I just found this Celtic Radio site but I've been a fan of everything Irish all my life. For years, I assumed that I must have Ireland in my background somewhere, but a recent DNS test says my ancestors came from Scotland and Northern England. Harrumph!

Don't get me wrong, I do like the folk music of Scotland and, yes, even England, but Irish music is always at the top of my list. I have over 5,000 CDs in my collection and while it covers the gamut of folk, blues, bluegrass, classic rock and even a little jazz and classical, a huge amount of it is from Ireland.

I'm a member of the World Folk Music Association (WFMA) which has given me the chance to meet and greet so many folk singers and performers -- including Tommy Makem (a highlight).

One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.

Welcome aboard DeaconMac!

Wow - you got quite a collection there. We play Scottish, Irish and Celtic Music - but we also have Welsh and some English as well as American / Canadian / Australia Folk/Celtic music and even some South American Groups along with Spain and even Russia (focused on Celtic).

What an honor to meet the great Tommy Makem.

Hope you stick around, we don't have the fanciest site and broadcast but we keep it going since 2005.

Thanks for stopping by and joining!

Hello to you, DeaconMac, from the great Navajo Nation in Northern Arizona!

Glad to have you with us! I have a good sized CD collection myself, but I think it pales in comparison to yours! That's awesome!

I've been able to meet a few performers over the years. I like the fact that Irish Trad folks are generally easy to approach and love to enter into good conversation.

Hope you are enjoying this site and all it has to offer.

Welcome aboard and have a great day!
