Ah, don't worry about it.

People mock what they don't understand, and media people also mock what they can't co-opt and shoehorn into their neat boxed-off formats.

If it's really bugged you that much write a letter to UK TV registering your complaint, but I suspect traditional music will survive some advertising wonk having a dig on a small cable channel.

I must say a line-up of Owl TV, Cats Do The Craziest Things, and Legends Of Folk Music sounds a whole bunch better than most of the endlessly-recycled output of the UK TV channels, where do I sign up?
