Globetrotting started already 10 years earlier in 1999:
Popmundial was planned as a radio counter-part to ARTE TV with the name "EUROSHOWTIME" with funds from the European Parliament, the Bavarian State (headed by Mr. Stoiber at that time) and private investors. The planned radio was based in Munich and Vienna in 1999; the first shows were recorded in Munich (at Frankfurter Ring Studio 1) but survived have only the Vienna productions under the name Euroshowtime with British Singer-Songwriter Dana Gillespie, famous for being the original Maria-Magdalena in Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber´s musical "Jesus Christ Superstar" and a presenter of public Austrian broadcaster ORF, "Blue Danube Radio", which we were about to take over.

A showcase of Brittany France
with Anthony Daniel, bag pipe, recorded live in the living room
rare promo CD by Kataje with Anthony Daniels amm.

In October 2010 I picked up a nice guy and bag pipe player litterally on the street ! He was on vaccations from the marine, had a stop-ver in the harbour of Boulogne sur Mer and made some money on the streets and pubs. I invited him to play in my living room...
Well what I learned: the bag pipe player was a household name in the Celtic music industry; whopever arrived in his hometown Brest at the airport was already handed out a CD by him and his group, called Kataje.

Kataje is a fusion between rock and tons of bag pippers; listen to episode 1, please.

Producer´s Note:
Popmundial was called Euroshowtime at that time and got funding by the Bavarian State and the Euopean Council. It was a time where we were negotiating a take-over of ORF´s "Blue Danuebe Radio", an English spoken FM radio in that region. But we failed at the GEMA and went to London afterwards. Shortly we run "Radio Baden, Vienna", but had all administrative problems, you can imagine !
