TRAVEL WITH CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS. Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans on the relaxing adventure of a lifetime. We don't see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to know the region through its culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos. We’re going to Scotland in 2021. Join the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/

If you enjoy the music in this show, please show your support. Buy music and merch. Follow me on Spotify. And tell a friend.

You can also join the Gunn Runners Club on Patreon. You get first access to rough cuts of new music. Once a week, you will get a bonus podcast of Stories from the Road. Your support pays for the production and promotion of my music and the podcast, and it pays for my time in producing this show. You get it all for as little $5 per month. Learn more on Patreon.

Special thanks to my newest patrons: author DJ Jameson Smith, Troy K, Melinda & Jeremiah Westly, and Brian O. Follow the link in the shownotes.

31:40 - SONG: “The Last Jedi Drinking Song” from I Will Not Sing Along

PUB CHAT

Rachel Bryant posted a picture of her with my Irish Force Quote shirt. I asked if I could share.

What does an amazing Star Wars Day look like to you?

Christi Chalmers replied: "It was supposed to look like a day at Galaxy's Edge building lightsabers, but of course we had to reschedule. Now I'll be turning 40 there instead, as long as they're open in September!"

Janine Rinker replied: "My student has finished his final. But really I'm waiting for towel day (May 25th)."
