Subject: RE: Reinstate Mike Harding! campaign song
I was never a fan of Mike's radio presentation style, he talks in superlatives and every single thing is the ' best ever in my opinion, ' but go back to his folk club days and you find a great singer, instrumentalist, songwriter and comedian, he was treated shabbily by the BBC and probably Smooth feckin Operations too.
The bottom line is they wanted someone who the masses were familiar with, not just the folk fans.
