Subject: RE: Ballad of the North West
Interestingly enough, I believe the Bull's Head in Failsworth where we hold the Open Door Folk Club was where Harry Boardman first ran a club. Keep us up to speed on this, Mark - - it sounds interesting.....

Incidentally, I've just had an e-mail from Mike Shaft, the Assistant Editor for GMR in reply to a query I made about the possibility of a folk programme on the station. He said they'd 'love to have a folk programme', the matter had been discussed and they hope to have one when a 'time-slot' becomes available. It would be nice if other local 'catters could contact Mike and show an interest in this...he can be contacted at mike.shaft@bbc.co.uk

Sorry about the thread creep, Mark....

All the best................Harry Basnett.
