Hi,

It's only 3 days until St. David's day, now is a good a time as any to contact the hosts of your local radio stations to see they will play music by Welsh musicians on or in the run up too St. David's day.

Most rock/pop stations will have Duffy, Jem, Stereophonics or Tom Jones somwhere on their playlists, if your contacting a classical station most will have Bryn Terfel, Katherine Jenkins or something by one of the many Welsh male voice choirs.

So far this year we have had confirmation from around 12 Chicago area radio stations and 19 different shows saying that they will dedicate songs to the Welsh in Chicago and mention St. David's day between Friday and Sunday.

Cheers

Dave

 







If you have a chance this week, contact your local radio stations and ask them to play Welsh music and relay "Happy St. David's Day" messages to the Welsh in your area on March 1st.

There is plenty of music by Welsh artists that are readily available on most radio stations play lists. If it is a rock/pop station ask for Duffy, The Stereophonics, Jem or Tom Jones, if it is a classical station, you might try asking for Bryn Terfel, Charlotte Church, Paul Potts or Katherine Jenkins.

Cheers
