Thread Name: Bitching about the Mike Harding show
Subject: RE: Bitching about the Mike Harding show
By an amazing coincidence, I'm actually listening to this very show at the moment. As a Northumbrian piper, I'm very glad to hear the Kathryn Tickell piece.
But Jennifer, I have to agree about the hyperbole! Every single track is "the best X ever" or from "one of the best musicians in the whole of X"! I once counted the superlatives in one of his shows and was going to put it in a graph of 'wonderful', 'brilliant', 'fantastic's etc plotted against ordinary words and send it in.
I couldn't be bothered in the end though.
