Description

The "Celtic Roots Radio" show consists of 30 minutes of great Celtic and roots music, with commentary from Raymond on whatever topic happens to occur to him at the time - be it history, language, customs, personal anecdotes ... This book is based on the scripts from the first 25 shows and covers places such as Belfast, Down, Antrim, Armagh, Derry and Fermanagh in the north; Dublin, Cork, Cavan and Donegal in the south; plus London, Israel and China, for good measure. Other topics include: landscape; language; history; "'Buck Alec'"; baking; Irish "'navvies'"; European immigrants; Northern Irish humour and banter; the author's boat, "'Warrior Maid'"; C.S. Lewis and other Irish writers; "The Troubles"; the hero Cuchulainn; Listooder; and the author's family history. Get the real flavour of Ireland and the Irish from a distinctive northern -- Ulster -- perspective! "http: //www.celticrootsradio.com"show more

About Raymond McCullough

Raymond McCullough, from Co. Down, near Belfast, Northern Ireland, has been a professional writer for over twenty years, originally writing a regular series - plus other articles, reviews and reports - for several UK computing magazines. From 1990-96 he edited and published the Irish magazine, 'Bread' - releasing his first book, 'Ireland - now the good news!' from this in 1995; co-edited by his wife, well-known fiction author Gerry McCullough. His articles have also been published in the Irish Times, Dublin, and the Presbyterian Herald, Belfast. In 1993 he hosted a radio show, 'In tha Name a' Gawd!' on 96.7 BCR, in Belfast, which later developed into his current satellite radio show of music, news and faith-based interviews - broadcasting around the world on several satellite networks. Since then he's been involved in media of all kinds - from web design to podcasting, satellite and internet radio, plus documentary TV production - producing two albums of Celtic music, 'Into Jerusalem, ' in 2005 and a Celtic pop-folk EP, 'Different, ' in 2008. In September 2008, Raymond began producing and hosting 'Celtic Roots Radio' - an iTunes podcast and web station (on Live365) - with around 7,000 downloads per show in more than 100 countries. He also produces and hosts the 'In tha Name a' Gawd!' series and 'Fresh Bread' - broadcasting each week on several satellite radio networks heard in most countries of the world. Raymond is currently working on a TV documentary, filmed mainly in Canada, entitled, 'Broken Treaties.'
