Echoes of Erin Fundraiser

Hello Folks,

Happy Fall!  Typically at this time of year I have a fundraiser for Echoes of Erin.  Since  1999 that fundraiser has been Samhain, The Celtic New Year. This year I decided to rest Samhain for a while, then bring it back with more vim & vigor at a later date.

In the meantime, my Brookline Buddies are at it again!  They have decided to hold a fundraiser for the program.  This event will be take place on Wednesday, November 2, 2016.  It will be "A Guinness Night at the Moonlite Café", 530 Brookline Blvd. in Brookline (Zip 15226), beginning at 7:00pm.  Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at $5.00 each.  Buy one or buy 10 or as many as you want, all proceeds benefit Echoes of Erin.

Some interesting developments have taken place with WEDO.  First of all the station, WEDO 810AM has been a daytime only station for the past 70 years.  Just recently, McKeesport acquired a new FM broadcaster and now all of the programming is simulcast and can be heard on FM 93.3.

Then about eight weeks ago, Echoes of Erin found a new online presence at www.kdwradio.com.  You can now listen to a rebroadcast each Wednesday from 1:30pm until 3:00pm at www.kdwradio.com, then click on LISTEN LIVE.

So please do put on your calendar, Wednesday, November 2, from 7:00 pm and join me at the Moonlite Café in Brookline, just outside of Pittsburgh Pa. for this fundraiser.  Your purchase of tickets will really help me out.

Thank you!
