Thread Name: what's a rant?
Subject: RE: what's a rant?
The BBC either ignore traditional english music or they treat it as a joke. They do much the same with our traditional customs. They are ignoring the revival of interest in folk music much as they ignored the pop music revival of the sixties. The only folk programme they put on Radio 2 is designed to keep an audience - not promote folk music - thus it tends to be bland.

That's a rant.
