Ran across a great article on Wikipedia today on the Celts:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celts

Found this tidbit from the article very reflective of the idea behind Celtic Radio:

QUOTE

'Celticity' generally refers to the cultural commonalities of these peoples, based on similarities in language, material artifacts, social organisation and mythological factors. Earlier theories were that this indicated a common racial origin but more recent theories are reflective of culture and language rather than race. Celtic cultures seem to have had numerous diverse characteristics but the commonality between these diverse peoples was the use of a Celtic language.


So, we don't need to be of common racial origin to participate in our diverse characteristics of Celtic Culture!
