World routes finale

I heard on World On 3 last night that World Routes is coming off the air. I think tomorrow night's show (Sunday 15th) is the last. I didn't listen very often, especially when it moved to Sunday Night, as I was not too keen on the presentational style; I always felt like I might get detention for not paying attention. That aside it's a loss. It provided a platform for many musicians who will not be heard elsewhere. Also there will be even fewer choices for those who want to hear the music. There are few enough outlets for roots music on national (much less local) music stations on our tunnel visioned networks already.
