Thread Name: Lack of Folk Music on BBC - thoughts
Subject: RE: Lack of Folk Music on BBC - thoughts
Right on your own doorstep WLD both Roy Harris and John Shaw, with all respect to "Folkwaves", did a cracking job presenting folk music to the East Midlands before,it appeared, that their services were no longer required. Hopefully Roy might join in here to tell of some of the trials and tribulations that he suffered in order to play folk music on his programme, as opposed to playing some station manager's preconceived idea of what folk music should be.
