Thread Name: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding-Radio 2 Folk
Subject: RE: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding
If Mike was told what to play, then I think that is a disgrace!
From what we know, John Peel was never told what to play, and so why would anyone presume to tell Mike Harding -with all his experience on the folk scene - what to play!
All this "dumbing down" by the BBC is very disappointing.
Mind you, the BBC have a long track record of drafting in people, who lack the correct credentials, to run shows
I do hope that Mike does now "reveal all" about the show.
