Rana who SHOULD be working CJRT Toronto dropping folk, blues, world (25) CJRT Toronto dropping folk, blues, world 20 Sep 00


It was just posted on Maplepost that this Saturday will be the last for Cate Friesen's Absolutely Folk, Kai Black's World Music programme and John Valentine's Blues programme. This is a serious blow to folks not only in Toronto, but around Ontario and those who pick it up on satellite etc. The shows are being replaced by 6 hours of jazz - the station is just going to concentrate on jazz and classical. Undoubtedly economics will be playing a big factor.

These programmes were very good and also very important to the local scene in Toronto. More of this type of music programming should have been broadcast instead of a paltry 6 hours / week.

I don't know whether other regions have suffered similar fates - maybe others out there can relate horror stories.
