Subject: RE: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding-Radio 2 Folk
"Genial" Jim Lloyd again being eased out of his Folk On Two slot

Lloyd wasn't eased out. He hung on well past his broadcast-by date because his wife Frances Line was the Controller of Radio 2. When she retired, he graciously handed in the golden tankard as well. Then Ralph McTell presented it for few months while they put it out to tender. Let's just say he wasn't a natural broadcaster.

Several miles up this thread (17 Oct 05:04 pm) I detailed what happened next, which drew no comment. Still true though.
