Subject: RE: FolkScene to Sat.
John Davis on KCBH and Les Claypool on KRHM (and Ed Cray on KPFK) were the only folk shows on the raido when I moved to L.A. in 1962. I've spoken to John and he is very upset, to say the least, about his show being canned with 48 hours notice and without so much as a thank you for 33 years of volunteer programming.
Moving Folkscene from the Sunday night slot they have held for over 30 years to early Saturday mornings seems kind of pointless too.
And Preaching the Blues, a show I hosted for over a decade before handing it off to the current host in 1988, is also being shunted off to the "graveyard shift" -- and since the host, Ed Archer, is 75 years old, he will probably not be able to continue doing the show, as it will mean ge gets home at 2:00 a.m.
I hope a lot of people will write to the station.
