I covered Radio Derby's axing of its folk programme. Any listener wanting to join me in the protest can write to:

Simon Cornes, BBC Radio Derby. 56, St Helen's Street, Derby DE1 3HY.

And send Lester and Mike a Christmas card. The next song seemed appropriate.

Ian Campbell Folk Group/Peat Bog Soldiers/Voice to the People
Roaring Jelly/Christmas in Australia/Nowt So Funny As Folk
Spooky Men's Chorale/Vote the Bastards Out/Tooled Up

Life and Times/All in The Wintertime/Charivari

Thanks for listening
