Magic Taste of Butterbeer, Beer, Beer
And now for something not quite completely different. Every week, I play a free video show called Coffee with The Celtfather. Last week I featured "Sci Fi Drinks". I parodied the song "Beer, Beer, Beer" with a Harry Potter twist. You can hear the entire show in this podcast episode.
I introduce a new listener comments feature. I share a tip on how you can promote your favorite band with streaming music. And I rant on impossible goals and why we need them. After the Coffee show, you can hear Celtic music from Catherine Koehler, Syncopaths, The Selkie Girls, and Kilted Kings.
