Thread Name: Bitching about the Mike Harding show
Subject: RE: Bitching about the Mike Harding show
I have also stopped listening to Mike Harding's show, not just because of him being annoying, but because of the music he plays. All the regional radio trad/folk shows I've heard have better stuff on them.

He seems to be part of this project to make folky music the new pop, with charts for the best sellers, fawning teenagers asking for interviews round the backdoor of stadiums, brightly coloured magazines full of idolatrous praise for the next big thing. It's all rather distasteful I feel.
