Despite our feelings folk is seen as a minority interest. Good to see any of it on telly regardless of which channel. Life moves on why worry about which channel it's on. Most people have umpteen channels and the trick is to use them to find what you want to watch. no one can force people into watching they might like just by shoving it onto a "major" channel. All in all it was a refreshing break from the usual shit we get fed. This is a good Friday night slot - next week Kate Rusby. Voice of an angel I think - but I haven't heard enough of her to really have an opinion. I think that the programme was shortened and we missed a lot from what I read in the guardian preview. Nice to see my pal Robin get a standing ovation from Steve Earle etc. Jammy bugger got to sit next to Joan Baez too. I'll just have to content myself with being one of life's losers. That and not being too self important.
