Subject: RE: Bitching about the Mike Harding show
Murkey Chris - I played Bellowhead on my show quite a while ago - it was my album of the month when it came out!

It can be quite difficult getting the balance right if you're presenting a weekly show.

I do get to choose all my tracks (except those Laura selects for her weekly young person's slot) but I have to remind myself constantly that I need to provide a diverse range of "folk" material; it would be great if I could choose just what I particularly like to hear! I try to concentrate on / reflect what's going on in the Greater Manchester area - local clubs and festivals, artists residing in the area or performing in it etc..

But an hour goes all too quickly!!!
