Thread Name: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding-Radio 2 Folk
Subject: RE: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding-Radio 2 Folk
The problem with Radio 2 is that it will always seems to be the bland leading the bland. Some weeks I've listened to MH all the way through especially when he has an interesting guest,but as often as not I switch off when he plays the usual 'easy listening' folk... you know who I mean!
How often is real 'music of the people' aired on the radio?
Late Junction has been marginalised to the insomniacs slot. And you have to be lucky to get any folk music on regional radio.
As for me - I'm still angry because Dick Barton Special Agent was taken off and replaced by The Archers....
