folk in the 1960's was quite cutting edge. folk music was in the charts.
and nothing succeeds likw success.

other people want a piece of your success and want to be associated with it.

The Tonight programme featured folksingers every night, the god slot tv used to have folksong competitions about sings of social concern. there was the john pearse hold down a chord series evcourading and teaching folk guitar. the tea time local news frequently showed folk music. there were a few fairly dire tv programmes shown in the early evening - one i recall called hullaballoo.. pete seeger played sunday night at the london palladium.

it was in the air.
