DJ from Syracuse area writes:
My main complaint regarding what Pinkwater said on NPR is that he brought the wrong Kind of attention to the subject of contemporary folk music.
With too broad a brush and too little pertinent information, he seems to dismiss the efforts of all of today's younger talented folk and acoustic
artists because he didn't like the recordings of some young artists he'd heard on a tape that was given to him by a friend.

DJ from CT area wrote:
I wish one of our more articulate  members could post an "op-ed" piece to NPR.

And from the folk dj at the NPR folk music dj from Pinkwaters own local NPR station
Damn, I love this music, whether it's Mississippi Fred or Bonnie Raitt playing his stuff, whether it's Doc Watson or Richard Watson, Jay Ungar or
Ruthie Ungar.  If Daniel Pinkwater brought "folk music" to the attention of other people who otherwise might not be listening to it on NPR,
college, NFCB or independent stations, even if I don't agree with every syllable he uttered, then I'm okay with it.
