Late in 2008, Cavan native and singer Kathleen Donohoe, then Chair of Irish Music Traditions (Atlanta), a branch of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann, posted the following to On October 11 this year, at a Buckhead Chinese restaurant, we had the pleasure of honoring Dublin native John C. Falstaff, who has for many years carried 'the flaming torch' for the voice of Irish and Celtic music and events in and around Atlanta, as the main host of the long running "Celtic Show" on WRFG 89.3 FM. It's a 100% unpaid volunteer position, and as such a generous act of community service, which involves a significant time commitment week after week. John was honored with a beautiful plaque. About 50 people attended the intimate gathering of appreciative listeners of the Celtic Show. We had ceol, ol, trivia agus craic, and a delicious meal.

Let's pledge our renewed and continuing support for John and Celtic music on WRFG in 2009 and beyond. Make listening to the show a part of your Sunday ritual! It is such a cool way to connect with our musical heritage, and we are so priveleged to have a knowlegeable Irish native as regular presenter.

Sincere thanks also goes out to Welsh native Jenny Hubbard Young, who hosts the show from time to time, and local supporter Dave Aton, who volunteers several times a year as substitute host. Also attending the event in October was Scottish native Kathleen Mainland, who has for over a decade entertained Celtic Show listeners with storytelling on the first Sunday of each month.
