Subject: RE: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding
Hi

I like Mike Harding very much. I knew him when he first started up and followed his career with interest.

He was a great entertainer and certainly filled the clubs when he performed. I used to book Mike about once a year "to pay the rent". He also helped me by recommending up-and-coming musicians worth having a look at.

I guess after 15 years though regardless of how good or bad he was, it was time for a change.

I don't know much about Mark Radcliffe but I think we should wait at least until he has been doing the program for a few weeks to try to judge him. He won't be Mike Harding- that is why he has been chosen.Who knows?? He may even please The Traddies.

Give the man a chance.

Cheers
