Tim theTwangler Lack of Folk Music on BBC - thoughts (109* d) RE: Lack of Folk Music on BBC - thoughts 26 Jul 07

To steal from another thread.
What about if they broadcast stuff at the wrong time of the year?
I would like a series that visited the right places at the right time and captured the music in its context.
Well dressing,Starry Gazey pie(I know its been done I heard it three times). all the stuff that I know little of and am never likely to see or hear in person.
I would like a prog that only had "new" or original materiel,I would like to hear recordings rescued from wax cylinders.
There are so many things I will never hear.
You go get em Dave anything you acheive will be ok in my book.
There have been odd progs with a dozen versions of the one song or tune also interesting.
I hope no one turns this inot an arguement about what Folk is!
