Hi, Imelda -- I'm enjoying your and Bill's program, as always. Keep up the good efforts! (BTW, the heat's hellish here on the East Coast, too!) Oh, the next time you talk to Niall, ask him if he's familiarized himself with Eluveitie's music, yet. (I tried to turn him on to them and their Irish concertina player, but, alas...) Also, do you know fellow Windy City denizen Pat Finnegan? I got a flute from him a few years back.
Missed your broadcast - I was in Barcelona - almost Ireland, but... The name is a long story, but essentially, the brewery was named after an old dog of ours, who had a tendency to get fat during the long Danish winters, so the 'coat' wasn't all fur!
We're looking forward to hosting Goitse here (they played here a year ago, and almost blew the roof off!) this Sunday!
