I noticed on Facebook that Janet Russell is on Womans Hour on BBC Radio 4 tomorrow talking about opportunity in folk music for women.

On facebook she was asking for input from others.

Thanks. I have great respect for Janet and delight in her music. I'm guessing it isn't available for me here in Maine.

BBC Radio 4 should be available on-line.

Football and cricket commentories on are blocked due to rights issues but they aren't broadcast on 4.

Oh- yes, it does look possible, thanks. It's BBC TV that's not available to me here. I see lots of interesting programs listed, too.

Looking forward to listening.

I am in California and we are 8 Hours behind UK hours.
Will this program only be available to hear "live" at the hours it will be broadcast in England? Or can I listen to it at a later time?
Also, how do I find this program? Do I just Google BBC Radio 4 to find how to actually get to the program site?
Thank you.
I saw Janet many years ago when I was visiting in London in the 1980s' and she played at Bunjies Folk Cellar one night. Also saw her with Christine Kydd at a concert they did in Pasadena, California somewhere in the mid-1990's.

What did people think or the interview? Back to this apocryphal comment about festivals not wanting to book all women bands as reported by the Guardian. Then about folk song lyrics being misogynistic..

There are many traditional songs with stong and inspiring female protagonists, and I thought Janet made that point very well.

It is up on the BBC site now and should be available to listen to for the next 7 days, no matter what part of the world you are living in

If you look at the main stage line up for the Cambridge folk festival it's noticeable what a huge number of all women bands there are - Main Stage line up

I was surprised to hear there was a problem - I thought women were thriving in the folk world.

PS. Congratulations to Brian Peters for describing them as 'inspiring' rather than the turgid and ubiquitous 'inspirational'.

Looks like this program is available in the United States at this link (click) for at least a little while. If the folk programme doesn't start right away, move forward to about 32 minutes.

Janet Russell is well-nigh the Voice of God to me, so I'm glad I found access to this.

Is it a case of Womans Hour being any opportunity to kick men in the bollox?

The comment about the festivals not wanting to book women bands is not apocryphal. It happened. It happened to me when I was looking for gigs for Anonyma in the 1980s and apparently it has happened again to a much higher-profile band this year.   There are a still a lot of issues about women performers being booked by both clubs and festivals, although things are generally far better than they were in the 1980s.
Why would you think that Woman's Hour would want to kick men anywhere, Guest? Did you listen to the interview? Do you listen to the programme normally? Women standing up for themselves are not necessarily anti-men, you know, and it's very sad that you should think they are. Many men would like to see more women booked by clubs and festivals, as well. Oddly enough, we make up half the population.

Woman's Hour is a BBC programme that's been going as long as I can remember.
Dating back to the time when women stayed home and cared for the children and men earned the wages. (Generalisation, I know)

It has always covered a wide range of topics, serious and lighter and is a loved part of Radio 4. Some were covered from a woman's perspective, but were of general interest.

Woman's Hour is a decades-old establishment programme for and by the metropolitan chatterati. Janet gives them what they want and expect. It's always been a celebration of the sisterhood's victim status. Chip, chip, chipee....

Above comment unworthy of response. But I'm surprised no-one's mentioned that Belinda O'Hooley appeared on the show as well.

I hear someone is doing an MA dissertation on how folk song tradition was once feminist and empowered and later on became misogynistic.would account for evidence for both side of the argument.

There are some academics who believe that the ballad tradition of Scotland was once a largely female preserve (there's still a disproportionate number of great female Scots ballad singers, of which Janet Russell can be counted a member). I don't get 'later on became misogynistic', though. Surely the repertoire is what it is, and everything depends on which songs you choose and the context you set them in.
