Celebrate the music of Ireland on SIRIUS XM with St. Patty's Day Radio, a day-long event starting Wednesday, March 17, at 6 am ET. Join host Larry Kirwan, founder and frontman of Celtic rock band Black 47 and host of the Spectrum's Celtic Crush, as he plays music from Irish rock acts such as U2 and Van Morrison; traditional artists like the Chieftains and Clancy Bros; and contemporary groups Dropkick Murphys and Floggying Molly. Also hear special segments from Irish and Irish-American celebrities sharing their favorite Irish tunes and St. Patrick's Day memories and traditions.
I agree... I enjoyed it more for the true sounds of Irish music, than for the Van Morrison / U2 type stuff. And I certainly understand why they played that.
I always enjoy special holiday programming like this!
