GUEST,Kernow John BBC Radio2 folk website: the best? (25) RE: BBC Radio2 folk website: the best? 28 Jun 01

I have to agree with the comments about the programme.
Far to much C&W, not enough English folk music and song and far too few performers. Seems to be the same few re-cycled.
I mention English folk music and song as the Scots and the Irish seem to have much better folk programmes already promoting their own national music. Not sure about the Welsh but would like to know especially of any on-line broadcasts.
As far as the site goes I think it's OK. Mudcat is far, far better as a folk site, but can someone tell me of others that are better than the Beeb one. I don't just mean lists of tunes and or words useful as they are but a site that covers the artists, the music and record reviews. I'd like to visit them.
Regards KJ
