GUEST,Phil Cooper CJRT Toronto dropping folk, blues, world (25) RE: CJRT Toronto dropping folk, blues, world 20 Sep 00


Dear Rana,

The Chicago Public Radio station dropped all it's folk programming about seven years ago now. It kept Thistle and Shamrock and considered Prairie Home Companion a folk show. It dropped Folk Sampler, SingOut Songbag and a local eclectic folk/enthnic show (played a variety, all of it the "real stuff"), again for news and jazz. There is a suburban public station that still has folk programming and WFMT's Midnight Special gets cabled around the country. But I tell the Chicago public radio station that they will get my pledge dollars again when they revive folk programming. Otherwise, I glady tell everyone to freeload for the programs they like on NPR.
