Congratulations must go to John C. Falstaff of The Celtic Show on WRFG Atlanta which always includes some good Scottish music well worth listening to. The show never fails to recognize important times for Scots around the world of which examples are: the shows celebrating Robert Burns 250th anniversary during 2009 and the 100th anniversary of the Burns Cottage in Atlanta during 2010. Well done John–please keep it up. – Richard Graham, The Duke of Montroses Chieftain of Clan Graham in North America and Past President of the Burns Club of Atlanta and the Saint Andrews Society of Atlanta

John C. Falstaff is a most valuable cultural resource for
the Atlanta Irish community, and we are fortunate to have him.

Sometimes listeners email us to express their appreciation for what we do at WRFG Atlanta:

I was flipping channels this afternoon and discovered your show. I couldn't believe that here in Atlanta there was a radio show dedicated to Celtic music; I was thrilled to listen to your show! Great job selecting such a broad mix of contemporary and traditional songs. I wanted to thank you for putting on such a great show; you definitely have a new dedicated listener! (DG, Mar 2011)

Before listening to the Celtic Show on WRFG my only real exposure to Celtic music on the radio was NPR's Thistle and Shamrock. Falstaff's show is more eclectic, less commercial and in my opinion much more interesting. It's hard to know what to expect. A brand new release may be followed by an archival field recording. Living in Southwest Virginia, I stream the show and run it through my sound system. The sound quality is first rate. (JR, June 2011)

I just stumbled upon the station and really liked what I heard! I'm glad I found the show! (JM, May 2011)

Thanks for a great Great show! My Sunday pleasure is created by your masterful selections, organizing and pertinent info. Thanks for all the intense effort to produce such a show! (KD, June 2011)

John C. Falstaff's pioneering work makes it easy to understand why Celtic music
continues to attract new audiences. What he provides on his weekly program
are ways for people to connect with themselves and their communities
in ways that can't easily be found elsewhere in the media buzz world.
