I discovered your podcast through the celtic roots podcast with raymond in belfast northern ireland. It all started back 2011 when I was working in the desert, with lots of my irish workmates. I was inspired and got addicted to listening to celtic music. Best of luck to your program, I'm lookin forward to be one of your patron. Cheers”

Worth subscribing, and not just around Saint Patrick's Day!

Sytze Kamphuis posted in the shownotes: “Hey Marc, there is one Celtic Christmas song that I always play in the winter. It is not just one of the best Celtic Christmas songs I've ever heard, it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, period. Seacht Suailci Na Maighdine Muire by Aoife ni Farragh from her album ‘Aoife'. Hope you get a chance to listen to it and I wish you and your family all the best for 2017.”

Jeffrey Evans emailed a picture: “On the Celtic postcast, you're always asking what were doing when we're listening. Normally, that is difficult for me since I'm either listen to new episodes at work and there is a strict rule about taking pictures inside the plant fence or I'm listening to some favorite episodes that I have permanently downloaded as I'm falling asleep. Not today. It's probably the last decent day of the year for the Ohio Valley. I left work early and just sitting outside, cross stitching a celtic cross as a wedding gift for a friend as episode 154 plays.”

Alex Marling emailed: “Hello Marc I would like to say that I really enjoyed your Irish and Celtic pub songs from your #114th podcast it was great I live in Canada Ontario in a small town called innisfill. We are mostly farming but I am a high school student and whenever I have a bad day I just go and listen to your amazing podcast I also like to say that on YouTube you look like a wooky with long hair and your star wars song makes me laugh every time. Have a good day and keep it up your podcast is incredibly amazing.”

This is the same star that topped the Christmas trees that I grew up with back in the 60's and 70's. For years my younger sister had it but did not use it. A few years back I asked for it.

Daniel E Bednar emailed a picture: “Your podcast is a common companion during the 90 min. commute to my banking job in downtown Tokyo. This was was one of the less crowded days on the train! Btw, I would selfishly like to suggest doing some episodes with nothing but instrumental music, no singing. They would be great for studying, another thing I do a lot of on the train! Keep up the great work, sir!”

Brian McCormick wrote in the shownotes: “thank you so much for all you do. At 74 years 11 months and reluctantly counting ?? , it is a real joy to still hear the music I grew up on”

Ken Brixius wrote in the shownotes: “Been enjoying the podcasts since #1. Usually listen to several hours at a time while traveling to VA appointments. Very interesting blurb about you with #285. I was stationed in Vicenza, IT a bit before your time there, 1976-78. What is extremely interesting is that the post, Ederle, has absolutely no record of my company ever being there. 62nd Engineer Company was the only Atomic Demolition company, ever! 4th building on the left as you pass the main gate.”

Johnny Berry commented on Patreon: “Marc….your podcast are always good, but this one is the best that ya have ever done (in my opinion) THANK YOU”
