ATTN Celtic Musicians. I’m looking for some good stories to share. You see, I also host the Pub Songs Podcast. I started sharing stories from musicians about their songs. I’d like to do more of those. So if you have a story that you’d like to share about a song, from a gig, or maybe even just a piece of Celtic history that you love. Drop me an email. Put “Pub Story” in the show subject. Tell me about your story. Maybe I’ll ask you to record your story for the show.

John Pomeroy emailed: "Hi Mark, greetings from the east coast of Canada. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your podcast each week. As the music plays and I come across a song that gets into my head I jot down the time and head over to iTunes to download it. I have a pretty good playlist put together!

I often listen to the Irish and Celtic Music podcast when I work on my genealogy research. My father's roots are deep in Cape Breton and the west coast of Scotland before that. I often think about what my ancestors' lives were like when I listen to the music on your podcast. In my research I came across a great photo on the Isle of Rum in the Inner Hebrides. It shows a woman touching a large rock called the "Emigrants Stone." I thought that would be a great title for one of your podcasts dedicated to those Irish and Scots who were forced from their homes and scattered to the many corners of the world. In any case, thanks for the work that you do and keep it up! Slainte!"

Chris Streeper emailed a couple a pictures from Medina, OH: "Marc,  My name is Chris Streeper. I make my living as an Over the Road Truck Driver, what they call in Europe & Ireland a "Tramper." I am always in search of good content to help fill my 11-14 hr day on the road. Recently I found your podcast am very grateful to be able to listen to great Irish & Celtic music throughout my day. I began listening at episode #496 and have been working through the back catalog. It has indeed been a much needed catharsis for me. Thank to you and all the artists who make this show possible. Sláinte,

P.S. Attached are a couple pictures of me enjoying my pipe in my truck while I listen to the podcast."
