Subject: RE: Folkweave radio show from the bbc
There's not many Folk on 2 recordings around. Certainly there's been no reports of any master-tapes around. They might all have been junked without anyone finding out - as was the BBC's want in the 1970s et al. And I don't think the prog. ever made it overseas via the Transcription Service of the BBC / World Service. And so it would not have been recorded by ex-pat. home-tapers. This is unlike the (London) Folk Song Cellar of which a number of recordings still exist. If anyone has any cassettes of any folk progs. we could borrow to digitise of course that would be great.
