Heather Dale - May Queen Album:

Modern Celtic singer-songwriter Heather Dale shifts easily between the ancient and the modern. While her inspiration is firmly rooted in Celtic mythology and history, her musical style is anything but traditional. Her innovative songs range from Celtic folk-pop to bluesy rock... each strengthened by her rich vocals, evocative tunes and intelligent lyrics.

May Queen is the follow-up to Heather Dale's first CD, The Trial of Lancelot, with 10 new songs also inspired by the King Arthur legends... in particular some of the earlier parts of the story: the Sword in the Stone, Merlin's early years, Lancelot's first meeting with Guinevere. This album places Heather's vocals and piano in the forefront, against a lush setting of strings, electric & acoustic guitars, Irish flute, percussion, and uillean pipes (Irish bagpipes).

The winner will be announced on May 1, 2004. To find out more about Healther Dale, please visit her site at: '> /> Upgrades

Over the past few weeks we have implemented a number of changes and upgrades to our servers that have resulted in better performance and response time to our website. The pages load much quicker and we have received many comments from our members about how quickly our site now runs! These changes would not have been possible without the donations we have received over the past few months. Many thanks to all of our members who financially support us and keep both and Highlander Radio on the air! Donations are always appreciated at:


Improved Support Options

A number of listeners expressed their frustrations with trying to listen to Highlander Radio through All we can say is "We hear ya!" and so, we have redesigned our support page with lots of tips, tricks and better instructions! The results seem to have paid off as we have received very few support emails since its introduction. If you are still having difficulty listening to our broadcast, please give it another try with our better support documentation here:
