Thread Name: Folkweave radio show from the bbc
Subject: RE: Folkweave radio show from the bbc
"Have any of these Folkweave shows ever been committed to cd?" Yes but only by committed home-tapers. The BBC (actually BBC Radio Manchester) dumped the masters into a skip year's ago. None have ever been formally re-issued. And optical media is useless for archiving to anyway v.v. magnetic media (e.g. original tapes / hard drives / Internet). This latter project is expensive and time consuming - but is gradually being done with the help and generosity of loads of folk around the world especially in New Zealand (thanks Robyn and Mitch!!).
