Steve emailed: "Hi Marc, Today i was coming home from a really hard day of work, sat down in my room full of stuff to and thought about how i will be able to do all these things and go to work tomorrow again. Then i thought, well, i might as well listen to some awesome music to calm down. I clicked on the celticmusicpodcast bookmark. What i found was the newest episode 'working hard'. It fitted so perfectly for this day, thanks a lot. Especially because it featured one of my favourite tunes, the Morrisons, which i am trying to learn on the bouzouki at the moment. I remember when i first found your podcast. I was walking through the elfish woods of the alps with a friend, drinking a good irish uisce and listening to episode #151, which i randomly found on youtube. Being there with this music was very magic, and it made us fall in love with irish music (which we never heard before) and we formed a band afterwards. Thanks for inspiring us! Slainte!"
