AOW "A Scottish Christmas"

Published in 1996 “A Scottish Christmas” offers listeners a brilliant display of the tunes and songs that tap into the ancient sounds and roots of Yule, the New Year and the Christmas holidays.

The playlist includes traditional Scottish carols, wassail tunes, strathspeys (a slow Scottish country dance) and reels for the celebration of the holidays and features Bonnie Rideout on Scottish fiddle, Al Petteway on guitar and cittern, Maggie Sansone on hammered dulcimer, Eric Rigler (the piper on the Braveheart soundtrack) on Highland pipes, Scottish small pipes & Uilleann pipes, with cello and percussion.

Join KDRT radio host David Reynolds (Celtic Songlines) as he takes a turn with Album of the Week.

On a lark, I landed on your station this evening. Can you please tell me the name of the group featured in your Album of the Week this evening? They were AMAZING!!!

So sorry, but we have no idea what featured on May 8th! There was a last minute DJ change and we think something was played that was archived... it might perhaps have been the initial AotW episode, which was Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.

If that wasn't it, reply again and we can maybe try harder to figure it out!

In compliance with FCC regs, we will not be streaming episodes of AotW.

Please tune in live or check out the albums on your own and thank us later.
