Cry of the Celts

Monday • 6:30pm-9pm

Suzi Creme Cheeze

EMAIL

Suiz plays Celtic music old and new, from traditional to Celtic rock and everything in between and featuring music brought in from the United Kingdom that is not readily available in the United States. 

Music has been a large part of her life since she was a wee child.  Every one of her seven siblings sing, dance, and play some kind of musical instrument, as do her parents and daughter, who is a Celtic fiddler by profession.  "I love sharing music with our listeners locally and worldwide.  I listen to many genres of music, and I believe that music feeds the heart and soul!"

Suzi has a long history with KAFM and community radio in general. She has been in community broadcasting since 1978, and helped put KVNF in Paonia on the air along with Campbell Stanton and Kathy Hopkins. She's happily married to Billy Joe Lonesome and have a beautiful daughter, three dogs, and a pond with countless fish. Her favourite places in the world to visit are the United Kingdom, Ireland, and British Columbia (magic places all).   She goes as often as she can manage, which is never often enough!

Ranger Ron

EMAIL

Ranger Ron has been proud to be a KAFM programmer since 2008, hosting “Cry of the Celts” on alternate Mondays.  Leaning toward the more traditional end of the Celtic music spectrum, Ranger Ron enjoys rooting out the “back story” behind many of the tunes and songs he plays on his programs: why does that tune have that odd title?  What historical event inspired that song?   
 
Ranger Ron’s expresses his passion for history in many ways in addition to be a host of “Cry of the Celts.”  He is the vocalist for the Celtic band Fifth Reel, and also plays hammered dulcimer, and bodhran.  As a contra dance caller, he shares an American dance tradition that reaches back to our colonial days. 
 
“It’s an honor to share this music that still has the power to reach through the centuries and move us today.”
