The Fred Stacey Show - First on 102.1 FM

On Tuesday Morning August 12th at Midnight local time, Fred Stacey broadcast the first Celtica Radio Show on the 102.1 FM platform, just over twelve hours after Radio Hafren went live...

In a recent interview, Fred was asked, how do he feel about this? "FM is a nicer sound, and its an exciting time for Celtica, I've always had faith that we would end up extending our audience in this way. It's a very proud moment for me to be the first Celtica Radio voice to be officially heard on FM." Fred joined Celtica Radio in the Easter of 2002, and hails originally from Newport in South Wales. He started in the entertainment industry in 1977 as an assistant stage manager, and has worked with many well-known UK acts of the day, plus appearing in films and TV programs including for the BBC. Fred, also works for the Health Service, and began his own mobile disco in 1998. His first taster of broadcasting happened when he went with a presenter friend to the studios of a Scottish radio station - Radio North Angus, and to quote Fred, "she let me have a go!" From then on, Fred was hooked. After a course at the Radio School - he joined Celtica Radio, and is now on our Board of Directors.

Dave Cooks Zoo - The MP's Expenses Rant!

The last programme in the series of Dave Cook's Zootime "Rants" may have made the listeners ears bleed, but it was heart felt stuff, and we thought it was too good to loose.

This programme contains some very frank observations about the 2009 British MP's Expenses Scandal, which some people may find offensive. You can read more about this by clicking here on Dave Cooks January 2010 Blog entry as a final footnote to the affair and Cookys observations on the programme.

Please remember, Cooky has a right to freedom of speech, and a right to express his thoughts.

S.E.X Live @ the Point!

The Cardiff Bay area has undergone a huge redevelopment in the last 10 years and is now THE place for entertainment in Cardiff. At its heart, in the old Merchants Quarter of Mount Stuart Square, is The Point – a Gothic style, stone built church erected around 1900, and formerly known as the church of St Stephen.

Bill Everatt says; "In 1988, I was handed a demonstration cassette recorded by a little known South Wales band fronted by Phil Jones. The tape contained a stunning recording of a song called Aeroplane. At the time I was working as a full time presenter and producer on Red Dragon Radio, the commercial radio station for the Capital City of Wales; Cardiff. And I lost no time in airplaying this exhilarating track to the stations audience of over three quarters of a million people. Since then, I have received thousands of demo discs, but without a doubt, this recording set the standard by which I evaluated all material in the future."

And now Celtica Radio brings you recorded live at The Point; Headline band SEX, plus special guests "As Silence Falls" and to start the programme a unique instrumental set performed by the Kinky Wizzards.

Squaring The Circle - Battle Cry.

“When I was contacted by an unpublished writer, calling himself Casper who wanted to submit a ghost story for broadcast on Celtica Radios ‘Squaring the Circle’. I honestly thought I was having my leg pulled!!!” said Dave Carrington.

“But it turned out that Casper was very much a real person! And this story is a poignant tale of a injured World War Two pilot, who many years later, returned to his old base to dedicate a memorial to all those who flew the Fairy Battle Aircraft. The ‘Fairy Battle’ was a single-engine, two-seat Fighter/Light Bomber, powered by a Rolls Royce 1050 Horse Power engine. As read by Andrew John.

On a sunny afternoon on Saturday July 21st 2001 at the coastal resort of Porthcawl in South Wales, the Celtica Radio Road show hosted the Newton Music and Beer Festival in association with the Jolly Sailor Inn. Singer /Songwriter and Guitarist, Roger Clatworthy, was interviewed by Gareth Anstee for the Celtica One program, and performed live for forty-five minutes. This unique event is still available above. Steve Faldo kicked the outside broadcast off with his Universal Drivetime Option, Ed Risby closed the occasion, which was a great success.

Once again, Ed got us all wondering if:-

1. He's sane, and
2. Whether he is in fact an alien, and not from the planet Earth.

He managed to achieve this outstanding feat by opening his show while running round and around in circles until he got dizzy, and fell over!
