Thread Name: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding-Radio 2 Folk
Subject: RE: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding-Radio 2 Folk
As a presenter of a weekly Folk programme on Hospital Radio Lynn for almost 30 years I must say I am stunned and sickened by the shitty way Mike has been treated by those bloody "suits " upstairs in the Beeb.

I fully understand and respect that he might not be everyones cup of tea as a presenter,however he has undeniably done a huge amount of positive work to broaden the appeal of folk - just look at the huge increase in his listening figures for a start!

We seem to have been here before too - FOLKWAVES?

As for "mumbling" Mark Radcliffe   jeez!
