- I want to send a quick shout out to RenRadio. Michael McDane Harris added us to http://RenRadio.com. That combined with iTunes, http://www.RenaissanceFestival.com, and Aaron Drake’s podcast at http://CelticMusicNews.com has earned us hundreds of new subscribers.

- Speaking of RenRadio. About a year ago, Michael recorded a feature on Pirate music at Renaissance Festivals. He broke that down into three different segments. We’re gonna podcast those here over the next few weeks. Check out our show notes at RenaissanceFestivalMusic.com to find out details about these websites and the bands you are listening to today.
