Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
"my point is that these awards are elitist, if you think elitism is a good thing to encourage, do not expect me to agree with you.still waiting for an answer from "someone else" which rather proves my point. the sooner these awards aere stopPed The .Better
the BBC WOULD BE USING LICENCE PAYERS MONEY IN A MORE USEFUL WAY[IMO] ,IF THEY PROMOTED FOLK MUSIC IN A NON ELITIST WAY."
Dick, three things: firstly you encouraged another poster to read the thread to find out who your question was aimed at - why don't you read the thread to find out who you asked the question of?
Secondly, have you never come across the concept of aspiration whereby awards encourage others to improve? Probably a foreign concept because you are already a legend in your own mind.
Thirdly, do you pay a BBC TV licence?
