Thread Name: Lack of Folk Music on BBC - thoughts
Subject: RE: Lack of Folk Music on BBC - thoughts
Quality of recordings from live venues didn't seem a problem when the BBC was recording live from folk clubs every week on "Folkweave" in the mid 70s.
That was a really great programme. Had a variety of stuff ... amateur performers, professional club "guests" live, recent records, special articles to go with the seasons or particular traditional singers ... everything.
