Subject: RE: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding-Radio 2 Folk
I recall some Folk Dance club friends who decided they would start a Folk SONG Club - It would ONLY feature English Traditional songs - Then they realised that between them they would run out of songs halfway through the first evening , so they said only BRITISH traditional songs - that would have just about got them through til closing time , so they said " OK - ALL Traditional songs , which added NOTHING to their list .
Does that sound at all familiar ? An ALL traditional Folk Programme would NOT work , so lets have a good mix , but for God's sake , not JUST Bloody Pop Folk !!
