The BBC Trust is carrying out a public consultation on music on Radio 2 and Radio 6. If you're not happy with their coverage of folk music (or even if you are) here's your chance to say so by taking part in an online survey on the Trust's website:

"a new John Peel for Radio 2!"

I'm a bit young to remember John Peel, but my dad remembers the days of Top Gear and Peel's continued championing of bands he thought worthwhile. Peel's famous quote dismissing the mainstream output of the BBC's pop music station as "incredibly predictable porridge" still stands to this day.
check this website out, it's produced by William Ravenscroft, JP's son
Unpredictable Porridge

Done as to R2. I cannot comment on R6 - I only hear short snatches as I am looking for things on terrestrial digital, and from what I recall it always seemed to be playing slumcult urban mobo doof-doof music (unless that was someone else)

Looks like the BBC has blooped!!

When I tried the link to the consultation page, I got a Page Load Error with the following message

Secure Connection Failed



consultations.external.bbc.co.uk uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown.

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)



    * This could be a problem with the server's configuration, or it could be someone trying to impersonate the server.

Bypassed the dodgy security certificate and completed the questionnaire.

I also sent them an email telling them about the problem.

I mentioned John Peel in my reply to BBC as well. But unfortunately, they can't repeat his programs, (including Nic Jones, Steeleye Span and many others) because they wiped the tapes.

The thing is.....and I don't want to disappoint you all here...the thing is, that the BBC won't listen.

But, they are being *seen* to be listening, so they can at least tick the box I suppose.

They have messageboards filled with 'what people want'...but er..it all falls on deaf eyes and blind ears...

Note to Pavane.
Actually quite a lot of those Peel sessions survived the dreaded cull of the 70's.
Whether they will ever see the light of day again, is probably unlikely, but, we live in hopes.
But, at least all of the surviving sessions are now saved to a huge digi database, that can be accessed by programme producers.
Hope that helps!
Regards Ralphie

Richard - 6 is mainly fairly generic indie music, but I'll forgive them anything for broadcasting "The Freak Zone", Stuart Maconie's excellent Sunday Tea Time show. It's a proper eclectic mix of folk, jazz, prog, psych, post-punk and outright strangeness. Far and away the best programme on national radio. And not so long ago he interviewed Shirley Collins as his featured guest...

Having worked with Stuart Maconie for many years, I would concur with Mr Cringe. He is undoubtedly one of the best broadcasters that work for the Beeb. Open to all styles and tastes of music (and a big Nic Jones fan as well!)

Strange Fruit Records
The label, established by Clive Selwood and John Peel in 1986, was the primary distributor of BBC recordings, including Peel Sessions

and...A large number of the current Live at the BBC recordings, including Fairport Convention, Sandy Denny, Led Zeppelin, The Moody Blues and the Incredible String Band feature the Peel Sessions recorded by the aforementioned musicians.

Be aware that you need cookies turned on for this questionaire! At least, I think that must be the reason I just answered every question, clicked to see my responses and every question had 'no response' next to it. Hhhmmmppphhh.
