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

Sorry about the thread creep, Mark....

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