Subject: RE: CJRT Toronto dropping folk, blues, world
That leaves us in Toronto with heros Rick Fielding , Steve Fruitman, Steve Pritchard, and the occasional CBC show that might play some folk music from time to time, although none of those programs have diverse folk playlists like the "Absolutely Folk" show consistantly had. It's up to you now to clue us in over the airwaves as to what's up- we're depending on you more than ever! I've been an occasional listener, and contributor over many years to the folk show, and many times was inspired by the music -new and old that they played, and also kept us informed of the latest concerts and festivals on regular basis. They were also kind enough to play cuts from my banjo recording. CJRT will be missed by the folk community - too bad! Arnie
