This was a lovely surprise. I got a message to say Folk Radio UK was in the Guardian today. Guardian journalist, Elisabeth Mahoney, described Folk Radio as “back-to-back music of the most gentle, serene sort, and a marvellous companion for a few hours.” Full article below

Nice one – pity she missed the UK out of the name! Actually, doesn’t matter – just Googling ‘Folk Radio’ still returns the preferred result :-)

Cheers mate. Someone is going to post a comment with a link…I’m just out to take the kids to the cinema…how can I be expected to sit still for two hours after this news! :)

I discovered the site today as a result of the Guardian article and have been hooked up all day. Fab!

Hi Andrew, that’s great to hear! That article was completely unexpected…I’ve been smiling all day!

Congrats! Completely well deserved too; Folk Radio’s one of my constant companions while I work. I hope you get oodles of new listeners (and supporters!) as a result :-)

Alex, you do provide a “serene” service throughout my day. Especially when I hear The Low Anthem playing … and not Joanna Newson. :-) Thanks for continuing the good fight.
