Subject: Folk on Radio Devon
From: Marje
Date: 11 Jan 10 - 08:29 AM

I discovered yesterday that BBC Radio Devon has at last introduced a weekly folk music programme. Presented by Jam Causley, it lasts for 2 hours (Sundays, 5-7 pm), and yesterday's broadcast can be heard here:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p005v82v/Jim_Causleys_Devon_Folk_10_01_2010/

Well worth hearing. If you live in Devon, please e-mail the BBC to express your support.

I second that Marje, a well presented show with an interesting selection of music. Jim (or Jam, if you will :-)) is an engaging character, and a two hour show! Well done Radio Devon.

Good program this, good to hear more folk,

Not to steal their thunder, but Folkwaves on Radio Derby is also well worth a listen if you've not caught it

here goes for a blue clicky clicky

hope you all enjoy it

Yes, Folkwaves is a marvellous programme, the best I've found on 'tInternet. But it's been going since Cecil Sharp was a lad. We've been starved of a decent local folk radio show in Devon for far too long. I'd give an honourable mention to Johnny Coppin's Folk Roots on Radio Gloucestershire, only an hour long, sadly, but good stuff.

What happened to Jim Causley, just heard Richard Digance doing the Folk bit on Radio Devon (via tinternet), unless i missed it, which is quite possible, there was no mention of young Jim.
Anyone know what happened?

Stu, I've been asking the same question!
I really enjoyed Jim's programmes - but missed one cos I was away (and there's no sound at all on my computer at the moment) so it was a great surprise (and disappointment) to discover that it had suddenly changed to Richard Digance.

Speaking as someone who presents a two-hour weekly programme it takes a fair commitment. If you are away for a weekend then you will need a dep.

Or spend one week doing nothing but putting programmes in the can for the weeks you aren't there.

As Jim works weekends it occurs to me that that may be the reason. Let me stress - I don't actually know.

I emailed Radio Devon and received an almost immediate reply (I was impressed!).

"Thanks for taking the time and trouble to email me. Jim Causley has decided to leave BBC Radio Devon and we are in the process of finding a replacement. ... Mark "

I'm not sure whether Richard Digance is that replacement and they are waiting to confirm that or whether he is a stop gap while they find someone permanent.

I thought Jim Causely was doing an excellent job - I liked his choice of music and the fact that he was interviewing local performers and promoting local music as much as possible, rather than the broader national (international?) line that Richard Digance is taking.   I hope the programme soon gets back to its local roots.

If you like a "traditional" bias, as well as Folkwaves on Radio Derby, try G. Tudor's programme on Radio Shropshire.

Steve:    Thanks for the info, (don't know why I didn't think of emailing Radio Devon in the first place). I'll give that G Tudor a listen as well, on tinternet

Dave:    I'll download your show as well and have a listen too

It's called "Thank Goodness It's Folk" and you can listen live on Friday mornings 10.00 am - 12 noon.

The podcast is here.

I was surprised Jim Causely left so quickly, he played some good stuff (SoH notwithstanding). There's an interview with him on the web that was recorded shortly before he disappeared from Radio Devon and he gives no inkling he won't continue. However the interviewer asks him how he feels about the mix of music and he said he'd like to play more of the tradition but was under pressure not to lose the audience so maybe he though screw it.
The interview also said Mawkin Causely were splitting with different members going their own ways. Apologies if that's old news.

"Thanks for taking the time and trouble to email me. Jim Causley has decided to leave BBC Radio Devon and we are in the process of finding a replacement. ... Mark "

Surely this is the perfect opportunity for someone wanting their own radio show.

I am happy to pass on anything I have learnt about producing and presenting a folk show on radio to anyone who wants to apply.

A regular contributor here who posts using a first name that is a shortened form of Elizabeth (take a breath....) was celebrating the Causley show here recently.

I am 100% sure this has nothing to do with him leaving the station.

Maybe she could take up the reigns??
I'm feeling slightly faint now.
Seriously, Summer is a comin in...etc.etc. It wouldn't surprise me if Jim is block booked every weekend (If no he damn well should be)
And I know that pre-recording a 2 hour show is very time consuming...(Takes about 4 hours in reality). Not to mention the hours of listening, programming the order etc. Folkiedave will agree I'm sure!
I'm sure that Jim couldn't commit to that sort of time outlay. Richard Digance obviously hasn't got any gigs!

To do a structured show - diary, traditional artists, checking things - including all the links, probably 6/8hours. I arrange all my own interviewees too. Though to be fair that isn't too bad.

I have basically stopped recording interviews because it took too long when editing.
