Subject: RE: Why do folk music radio programs fail?
Guest 999, Were you referring to me??...and why so?, if you were? The fact is, that 'folk' music was 'popular' for a short time, then turned into cliches. Do you think I am glad to see that happening??...N-O-O...but a lot of singer/songwriters/players have fallen down and have stopped innovating. I think they are trying to re-live their past, and wanting for it to come around...again!...but really, after some of the SUPERB artists of that time, you'd think that to keep it alive, we would need to CREATE more, instead of wishing for the 'good ol' days'...and blaming the audiences for NOT understanding the enjoyment WE HAD, discovering all that, for the first time. Let's focus on giving them something NEW, for the first time, as well!
