wink.gif I love Celtic Radio in the evening. I work in a beauty shop and I really enjoy getting home to put it on while I make something for dinner. Your music helps me chill out at night! Keep it coming!!! Annabelle

I listen every nite after the hubby goes to bed and on weekends if I get a chance. Wish I could listen at work. Keep up the good work... thumbs_up.gif music.gif

I listen to you all the time at home in the evenings. I loved listening during my conference period last year. Now, the school district's servers are blocking many programs :-( No more Celtic radio. I was trying to get my students to listen to soemthing OTHER than Brittany yuk Spears and the Backwards Boys.

Posted by: Gaelic Bread 30-Sep-2003, 10:23 AM
Holy schnikeys! I'm always listening! Whether I'm making the kilts or working on the website, it's always on!
I'm a Celtic Junkie! I would go to a twelve step program, but it would only lead me to a pub!

You only have to go 12 steps to the pub? You sure are lucky!! beer_mug.gif thumbs_up.gif biggrin.gif

It's gotten so that I listen to Celtic Radio from sun up til after midnight...I keep it on at my desk at work and sneak into my office at every possible moment I can get away..
The music helps me enjoy the day and the people on this network are great to talk to and their humor helps me get thru the days...
I love this station!!!

Posted by: Richard Bercot 06-Oct-2003, 08:59 PM
I usually tune in about 10:30 am and listen until about 3:00 am.

Great Music! note.gif note.gif

Never watch TV hardly any more.

Keep up the good work. thumbs_up.gif

Posted by: Annabelle 06-Oct-2003, 09:55 PM
I haven't turned on a TV in weeks...the music on here is great to work to.
I have alot of paper work at night so I usually turn it on and do my computer posting while I listen...don't need TV anymore except for Baseball and Football games...

Posted by: High Plains Drifter 13-Oct-2003, 10:10 AM
The first two or three days after I found this site, I would would leave when I wasn't on the Forum now I just leave it in the background what ever I am doing. Like several other folks, I'm not much of a TV watcher; Avalanche Hockey, some baseball and football (not a lot), and occasionally the History Channel. Otherwise I have always preferred radio because I can do other things while listening. TV is such a time waster. Love this music.

Posted by: Aaediwen 13-Oct-2003, 10:30 AM
I don't listen to much radio or watch TV anymore, Highlander Radio is the only station I can listen to atm, and here lately it's been on almost constantly when I've been home. Such a pity that they won't let us stream it at work. I broke the rules Saturday and hooked a pair of speakers to my hardware mp3 player at work, I had one person outright thank me, introduced some others to the genre, and then I think some others just silently enjoyed it. maybe I should dump some Celticradio to it and take it in that way =) Just a thought. note.gif

Posted by: McHaggis 16-Oct-2003, 08:52 PM
I found Highlander radio when I was searching for some Scottish fiddle or bagpipe tunes to include in a chart I was arranging. Now I check in at least once or twice a day to have a listen, read the forums and then leave it on while I post on other forums.

But have to turn it off when I work on other music projects.

I'd like to hear more music by Regimental Bands and the like, for homework purposes. There's nothing finer than listening to Scots rudimental drumming. I've been around percussion ensembles pretty much all my life and listening to the "Scotch Snap" (16th and dotted eighth) played on a real tight drumhead is still a real much different than your usual Frank Arsenault-type American rudiments.

Oh, and more ceildeh stuff.....I trip heavy on instrumental ensembles ala The Chieftans and others...Paddy Mahoney made me learn to play pennywhistle (I still have a copy of O'Neill's 101 Irish fiddle tunes, though it's pretty shopworn by now)and I suppose one of these days I'll learn the Irish harps like the late Derek Bell....weird things for a brass player to even consider....but then again, I play the didg, too. However, I suck as a fiddle player.

But of course, on HIGHLANDER RADIO, it's all good!

My iMac is in my dining room/office area, so I listen a lot while cooking. I love to bake things. I wish I could listen to it in my car :-(

Posted by: kidclaymore 18-Oct-2003, 10:47 PM
I listen to celtic radio whenever I get on the pc, which is when I'm not asleep or working. walkman.gif

Posted by: Boudica123 19-Oct-2003, 11:24 PM
I listen to the celticradio whenever I can ... mostly all the time

Posted by: Angel Whitefang 06-Nov-2003, 02:43 PM
It's Nice being theBoss, I went to the Office lastnight and connected one of the spare comps to the sound system as you can guess, it now plays through the entire office, that 3000 square feet of Fantastic Music! So far I have gotten 3 calls from the office saying they love it.
Blessed Be,

Posted by: Knightly Knight 19-Dec-2003, 10:46 PM
i got a new sound card and finally I can listen again. this station is the Breath of Fresh Air my ailing bones need for a full recovery

Posted by: kidclaymore 20-Dec-2003, 04:24 PM
The three weeks that I was offline, I thought I was going to go bonkers. Its amazing how you can get adicted to such things. wacko.gif

Posted by: Raven 21-Dec-2003, 02:15 PM
I listen all of the time while i am at work which is usually 8-5 EST m-f

Posted by: Unicorns_dragon 03-Jan-2004, 05:59 AM
Like the rest here, if I don't listen to it at least a couple of hours a dayI go through withdrawal.....nothing like dancing around the house while cleaning, or listening to a gentle song while reading in the still of the you guys

Posted by: jaynebylak 03-Jan-2004, 06:38 AM
I listen to it everytine I get on computer. If I am writing a short story, checking e maila or just chatting....I have my earphones on and listen while I get things done. Id listen to it 24/7 if I could..... I love it. Told my friends about it to.

I listen every chance I can. I especially like tunes with the great highland pipes and the clips from the movies. Right now they're playing the Clumsy Lover. Great tune. So far I haven't heard and Galacian pipe tune............ I'm sure our celtic-spanish brothers would like to hear some, right Herrerano, mi amigo?

Yours Aye,

I usually play b4 going to sleep
even I can listen in my dream
moreover, I made wireless setup, that I put my pocket pc in my pocket, and listen like walkman

Posted by: slamedbear 17-Feb-2004, 02:13 AM
I listen most in my off seasons. I do bi yearly ag work an during the season its sit down at the key board an 15 to 20 min later the big ZZZZZZZZ`s are rippin through the house. Hell that happens in the off season 2 sometimes thumbs_up.gif

Posted by: Mailagnas maqqas Dunaidonas 17-Feb-2004, 05:57 AM
Until I figure out how to jump through all the hoops required by Live365, I won't be able to listen. What a joke that company is. It's hard to see how they stay in business. It's better than nothing, though (assuming I can figure out how to use it), and I do appreciate Paul's efforts to keep on streaming.

Posted by: Danann 17-Feb-2004, 11:58 AM
The only place I don't listen is in the car.

Mailagnas, What platform and all are you on? also, if you have a popup blocker, that could also cause it not to work. PM me, I might be able to help... after all, its part of my job description.

Posted by: Mailagnas maqqas Dunaidonas 17-Feb-2004, 12:11 PM
I got it working on my Win2000 and WinME desktops at work and home, but am still trying to figure out how to get it to work on my Ipaq 2215, with WiFi, which is what I usually use at home, so I'm not tied to the computer when listening. I've seen a couple of posts indicating that others have gotten it to work, but haven't been able to figure out how they did it.

Posted by: rock_serenade 01-Mar-2004, 04:59 PM
I work at my home computer throughout the day and night at research or data entry, so I listen when ever i am at my desk. much easier than the stacks of scottish/irish/celtic cd's that used to clutter the bare spots on my desk. Keeps me going strong without the excuse of having to change cd's too.. which i suppose is a good thing.

Posted by: sylvanus 12-Mar-2004, 03:22 PM
With DSL at work, I bought myself a Creative Labs surround sound system... I listen pretty much from 9am till 5pm (or later). I can mute it from the keyboard when I answer the phone - what a pleasant sound-track for the day! (I leave the website up all the time, too, so I can see what's coming up - I miss the iTunes scroll that showed the current song...)

Posted by: groovyfishguy 17-Mar-2004, 02:51 PM
I listen all day at work smile.gif
and at home when I can thumbs_up.gif

Posted by: snoogans 18-Jun-2004, 03:46 AM
At work and at home in the evening (US daytime?)
Whatever, since the requests have gone, a lot less now.

Posted by: Madadh 18-Jun-2004, 04:00 AM
I listen at work (UTC +5)

Posted by: VetteGal 18-Jun-2004, 10:44 AM
I usually listen after work when I get home 10 PM - about 3 AM CST

Posted by: cscunningham 18-Jun-2004, 02:41 PM
I listen in the afternoon, when I am working from my home office.

Posted by: Camchak 19-Jun-2004, 06:34 PM
The company I work for has a giant firewall that will not let broadband pass, else I would listen to this all the time! wink.gif

Posted by: Eilidh 20-Jul-2004, 09:55 PM
I listen all the time, too, until a summer storm blows thru and I get knocked offline. I esp. like the music late at night. So, I keep my Celtic cd's in my car since I can't listen to CR while I'm away from my computer.

Posted by: Stevo 21-Jul-2004, 01:33 PM
I listen in the afternoon while at work. I have a dial up modem at home and only listen there when I'm not surfing the net.

Posted by: emerald-eyedwanderer 22-Jul-2004, 02:49 PM
I listen to it whenever I get a chance. I also listen to everyone talk about their favorites then check those out. Celtic Radio has expanded my selection of music. Thanks for that! thumbs_up.gif


Posted by: freekenny 23-Jul-2004, 02:46 AM
I listen every chance I get as of lately~~ I enjoy it later in the evenings when I sign on to CelticRadio and read the posts in the forums/threads~~ So relaxing!~ Keep up the fantastic job~~

I listen to it all the time at work. 8-5pm, the company I work for has a firewall but it will allow me to listen to music so I am one of the fortunate few. I really enjoy all the music played, it is so relaxing. Thank you for the site and the music, without it I may go insane.

Posted by: Ceciliastar1 24-Jul-2004, 12:43 PM
I listen to it when I am at work at my first job (I don't have access to internet at my second job). It all depends on when my shift is. But typically I work in the afternoons/early evennings. It's great!


Posted by: Annabelle 27-Jul-2004, 10:10 PM
Every time I get the time to be a lazy bones at work I go into my office and turn on the radio and leave it going. Very relaxing and keeps me in a happy spirit!


Posted by: Macfive 28-Jul-2004, 03:22 PM
You are all awesome!!! Thank you!

Posted by: sprdleyb 10-Sep-2004, 10:03 AM
I listen every morning first thing. I helps me get going in the morning. I also listen throughout the day. I enjoy it all the time laugh.gif

I listen any time I'm sitting at the PC doing emails, website stuff and homework.


Posted by: CelticRose 12-Sep-2004, 06:50 PM
I mostly listen to it when I am on my computer in the afternoons during the week. Then afternoons on the weekends. It has really expanded my CD collection too! smile.gif

Posted by: BluegrassLady 13-Sep-2004, 12:17 AM
Whenever I'm on the computer, I like to have it playing. smile.gif

As a graphic artist who works from home, discovering this radio station has really improved my day. This site is truly amazing! Being able to request music is great. It's a good way to discover new artists. I'm also fiddle playe and this station usually gets me inspired to play once work is done. (Or sometimes before it is done).

Posted by: BDougher 13-Apr-2005, 01:26 PM
I listen when I am in the Office, which is all the time.

Posted by: AyaLove 20-Jan-2006, 01:59 AM

I listen at every opportunity. IT's my retreat from the sounds of equipment and tools at work at the end of my day.


Posted by: Sojourner4Life 20-Jan-2006, 10:25 PM

I listen first thing in a.m. and all evening after work. The music really

feeds and uplifts my soul. biggrin.gif

I listen to Highlander Radio every morning before I go to school, and every evening when it's my turn on the computer. Speaking of which, does anyone know if there's a Celtic radio station on the real radio? Because my dad's getting sick of me hogging the computer, and he says his ears are about to fall off in true Celtic fashion ????? if I don't give him a break from the music. Not happening (the break, I mean) but it's kind of frustrating when I have to go away from the computer, and can't listen to Celtic music for more than 4 hours or so. I start to suffer from post-withdrawal symptoms and such. walkman.gif unsure.gif sad.gif

Posted by: Rindy 21-Jan-2006, 01:35 PM
Hi Cordelia..Highlander Radio is internet only..I would take it with me everywhere I went if I could..I listen to it most of my waking hours..were glad you like it too..

Ok, I'll answer my own poll 2 years later.

I'll admit, sometimes I am busy working to keep up with the mounting paperwork, or taking a break with my now 7 year old daughter to do a little coloring (she has conveniently setup shop with a board on a radiator right next to my desk). I may not have the music on all of the time - listening to new music, figuring out what tracks should go where and sometimes I will throw on some "other" type of music to fancy my kids and my deep musical interests.

At times, I have felt a little unmotivated to get it in gear to work on the site. I don't know what song to play next and I really don't want to think what to play. So I throw on Highlander Radio and suddenly I feel motivated again. My hands start typing, my brain starts thinking and suddeningly I am in a different place. All things are possible thanks to these great musician's words and songs.

So to answer the question in my typically long winded response - I listen to Highlander Radio when I am working on Highlander Radio! biggrin.gif

Posted by: ballydun 21-Jan-2006, 11:44 PM
I listen at work when I can. I would love to be able to listen on satilite radio or something, becuse the time I get to listen isn't enough!!

Thanks for such a great site Macfive!!!

Posted by: j Padraig moore 01-Feb-2007, 02:34 PM
I have to admit this, now don't hate me, but I rarely if ever listen at all anymore. Reason being I am not allowed to listen at work and with dial-up at home (plus a teenager doing IM and Myspace stuff) it's just not worth it (the dial-up I mean, not Highlander Radio!).
I wish I could listen, but it is not to be.

Posted by: gwenlee 02-Feb-2007, 06:43 PM
Actually I listen to Highlander radio at varies time. I put morning because when I am off I turn it on while cleaning the house. I wish I could listen at work but at a hospital we are not allowed. I have listened to the station while in my car. We took the portable lap top and plugged in. It was wonderful.


Posted by: Donajhi 10-Jul-2007, 05:08 PM
I key in each morning while I clean out my email accounts.
Keeps me calm.

Posted by: Drothgord 11-Jul-2007, 06:25 AM
Mostly at work. Because the processor of my own computer just broke up and i haven't bought a new one yet biggrin.gif
So i use my working hours wisely and listen to good music.

Posted by: Lady of Avalon 17-Jul-2007, 06:45 PM
Unfortunately I can't at work so its only at night at home.

Posted by: englishmix 06-Feb-2009, 10:59 PM
I listen mostly at work on the weekdays - mornings and afternoons. It takes me away and yet helps me to concentrate.

Posted by: TetonAndDistrictPerformingArts 02-Oct-2015, 07:48 PM
I really enjoy listening to CelticRadio in the late evenings / night, while working on website design or band business. I try to make the effort to rate songs as they come up. note.gif

Posted by: Skinner 03-Oct-2015, 08:31 AM
Unfortunately due to a series of surgeries I've been home for the last 11 months. Finding this site and Highlander Radio has been a Godsend. I turn it on in the morning and off at night. Good speakers have made the computer my stereo. I need someone (younger evidently) to help me wireless this to other rooms.

Posted by: Leelee 03-Oct-2015, 11:31 AM
I listen to Highlander Radio when at work, keeps me calm and focused. I also turn on Highlander Radio at home when cleaning house or just sitting back on the computer. I absolutely love it!! biggrin.gif Thank you Celtic Radio!!!
