It has been a while since we had an update, but we wanted to give you an idea of what is cooking for this year and how your support helps us keep Celtic Radio going.

We have several initiatives that we will be working on this year.

CelticRadio.net - Last year we converted the site to HTTPS secure protocol. This year we had a SEO optimization expert provide us with a report for hundreds of changes to be made to increase our rankings. We will be implementing those changes over several months.

Celtic Radio Premium - Expect some changes to the dashboard for the better - more focused. A major upgrade to our premium accounts will be an option for having a Word Press website. This will be perfect for small business owners, musicians or personal endeavours looking for a low cost alternative. We will have several website names available to use or you can bring your own domain.

Celtic Radio App - Our current App (IOS and Android) is going to be shutting down on 9/1/2024. This is mainly because of the provider we are using decided to change the terms of our contract to an unaffordable amount. While we do have our mobile website which functions very much like an app (https://mobile.celticradio.net), we will be creating our own App using a development tool called Flutter. Over the long run this will allow us to provide better services in the App. Goals is to have something in place before 9/1/2024 to atleast tune into all of our channels.

While not on the list, we will continue to work on the new Celtic Music Radio website as time permits.

So alot of good plans for this year - we are especially looking forward to the upgrades to the premium account for our members. Any comments or feedback please let us know.

Wordpress is coming to Celtic Radio Premium yearly accounts very soon.

We will only be supporting version 6.2 at this point in time, but depending on the success of this new program we can upgrade the server to support newer versions.

We have decided that all existing yearly premium accounts will be grandfathered into this program. If you sign up before we start offering wordpress in your account you will be included ($19.95 a year).

Until we get a better understanding of the demand for this new feature, once we include the option if you want to include wordpress in your account the yearly amount will be $34.95 but will include level two gifts. This is for new sign ups.

Considering some websites charge $10 or more a month for wordpress websites this may be the perfect option for a musician, small business or personal site looking to save some money.

We will also be updating our premium dashboard, site wide emails and premium signup page.

We are making very good progress with updates to our website. In fact, we would say over the last year we have accomplished no less than 5,000 individual updates covering all aspects of the site and broadcast. Result is much improved experience for our members!

Email services and WordPress sites are now available through the dashboard. Choose a cool Celtic email address using one of our snazzy domains. For our techies out there, our email is now secured with a SSL certificate, DMARC, SPF and DKIM.

SEO Optimizing is making a difference in our search engine rankings, but this project will take about a year to complete.

The next big project for us would be creating a new Celtic Radio App. This would bring control of the App over to us and also we could maybe do more things than we can't do now. The vendor we use is now charging per user. As a short term solution, we may have to limit the App to our premium or enhanced members, there would be some free accounts but there might have to be a time limit on them. This would buy us some time to develop our own App.

Looking ahead the rest of the year we will be more focused on the music and contests. In 2025 we want to develop a modern player page with all the bells and whistles, as well we will continue to build out CelticMusicRadio.com.

One thing is for sure - the musicians and independent artists are depending on us to continue this site. Not only this site, but all of the people out there supporting Celtic music. We are like a rag tag band of travelers and bards (and bardettes) trying push this genre to the next level.

Thanks so much for your support - we will continue to develop this site, introduce new features and music because of you. Thank you so much!

The Wordpress feature is available now to all Celtic Radio Founder members signed up for premium. It is not available for enhanced members, you will need to upgrade to premium for this feature.

We have not made a general announcement yet - if you want you can be the first sign up!

Go to the Dashboard and then to WordPress. We didn't add an email feature to the wordpress sign up, but you can sign up for email to on the other tab.

Email signup is automated. Just give the system an hour. WordPress will have up to 48 hours turn around, but probably alot quicker.

Everything we tested on WordPress works - it is a basic version and limited to our server. Can't rule out a few hiccups along the way, but everything we tested worked flawlessly.
