Subject: RE: Thank Goodness It's Folk - Radio
Once again, for the benefit of the other podcast listeners like myself, I'm providing an update on how to find the TGIF podcasts on the Sheffield Live web site. Thus update describes the way things seem to be working on Sunday, 3 October; clearly, things are not optimal, and we can hope that there will be future changes to correct the problems. I'm sure that [folkie]Dave is not the source of this problem, which also affects other shows on Sheffield Live; that makes me optimistic that someone is working on fixing it.

This was the previous link, and it no longer works:!

Without the exclamation point at the end, it now almost works. If you use this revised blue clicky, you will not get immediately to the latest episodes of TGIF, but you will get to a retrochronological list of everything the station has broadcast recently. If you scroll back in time to the appropriate Friday morning, you should find the show you want.

If you try to go in from the top, starting at the home page at, clicking on "Schedule", and then "Friday", scrolling down to Thank Goodness its Folk, and then clicking on the link to Programme Archive, that doesn't help: it just activates the obsolete URL with the exclamation point at the end.

Having invoked [folkie]Dave's name, let me now thank him very much for producing this show. The mix of music (not surprisingly) reminds me of what I'd hear at a trad-oriented English folk festival like Whitby. Living in Toronto, Canada, I get to attend such a festival only on rare occasions, and I'm grateful for the carbon-friendly alternative between those occasions.
