Last month, I recorded an episode of the Pub Songs Podcast where I talked about the Origins of The Celtfather Name. Les Howard responded with an audio clip sharing the exact episode of the The Signal Podcast where that name was born. You can listen and hear a Firefly song in that show.

Here's some other stuff you'll enjoy in this episode:

  • I offer thanks to all of my top supporters of my Pirates vs. Dragons Kickstarter. Thanks to my Executive Producer, Rie Sheridan Rose. Thanks to my Dragon Egg Rescuers: Cherry and Pat, and Angela Hughes. Additional thanks to Fred McDonald, Kris Dobie, Randy Hoffman, Kevin Monkhouse, Jason Denen, Ruth Acoya, Jim & Jan Czenkusch, Ray Gonzalez.
  • I share some of my promotion ideas for Pirates vs. Dragons including videos, pictures, and podcasts. My goal is to sell 120 copies of the album on CD Baby on July 27, 2015 when the album is officially released.
  • I have two CD release shows. One is at Johnnie MacCracken's Celtic Pub on July 23 and then an internet show on Concert Window on Thursday, July 28th.
  • I share a few plans for DragonCon (though we are not yet confirmed yet), and GenCon. Several shows planned.
  • Album title idea: Irish Adventures on Higgin's Moon
  • Plus, I share some plans for Cornwall including a daily podcast episode.
