GUEST,John from Kemsing should the BBC folk awards be scrapped (202* d) RE: should the BBC folk awards be scrapped 19 Feb 09

Since they would be seeking information from those who listen to a particular, minority radio programme the responses would be limited.

There is no need to go and record them, all that is required are the peoples selections. Once this has been settled offer the "winners" the opportunity of recording for the programme if it is necessary.

The people who listen to the programme are those that will be interested the results and what the "winners" have to offer.

Everyman/woman and his or her dog ARE the people who support the artists therefore their opinions must be considered paramount.

Regarding budget, if the BBC can vote £18m over three years for a not particularly engaging talking head then surely it could find enough money for a company like Smooth Operations, or any other company, if they don`t fancy it, to come up trumps.

I expected a great deal of objections. Now then, don`t tell me the problems, brainstorm and tell me how you think it COULD work.
