Thread Name: Bitching about the Mike Harding show
Subject: RE: Bitching about the Mike Harding show
Yeah I tend to agree with Greg. For what it is, Mike Harding's show is good. It is aimed at people with a mild interest in 'folk, roots and acoustic' music, and plays mostly good music. But it is very limiting, and ignores a lot of good music because it isn't mainstream enough. There has been loads of constructive criticism of this, but nothing has changed. And the requests shows are quite a joke. I remember taping a request show and keeping it for a while. About a year later I heard another one and they played about 5 of the same songs! Like I said, the Mike Harding show does what it does adequately enough, and it's better than nothing, but I'm sure they'd be a market for an hour on Radio 3 which is less commercially minded.
