Subject: RE: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding
The report on the BBC's own news website says their aim is "to incorporate folk music more seamlessly into our mainstream programmes".

They clearly don't understand that the reason minority areas of music need their own shows is precisely because they don't fit into their mainstream programmes. Or that the point of having a public service broadcaster is to cover those areas which otherwise would not get covered.
