Wednesday 12th June we broadcasted THE SCREAMING ORPHANS SPECIAL for the release of the latest album SLIABH LIAG by the Screaming Orphans. Basil presented the new album, there was an interview with Joan Diver and 3 signed copies of "sliabh liag" was given away to three lucky SchottenRadioListeners ;-)
JOAN DIVER: Many many thanks to Basil and all the team at SchottenRadio for all of your wonderful support of artists and music from all around the world. I had such a good time chatting to you Basil about everything from life on the road to travelling, experiencing new cultures and playing music with my three sisters. The support from Basil and SchottenRadio to new and upcoming artists is just incredible. It was wonderful talking about our new album Sliabh Liag with a presenter who has such a great love, knowledge and passion for Celtic music of all types and also being involved in picking the tracks off the album together. He is a true gem and myself and the other Orphans feel like the SchottenRadio team and Basil are the family we want to 'adopt' us!
SchottenRadio belongs to me..............and all the other wonderful artists and fans who tune in and listen from all over the world.
Thanks so much Basil and we hope to get to play for you all live someday soon.
Joan and the other Orphans xxxx
