Celtic Music Radio is pleased it helped bring real-life love on the airwaves for two of our listeners who got married at the weekend.
Musician, Davy Lees and Danish-born, Eva Christiansen found love was in the air and first got in touch with one another through their interest in folk music – and programmes on Celtic Music Radio proved to be an online connection to the couple eventually meeting, falling in love and deciding to tie the knot.
“Without Celtic Music Radio there is no way we could have possibly met and there would have been no wedding,” said Davy, 56, from Motherwell.
Eva, 51, whose 21-year-old son, Phillip gave her away at Motherwell Register Office, agrees.
“It is fantastic that our love of the same type of music we were listening to on Celtic Music Radio could bring Davy and I together.
“To think Davy was listening to music here in Scotland and I was doing the same during the same shows in Denmark is remarkable and wonderful, of course, that it led to us meeting up.
“We both thank Celtic Music Radio for this.”
Station cheirperson, Alex Jenkins, says: “This really shows, in one of the nicest ways possible, how we are playing music that reaches people all over the world and that really does bring them together.
“Davy and Eva were listeners, now a happily married couple. At the station we are really so pleased for them and wish them all the best, every happiness and trust they will keep listening.”
