Kathleen Biggins has been "welcoming" listeners to WFUV 90.7 FM since her undergraduate days at Fordham University in the 1980s, when she began hosting the Irish-themed programs “Ceol na nGael” and “A Thousand Welcomes” on weekends on the university’s popular radio station.
Yet her passion for Celtic music dates back even further -- all the way to her childhood in Elmsford, New York when her grandparents and parents fostered a love of their ancestral music in the young Kathleen.
That little girl grew up to become WFUV's assistant news director during college, and, later, a news writer at CBS News, Radio. Biggins is a second generation Irish American with roots in Mayo, Longford and Galway.
