Thread Name: should the BBC folk awards be scrapped
Subject: RE: should the BBC folk awards be scrapped
For a start, R2 outsources programme-making in this area to Smooth Operations which employs a mere handful of people. Where, exactly, will the resources come from to sift through responses from Every Man / Woman and his or her dog about this or that floor performer? Who's going to go out and record them? And who will want to hear them anyway? And what would it be for? The Smoothies wouldn't do it

(a) because they couldn't and
(b) it would lose them their contract in record time.
