Subject: RE: Singing/Fishing BBCRadio2 tonight
My argument was just that expressed above - in the only spot dedicated to folk music we got a repeat. The repeat was of something that is available elsewhere. That the original broadcast was good and deserving of note I can only agree with completely - I just don't see why it needed to take out the entire slot.
I don't accept the cost argument: frankly, if you can afford a computer, a phone and to be on the internet then you can afford a CD. For anyone who really is in such a position -think of the good folk music you could have heard instead of this. It is a straight trade-off.
I've noticed that people do complain about repeats on TV....especially since the introduction of video recorders.
