Thread Name: Bitching about the Mike Harding show
Subject: RE: Bitching about the Mike Harding show
OK.. i've avoided his radioshow for a good 4 years now
because theres something about his presentational style
and 'humerous' personality
that rubs me up the wrong way..
and no..
i'm not a disgruntled isolationist trad folk purist by any means..
so does he still TALK OVER the intros and ends
of live sesion recordings....
i'm sure [if my memory is still reasonably functional..]
the last straw for me
was when he TALKED OVER the middle section
of a live song !!!!
maybe its a music biz anti-piracy legal requirement
forced on mike harding to deliberately
**** up the musical enjoyment
of home cassette and CD recorder owners..
or maybe he just considers himself more important
than the artists he's presenting..
and he couldn't care less about ruining
highly desirable commercially unavailable
live session recordings..
thanks for reading..
[yes.. its me again..]
