I don't think I'm wrong in saying that we don't get Folk Music on TV (Satellite or otherwise)in the UK. Transatlantic Sessions was the last thing. Occasionally Jools Holland has a token folk artist on, but you have to listen to a lot of shite just to hear one song..I'm thinking of Linda Thompson..a few weeks back and that wasn't exactley brilliant. We haven't even been able to get CMT for the past 5 years or so....since they decided to leave Europe and concentrate on the 'Asian Market' whatever that meant !!!
I also notice that if I tune into channels 800 onwards on Sky Digital there is a wealth of Asian programs to be viewed. I'm not racist and hope I haven't appeared that way.. I actually have enjoyed some of the music and videos that I've seen on those channels. But is it too much to ask to have folk music or even C/W represented?
going to bed before I write something even more stupid.
