Hi All, I'll have to look out for the Britfolk radio programme, and see if we can get Radio Lancashire over this side of the Pennines (doubt it, but I'll look for it on the web).....
I'm sure R2 gets bombarded with stuff to play and yet they/he still manages to play the same stuff week in week out. 10 days ago took the biscuit when he played the latest Kate Rusby/Ronan Keeting (not folk at all) travesty. I too, like the Waterson/Carthy clan, but there are heaps of other great musicians out there playing wonderful music who need an airing much more.
Eric - have to say I hadn't noticed that he didn't mention Whitby since it's def on our hit list for festivals this year since our great mate Terry Free will be there..... catch him if you can.....(not sure if he's a guest or will just be in the pubs, but you'll know him anyway from the pic on the website), but you're right, HOW can you possibly be doing a guide to FF's and not mention Whitby. I reckon MH lives in his own little (insert adjective to your liking) folk world.
