Thread Name: Cool as Folk radio show (PermaThread)
Subject: RE: Cool as Folk radio show (PermaThread)
'Two upsetting pieces of news on the Cool as Folk front:
1) Tomorrow, 9th February, there will be no show. I, sadly, will be at home in Somerset for a funeral, and Fee is caught up at work (as she often is of late!). I'm hoping to get last week's guest co-presenter Andy in to give his rock show a spin, watch the forum for confirmation on that: http://www.coolasfolk.proboards28.com/index.cgi
2) I am sorry to announce that this term will be our last run. What with jobs, lives and wotnot we just aren't able to find the time to do it properly, and we'd rather go out on a high than let it stagger on. Minus next week's no-show, we have only got four more shows to go!
As we'd like to go out with a bang, this is a request to all you artists, promoters, record labels etc. out there. We've always been known for bagging the odd exclusive, from the world premiere of Bellowhead thorugh to unreleased English Acoustic Collective stuff. If anyone would like to send / e-mail us any sneak previews, live tracks, outtakes or anything else rare or unreleased, we would be love to hear from you. And of course, anyone who hasn't quite got round to sending us their albums for inclusion, get on with it!
Finally, it's only right that we thank all of the people who have listened and supported the show. From it's very humble beginnings it's gone on to be quite the little success, more so than either of us ever expected! So thank you to John Spiers, Ian Anderson and all at fRoots, Hilary James, Tim Healey, Roger Watson, Laurel Swift, Jamie Delarre, John Dipper, Steve Knightley, Doug Bailey, our two most hardcore listeners: Diane Easby and Kevin Smith, everyone who has supported us, and everyone who has listened.
Best be off before it gets too Gwyneth Paltrow,
Chris and Fee xx
