"Hi Desi,


Thanks very much for your continuing support of independently-made music. It’s greatly appreciated!

Best wishes from Scotland.


Kind regards,



Birnam CD"

It's always a joy to be a guest on Dessie's For Folk Sake programme!  It has a distinct homely, living-room feel to it and I particularly enjoy the chance to talk with Dessie about songs that others have written as well as my own.  This programme is a balm to the soul in the midst of this noisy world we're in! - Eilidh Patterson

'Appearing on For Folk Sake is always a reminder of how the best music radio should be... a totally relaxed one-on-one chat with a presenter who shares your passion for good music, and who knows what he's talking about. It's always a pleasure.'
