Subject: RE: Jim Moray- new face of folk? BBC R4 now
Ah well- good coverage of folk issues anyway on a mainstream, prime-time (after the Archers!) radio prog. They mentioned PEL issues and folky stereotyping problems quite sympathetically.

But Jim Moray doesn't sing in a traditional style. He has a mid-Atlantic style, I suppose, rather than the accent. Is this the only way to make traditional songs popular?

No-one else hear it?
