The fight to get "Folkwaves" back on radio is still very much alive and kicking.

There is still a void in many of our lives on Monday night because of the axing of the show.

However, all is not lost. A community radio station which operates in NW Leicestershire/Derbyshire called HERMITAGE RADIO now has a dedicated folk slot between 7.00 and 9.00 on Thursdays. I've listened to a couple of the shows and there has been a very good selection of music with knowledgeable presenters.

Unfortunately due to financial restraints there is no "listen again" - small enterprises like this are flying financially by the seat of their pants and the more audience the better:

Hermitage Radio is at:- http://www.hermitagefm.com/

and can be listened to online - are there small radio stations in your area doing the same thing ?- if we could get a list of them it may well be possible to get a folk programme every night.

Bishop FM in County Durham does an excellent show on Mondays 7-9pm. Good mix of British & American folkiness.

Terry Ferdinand fronts it and it has a good audience scattered around the globe.


Bishop FM Folk Show

I've got a whole list of others I'll post up soon as well.

Hermitage FM now has another show on a Sunday 6 til 8pm. I am told this is following a demand for that type of show.
I have listened and find it excellent stuff

And Friday you can listen to "Thank Goodness It's Folk" presented by me.

I post the playlist on Mudcat most weeks. Here is a link to all the details and there is a podcast facility. (Except for W/ending May 6th - technical problem).

Don't forget Ali O'Brien's 'Sounds of Folk' every Monday (repeated on Friday) from 7.00pm to 8.00pm on Oldham Community Radio 99.7fm, or online, complete with 'Listen Again' going back to March 2010!!

We were one of the illustrious Beeb's casualties back in 2007, but rose from the ashes and have just broadcast programme 217 from our new home!

Sorry to hijack the thread, but we all have a point to make!!

For the past 15 years we have broadcast every week on our local community radio station here in New Zealand
Folk on Sunday

We're on air from 3-4pm Sunday, which is OK for people in Aussie to tune into but it's the middle of the night in Britain and Saturday evening in US. Our programme is repeated on Monday nights at 9pm which is a bit more friendly for those in Britain – currently 10–11am Monday, but when we have daylight saving and you're back to GMT it's 8-9am. Really only suitable for those working at home.
Originally we could only be heard in a radius of about 100 miles but they now have Internet audio.

so it is possible to hear us around the world. Peter is one of our regular listeners.
Although some of the programmes can be heard again, because of copyright ours isn't one of them.
