Thread Name: Bitching about the Mike Harding show
Subject: RE: Bitching about the Mike Harding show
Well, of course the introductions are hyperbolic - what competent MC, live or on radio, is going to run down the act he/she is introducing? And there is so much good stuff going on in Britain (which some people think only has Celtic), that there is no justification for including rubbish in the show at all, so it must all be good...?

There are lots of good people who never get played, and I find the request selections pretty much in a rut. I just think it's a crying shame that the BBC gives so little air time to British folk music (even when you take Late Junction into account).
