Thread Name: Why do folk music radio programs fail?
Subject: RE: Why do folk music radio programs fail?
What do you mean by 'fail'? Good programmes which attract a following get taken off because they somehow fail to meet the broadcaster's agenda. Other programmes carry on because they bring in a substantial audience, even though they may fail to connect with a sizeable number of folkies.
Success or failure is decided by the broadcasters, often for reasons which have nothing to do with musical content, rather than the wishes of the audiences.
