To Folkie Dave,
"There are a number of community radio stations that do folk music programmes. Of the ones I have heard, ALL tend to play a better selection of music Mike Harding.
This is not Mike's fault but that of the remit he is given by the BBC."
Please could you enlarge on the BBC's remit? I've been looking into it and can find all the "educate, inform entertain" stuff but haven't found anything relating to folk music...
