Hi,

This is just a note to introduce a project that we're about to launch.

Celtic Music Radio is a community radio station, based in Glasgow (Scotland), which will focus on traditional and contemporary music with a celtic/Scottish/folk influence.

We are currently streaming a test transmission via the net - see http://www.celticmusicradio.net - and available via the "Reciva" internet radio database. On Wednesday 16th January, we "go live", and will be broadcasting on 1530kHz on the medium waveband (AM) in the Glasgow area.

Many of our presenters are gigging musicians or well-known faces in the folk/celtic music world.

We are closely associated with the Celtic Connections festival which takes place at various Glasgow venues from 16th January-4 February, and will be broadcasting around 7 hours of material from the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall every day, including music, interviews with the performers, and live coverage of all performances on the Danny Kyle Open Stage.

More info on http://www.celticmusicradio.net

If you're visiting Celtic Connections, come up and say "hello" - we'll be in the Strathclyde Suite in the concert hall, and will also have reporters at various other venues.

Bruce

We are now broadcasting live on 1530kHz in central Scotland, and on http://www.celticmusicradio.net.

After our official launch, we produced a live "outside broadcast" from the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, covering the parade and launch of the 2008 Celtic Connections festival.

We will be providing live coverage of many aspects of the festival this year, as well as our studio-based programs. The timetable varies from day to day, but a typical weekday schedule will include:

08.00 - Bob's breakfast show
11.00 - Mark Sheridan's "Festival Focus" - reviews, previews, and interviews with performers.
12.30 - Iain Anderson in Conversation - live from the festival stage.
13.30 - Hotchkiss Hotchpotch with Gordon Hotchkiss live from the Exhibition Hall of the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with special live performances from the Scottish Power stage.
17.00 - Live coverage of all performances at the "Dannys" - the Danny Kyle open stage

We're broadcasting 24x7

However from 10pm until 8am (uk time) we're on "autoplay". No presenters, just music!

No podcasts available yet, but there are some "listen again" recordings from last year's Celtic Connections on our partner site at http://www.seeglasgow.com/seeglasgow/whatson/events/celtic-music-radio-online

We intend to build up this collection.

I thought I'd post an update. Celtic Music Radio has now been broadcasting continuously since January this year. We broadcast 24x7, with "live" programming during the day and evenings (UK time). At other times, we are on "autoplay" - so there's always good music playing.

To accommodate our listeners in other parts of the world, we rebroadcast our evening "feature programmes" (7pm-10pm UK time) at 1am, and again at 12 noon UK time.

Typical weekday schedules will include Alex's morning mix fom 8am-12.00, then from 12-3 it'll be the previous night's feature programme.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-6, we have Mark Sheridan's magazine programme, with news, good music, and all the latest arts and culture news from central Scotland.

Monday at 7, Ken MacDonald presents music and news from the folk club circuit, followed by Bill Morris's "Mash" of folk, blues and americana.

Tuesday evening we have Sandy Semeonoff's "Planet Waves" - acoustic music from around the world - followed by Liz Clark of the Traditional Music and Song Association, who presents her "Travels with my Aunt" show - news and music from around the country.

Wednesday, Gordon Hotchkiss presents "Hotchkiss Hotchpotch" - featuring a mix of mainly Scottish and Irish traditional music and song. Gordon also presents a Friday afternoon show.

Other highlights include Charles Dewhurst's "No Celtic Boundaries", and "Upraid", from Barra and Vatersay Community Radio.

Our most popular show, judging by the number of emails we receive, is probably Ciaran Dorris's Sunday programme - he seems to have a worldwide fan club.


You can hear us on 1530kHz around the Glasgow area, and online at http://www.celticmusicradio.net - you can also find schedules and playlists there.

You can contact the presenters at studio@celticmusicradio.net

yes - Ciaran's show is a bit.... ummm... different.. :-)

Very interactive.

We probably get more emails during that 2-hour window on a Sunday than we do during the rest of the week. It's all part of his style - email interaction with his audience (or "worldwide fan club!) is a key part of the show.


Which is a good excuse to plug our next outside broadcast. We'll be broadcasting live from the Merchant City Festival in Glasgow from 25-28 September. On the Thursday (4pm-6pm), Friday (4pm-8pm) and Sunday (4pm-7pm) we'll be in Merchant Square, next to the Metropolitan. Music, chat, and interviews with festival performers.

Our main event is on Saturday 27th. We're broadcasting live from the Collins Gallery, Richmond St, Glasgow. We'll have guests, chat, and live music - Ciaran is one of the performers.

We'll also have a real-ale bar, from the Kelburn Brewery. So you can sample their wares, listen to the music, meet the CMR team, and enjoy the art exhibition.

And it's FREE. (except the beer!)

2pm-6pm, Saturday 27 September, All welcome. Please come along if you're in the area - it's about 2 minutes walk from George Square.

If you want more details, you can contact us at studio@celticmusicradio.net
