I hope you've made Sunday evenings a regular listening time for "Across the Water"  It's from 6-8pm Sundays (Central Time) and can be heard live anywhere on the web at KUTX.org (click on Listen Live).
"Across the Water" features the folk music of Scotland, Ireland and England along with its connections to music in this country. We passed our 4th anniversary in March, and it's always heart-warming to receive so many calls from listeners welcoming a mainly Celtic show, not to mention the great financial support during our twice-yearly membership drive.    The show often has themes, from "the Irish Experience in America," and "The songs of Ewan MacColl," to "songs about birds" or "Transatlantic Connections - song versions from both sides of the ocean."
 
    Every other Sunday, I'll continue to host Folkways from 4-6pm, alternating weeks with Kim Simpson. The request line is 512-471 2345.

    ** Please remember to support your local non-commercial radio station. You will not hear folk music on commercial stations; only on GOOD, non-commercial radio which is not consumed by the need to keep shareholders happy by playing lowest-common-denominator music.  You can also help with promotion by requesting your local station to play tracks by performers you like (hint hint, nudge nudge).

CD ORDERING

There is a order form in this web site for ordering all 9 CD's by mail using a check, money order or credit card.  CD's, however, are  also available from CDBaby.com
    For ordering other peoples' CD's, if you don't like I-Tunes, I would recommend going to the websites of Greentrax Records, Compass Records or Coda Music (in Edinburgh)
