I forget now what I was looking for , something of a Scottish nature I am sure (maybe celtic knotwork?), but the link to this site came up in that search for something else. It was a most happy accident the day I found "the music!" Then the music led me to this forum, and my first conversation regarding my Scottish roots and my Uncle Joe (BTW, do you still have the cute graphic that you made of my Uncle Joe, Dave?)
Gosh it's been so long ago. I joined the foum first looking for clan information back in Oct 2001. I started listening to the radio soon after. Back then I was the 19th member to join. When I look at how many members there are now. WOW!!

It was a half heeded comment in the chatroom or message board on the site of a certain group lol . I find it intercontinental supergalactic that "my lads" are played such a lot here. I just wish the "normal" Radio Stations, like BBC 2 or BBC Radio Scotland would play them as much. To do them the honours - Rčidio nan Gŕidheal plays them rather a lot in comparison But these guys are the only one , sigh. When will they ever learn what they' ve done for Scottish music, culture and language over the last 30 (!) years?

Wow! This is a really nice thread for me to read over and think that people do like this site! Thanks for everyone's nice comments here. I just wish I had the time to get the forum back up to snuff, but soon enough it will happen.
Well, the whole reason I started this site was because I had been to my first Highland Game and wanted to listen to music I heard, but could not really find any. So hence was born Highlander Radio.....
