I don't understand this, have I missed something?

If it's in relation to streaming radio, then I think I've blown my usage cap and I'm now having to consider paying more money - I think i should have stayed with NTL (now virgin) at least that was uncapped.

I must admit that I really like the SR Valden show.

And don't worry about not getting feedback, I've suffered from that for months, something to do with my lack of humour, knowledge or counting ability I think.

It is appreciated, Paul. It's just that the sheer volume of interesting music available via the internet is already at dizzying levels, and all this new information is liable to take some time to sink in. For those of us who can't access music at all for at least 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, it's a matter of what (if anything) must make way for anything new that comes along.

Same goes for Gordon - I love the idea of the CD Circle migrating onto a streamed web 'show', and the measures you are taking to try to achieve something akin to that are very much appreciated. No doubt we'll all be quick to mount the bandwagon if (when) it gets a-rollin'!

Having said all that, I still think there's a crying need for more 'proper' radio station coverage of This Kind of Thing. The internet is a 'pull' media, ie people who are already at least partial converts to roots and "world" music tend to seek out these online shows. It needs to be pushed more at unsuspecting listeners - giving people what they didn't think they wanted as the late John Walters said. Sadly, it seems that Radio 2 and 3 are becoming increasingly reluctant to do that.
