Patrick wrote: "Hi Marc Gunn. My name is Patrick and I really love your podcast although you play too many instrumentals for my taste. Still it's a great podcast and I love it. I also like you music from you personally. My favorite I think is Lord of the Pounce. By the way, look for the band The Irish Rovers. They have some really good songs, especially on their Irish Gems collection album. Keep on playing the Celtic music and thanks for the podcast!"
