Subject: RE: Lack of Folk Music on BBC - thoughts
Dave, can you set your sights just a bit higher than 'let's have an hour or so more of X or Y's poxy DJ programme? What's transmitted now on local radio, dwindling as it is, is scarcely either cutting edge or comprehensive. Most people could do far better themselves from their own CD collections.

The BBC is, supposedly, a Public Service Broadcaster and should be held to it. Norway, for example, has a 24-hour, dedicated national trad music channel:

NRK Nettradio

We should aim for this too, or better still, one each for the English regions.
