So there you have it: my first show on The Radiator in the can, the bag, the file, or in whatever storage device you prefer. In future shows I shall host interviews with local Celtic and folk artists, (I especially want to interview some of the Church St. buskers), present you some trivia on Irish and Celtic culture, food, music, folklore, history and so-on, and play a game with you all: something I like to call "Guess the Language", where I play a song that's not in English, and it's your task to call me up and tell me what language the song is in.
I also absolutely LOVE holidays: Christmas, Channukkah, Halloween (or Samhainn, or the Celtic New Year as it's known in the British Isles), Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas in July, and how could we forget September 19th, which is "International Talk Like a Pirate Day"? (http://www.talklikeapirate.com). I have celebratory music for all of these holidays and more, so I hope you'll celebrate with me throughout the year every Saturday from 2-4pm on "The Radiator" WOMM-LP 105.9-FM.
Embrace your heritage. Embrace the World. We are all one.
Slainte (Irish Gaelic for "good health) and thanks for listening,
Edward Burke AKA DJ Seamus
P.S. you can also hear me Fridays from 5-8pm year-round on WWPV 88.7-FM "The Mike" on the campus of Saint Michael's College, a station much like The Radiator, but lacking the cool and hip urban vibe. (http://www.wwpv.org)
