Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
can you answer my question,thankyou?
my point is that There are better ways to give folk music coverage and that giving it that sort of coverage is not as important as improving standards at grass root level.
If I took your argument and extrapolated it to an extreme, that any coverage is necessary,it could be argued why not give folk music as coverage between tooth paste advertisements.
John Manifold, Australian Folk song collector said and I quote "Folk song does not belong between toothpaste advertisements".
If you think it does,or you think these Radio awards are necessary we must agree to disagree.
