GUEST,Susanne (skw) Where have all the folkies gone? (74* d) RE: Where have all the folkies gone? 14 Feb 22

Piers Plowman, do you live in Germany? Or who told you the yarn about folk music on German radio? Other than DLF on occasion, as far as I am aware they all stopped doing folk music years ago because they found - surprise, surprise - not enough people were interested. We tried in vain to explain that a public station should feel responsible for also (or even particularly) catering for minority interests that the private stations refused to cater for. Protesting when 15 or 20 years ago NDR scrapped their last half-hour folk programme (10.30 pm on a Saturday) got us nowhere, so I have to fall back on my disc collection and the occasional gig or festival. Germany is no folkies paradise!
