* We have maximum 28 percent crossover readership with any
other music magazine. With fRoots you really do reach the long-term
committed folk, roots and world music audience and opinion-formers that no other
magazine gets to.
* Don't think of fRoots as a purely UK magazine. We take you
around the world - 40 percent of our readership is outside the UK. And this
worldwide readership - who buy on average more than 50 CDs each a year! - is
incredibly internet-wise: you don't need UK or international export distribution
in order to sell to them.

non-UK advertisers our advertising and subscription rates are now effectively
CHEAPER than before! And meanwhile, UK advertisers will find their prices
more attractive to our many overseas readers. Go for it!
