Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
You know Jim (you're not going to like this one bit) but you sound just like Teribus, Akenaton and KAOH.

A little Englander sitting there saying "the youth of today mutter, mutter, mutter........ " "it wasn't like that in my day mutter, mutter, mutter ........"

The definition you cling to, like a drowning man to a straw doesn't work any more.

People don't learn through an oral tradition anymore. They buy CD's, they go on-line, they listen to YouTube, watch television or listen to the radio.

The oral tradition is for the most part, dead, deceased, no more, it's expired, gone to meet its maker, bereft of life, joined the heavenly choir ..........
