A Chaluim choir,

Moran taing airson sgriobhadh agus airson ur meala-naidheachd. Tha sinn an dochas gun cord am podcast ris a h-uile duine, agus tha seo a’ sealltainn (mar a tha sinn’ a’ smaoineachadh) cho tarruingeach agus cho math ‘s a tha Gaidhlig, agus gu bheil daoine taobh a-muigh Alba cuideachd a’ toirt taic rithe agus ga meas mar rud priseil.
Bhitheamaid fada nur comain nan robh sibh air iomradh a thoirt oirnn do dhuine sam bith ris an tachair sibh. Agus a dh’aindeoin ‘s nach eil Gaidhlig aig a’ mhor-chuid dhe na daoine as na Staitean a thig thugaibh, tha beagan Bheurla againn sa phodcast, agus bidh iad a’ gabhail suim ann tha sinn cinnteach.
Moran taing a-rithist, agus beannachd leibh!

Micheal

Thanks for your comments and criticism. You’ve raise good points here and in other messages on the site.

We’ve noticed the tendency of Gaelic media to focus on Gaelic as well – perhaps that’s hard to avoid because of the size of the community and the insecure status of the language. Some of our programs will deal with the language – especially learning Gaelic – but we also plan to feature stories about other topics and report them through the medium of Gaelic. One example is an interview with the operations manager of a major Islay distillery on the importance of whisky to the island’s economy and culture today (Gaelcast #7)
.
As Gaelic learners from (and living in) North America, part of our goal is to provide a broader vision of the Gaelic world encompassing learners and fluent speakers alike, in Scotland and abroad. That vision should, as you suggest, include other genres of music besides traditional song. We’d love to profile Oi Polloi and Mill a h-uile Rud, for example. Traditional song and music do loom large in Gaelic culture (and in our first several podcasts), but we’d like to push the envelope and include other genres as well.

“What Happened to Gaelic Rock?” or “Càite ’n deach Rock anns a’ Ghàidhlig, agus càite ’bheil e ’dol?” would be a great topic for a program.

Le dùrachd,

Liam

I have saved this page because I found it distinctive. I might be quite interested to know more news on this. Thanks a lot!
