company, and it's made for national radio, so it focusses on national and international performers and the more commercial aspects of folk.
Local radio has a different agenda and that's why we want to keep it.
