running.hare UK Minister insults folkmusic: complain! (115* d) RE: UK Minister insults folkmusic: complain! 05 Dec 01

"Did anyone hear MH talking to Jeremy Vine on the JY show today? During a discussion about Kim Howells' remarks, Mike played JV a couple of examples of current folk music. He enjoyed a brief burst from Nancy Kerr and James Fagan, but after hearing Cara Dillon remarked '..but that's not Folk'".

I caught the said interveiw 1/2 way through. JV continued his 'thats not folk' coment with "the's not been a single hey nonny non in it"!!! ohh talk about enlightened DJs!!! MH was comenting about how no folk is played in all the varied mix of other music on 'mainstream' raidio 2 (as apposed to just 1 or 2 hrs a week) JV's final coment was "I don't see how we could play any folk music with out getting a folk band in to the studio" So if any 1 want's to volenteer to play live on Radio 2 Get emailing!!! alturnitivly send them an CD or 2 that they can play on air ;)
