MoorleyMan fRoots suspending publication (76* d) RE: fRoots suspending publication 04 Jul 19


I too want to drag this thread back to what i see as its primary focus - to report and lament the sad news.

And thence, importantly, to most heartily endorse the comments of Vic Smith and Derek Schofield, both in tone and detail. I too have been a subscriber to, and reviewer for, the magazine, for some time, and have stayed loyal to it through the years because it was/is the best, the most informed, the most professionally produced in every way - which is, it should go without saying, down to the tremendous (and too often unsung) guiding force and unswerving integrity of its Editor Ian Anderson. Well done that man! For that, and for selecting and steering (and keeping on board) the very best contributors in their field/s.

I do still harbour the hope that an online fRoots presence can be maintained somehow. It won't be the same, I grant you, but it would be infinitely better than losing the mag's presence altogether. The specialist music scene can't stand to lose fRoots' benchmark high standard of journalism IMHO.
