Well I'm sucked out - along with the 95% of the population. I'm accused of ranting and abused if I have a divergent opinion about folk music.

Theres no conversation here. But remember what goes around etc. Next time they close down one of your radio programmes, or one of your sacred cows goes bankrupt. This is the isolation from your fellow men that you sought out.

As you say Spleen, many musicians work in appalling conditions. probably the 95%, that i identify with. still we can always sing about what a bugger it is to be press ganged, and theres always bang up to date subjects youre allowed to sing about - like World War 1 and being transported for poaching.

And who knows perhaps one of your heroes will let you buy them a drink and they'll let you in on their new concept album, soon to be an unwatched programme on BBC4.
