Today's show is brought to you by Patrons of the Podcast

There's a lot that goes into the production of a successful podcast, including Web hosting, MP3 hosting, mailing lists, Computer and website maintenance, and even some minimal advertising. In all, I spend over $700 per month to keep this show running. That doesn't even include my time in producing the show. Thankfully, there are currently over 120 people contributing over $300 per episode. This week, I want to thank each and every one of my Patrons of the Podcast for your kindness and generosity this holiday season. You too can become a patron for as little as $1 per episode and you'll receive shows before regular listeners. Go to celticmusicpodcast.com/patron for more details.
