Saturday evenings wouldn't be the same without 'Celtic Heartbeat', even though the reception in my area is abysmal.

Well done, Frank.

Good to see the Great Man get his due. Hope the Beeb might remember him for some tv music shows too.

Rhiannon - thanks for that.

Unfortunately I'm not online at home and I can't really 'listen again' in the office! Still, I'm pleasantly surprised that I can pick up Radio Wales at all. Sometimes it's as clear as a bell, other times it's like listening to three conversations at once inside a canning factory!

Hiya Folkfriends.
Les Sulliven kindly alerted me to these lovely messages.
Thank you very much indeed.
We had a great welcome from the warmhearted people at the Celtic Media Festival and proudly brought the "Radio Personality of the Year" trophy home to Wales.
I am surprised, shocked, and thrilled to pieces by the award.
Cheers all,
Pob hwyl i chi gyd.

Well deserved Frank. I have been listening to you since your days on CBC in the early 1980s ..
I do not know of any radio presenter with a better taste in music. Long may you continue to entertain us.
