I hope you had a great Halloween. You can see our Star Wars Halloween costumes on Instagram.

I'm happy to say that we reached our big Milestone Challenge. I want to thank our newest Patrons: Kim Knebel, Jillian Hopper, Carol Baril, Alberto Negron who generously pledged money to reach our goal. And a special thanks to our Celtic Superstar, Bryan Brake. Bryan raised his already generous pledge at the last minute to secure for you two 2-hour Celtic music specials. Look for those in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, lift the weight of the world off your shoulders with awesome Celtic music from Cara Wildman, Ciana, Moira Nelson, NUA, Kilted Kings, Gerry O'Beirne & Rosie Shipley, Melanie Gruben, Screaming Orphans, Roads to Home, Eilis Crean, Bard & Company, Syr, Stout Pounders, Solasta, Coast, The Jeremiahs.
