Subject: RE: BBc defends folk awards
Welcome to the Annual Bitch-fest! People will always complain if their particular favourites aren't chosen. What a actually matters is that someone is being chosen that represents the music that we all sort of like, and if that helps to improve the profile of folk music, then we all sort of benefit. There's a useful cd issue as well that gives us an opportunity of listening to artists we might not have heard that someone must like. So let's agree that on the whole it's a good thing. You'ld have a lot more to winged about if the BBC stopped supporting folk music completely.
