Afternoon folks,
As some of you may already be aware, there is a fairly comprehensive list of folk programmes on local and national radio available at :
It seems to be reasonably accurate, but obvious errors in the national list are:
Mike Harding is now 7pm Wednesday  on Radio 2
Andy Kershaw is now 11:15pm (!) Monday on Radio 3
I hope you find this useful,

I am pleased to say that on Radio Kent we have the excellent Sunday evening (9pm-10pm) folk offering from Simon Evans.
This evening, as well as national and international pieces, he covered local groups such as Cajunology (now terminated but still perpetuated for a little while longer in the form of Dindon Sauvage), the up and coming ReligOran, and other local groups. And also a good coverage of Tommy People's imminent three-stop tour of SE England, including the playing of a track from The Bothy Boys.
What I would like is this program on the internet, so that it can be accessed later in the week, by people who could not catch the actual program - so yes, please do write in, and plug for these things !

While you're at it why not write to your own local BBC Radio and ask them why there is no regular folk-based show such as many other parts of the country have (at a quick scan the nearest are Johnny Coppin in Gloucester/Oxford  and Genevieve Tudor in Hereford/Worcester/Shropshire).
