Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
What is your question, Dick? There were a number a couple of posts ago and I don't propose to answer them all.

To come back on your last point above, folk song has been used in many adverts including a concertina playing fisherman. For Youngs fish products I think. I do not know if it ever appeared before or after an advert for Colgate but chances are it did at one time. I for one have never said the awards,(be they Radio or TV) were necessary but I cannot think of a reason not to hold them. Can you?
