Episode Info: nity. From the beginning, I have been “changing the way you hear celtic music” and providing the best service for my listeners, “celebrating celtic culture thru music”. My goal is to open the minds of Celtic music fans to the diversity of Celtic music. It’s not all traditional Irish music. It’s not all African fusion, bluegrass, alternative rock or whatever. It runs the gamut. I have a lot of trad music fans who do NOT listen because it’s not more trad sounding. I do not recommend this podcast fans who only love trad music. Sure. You may not like music from celtic women. But this too IS just one aspect. So to belittle a host, or especially Susan, because she’s promoting equality on the podcast, something I’ve long considered essential to the diversity and goal of this podcast, is disrespectful, no matter what party you belong to. Again my point is to serve my listeners. If you or others disagree with me. That’s fine. I can respect that. But I also know in the long run, you will not appreciate this show. Especially going forward. Because obviously this is a topic that needs further exploration. So I will bring it up at length. My goal is to promote the diversity of Celtic music, like I always have. But if someone refuses to open their hearts to that diversity, they will Not enjoy the show. And I don’t want to waste their time. So yes, I stand by my statement. My questions then for you are Will you choose to support the diversity in the show, Whether the artists are black or white, straight or gay, Scottish or Welsh, Indian, Australian or Japanese, male or female or transgender? Will you support Celtic women and other marginalized aspects of Celtic music and culture Because they are a part of that diversity? Will you stand against people who belittle the show because they disagree with the mission of the podcast? If you agree with all three of these statements, then I am very honored to have you a part of our Celtic community. If not, that’s OK. But again, in the long run, you will not enjoy the show. I don’t want to waste your time listening to a show that will ultimately make you unhappy. I truly hope your enlightened answers are yes. If not, I wish you a fond farewell.......
