How many of the contributors here have listened recently? The Planxty Davis played over charts stopped years ago.
As a regular listener, I think it's definitely time for a change. Mike does a fair job but his aphorisms grate after hearing them week after week - grubby little mitts, one of the best ever, etc. Mark Radcliffe is an interesting choice, and I look forward to giving him a chance.
Regardless of who hosts it, a Radio 2 folk programme is guaranteed to plough the middle of the road. T'internet is the place to hear more radical stuff.
