Just as a matter of interest, did anyone else see the programme on the tele over the weekend about Radio 2???? It featured all the non mainstream music programmes - The organist entertains, Mike Harding`s folk etc. As part of Listen To The Band, the cameras followed Dykes preparation for, and competiton at this years Open. `Twas brilliant stuff with some great comments from Frank Renton, Nicholas Childs and members of the band. It really showed what banding in competition is all about. Hopefully it may have educated Joe Public and given him an insight as to why we do what we do. I only encountered this programme by accident though, and it is a shame that its existence couldn`t have been somehow advertised to the banding fraternity. Then, that would need for the banding world to get organised and have a person to whom the tv companies could turn to and who in turn could try to influence them get more about bands on the tv and radio. I`m not holding my breath!!!!
