"The BBC has nothing to do with folk song"
I already said that - why repeat it ?
The BBC have a history of isolating the best of folk onto (previously) The Third Programme and when the best of it sneaked out via Midlands Radio, hastily closed the Features Department and got rid of the best of their broadcasters like Charles Parker and Philip Donnellan
The closing of the Radio Ballads because the team refused accept the removal of the "exterminate the Travellers" statement was typical of its approach
Their neglect of the most important project, the 1950s mopping-up remains a disgrace - still largely unavailable 70 years later

Sorry Bloke (I couldn't remember your earlier multi-personas until Ake just mentioned it) - I have to say you blew it with me long time ago when you started denegrating and insulting the people who gave us their magnificent with your "tit-trousers"

" so can't be all that bed eh?"
Are you suggesting we're having an affair !!
