Thread Name: TV Ad: Folk music ridiculed - again
Subject: RE: TV Ad: Folk music ridiculed - again
So folk music's being ridiculed in the media is it? Hah - join the club! Try counting the number of times the librarian stereotype - female, glasses, plain, hair in a bun, sexless, going "shh" all the time (and that's just the men) is shown on TV. Count the number of times in the press where you can read "as boring as a librarian".

So try being a librarian who plays folk music - double jeopardy...
