Terry and I went along to Radio Bro-Gwened to represent Chantimor and to promote our CD « Roll ‘n Go », after Shantyman Ian gave us an initial contact at the station.
Speaking ‘live’ on the radio in French is a bit like taking an oral exam; you’re not quite sure what question is coming next and you have no idea how well or badly you’re doing.
Claire Peres was very nice and asked us questions about how the group was formed, the making of the CD & about « Chants de Marins » in general.
It’s a very casual set up with microphones around a large table. Cups of coffee were offered and we were made to feel at ease.
We were delighted to hear that Roll ‘n Go is going to be the « album of the week » or « disque de la semaine » this week.
We presented three tracks which were chosen by Claire Peres: Baidin Fheidhlimidh & South Australia, then Serafina and finally Old Maui.
Four other tracks will also be played throughout the week: Round the Bay of Mexico, Hog Eye Man, Sally Brown & Doodle Let Me Go.
