If it's not, either submit the details for the show yourself (if possible) or email me at the usual address (see the website if you don't know it - can't post it here, the spammers will get us!) and let me know, so I can register. If FolkCast is there, please rate, vote for or review the show. And please, be honest - say exactly how excellent you think FolkCast is! ;-)

- If you have a website of your own, please link to us (http://www.folkcast.co.uk).
- If you are going to a live music event (or just popping down to the nearest record store) why not print off a few FolkCast Fliers and distribute them?
- If you read a music-themed web board or email list, why not mention FolkCast there?

Two Way Street
I hope all FolkCast listeners enjoy the show - that certainly seems to be the way of it, judging by the feedback we get at the show, which is overwhelmingly positive. No, in fact it's 100% positive.
