    Larry Kirwan, leader of the political rock band Black 47, novelist, playwright and controversial columnist with the Irish Echo, will host Celtic Crush on The Spectrum SIRIUS channel 18 and XM channel 45.

Celtic Crush, long a favorite of satellite radio listeners, consistently stretches the envelope and is the only totally national Celtic music show. Celtic Crush will launch on Sunday, November 23 from 9am to noon ET.

    “Adding Meg’s distinctive voice and impeccable choice in music makes a great channel even better,†said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SIRIUS XM Radio.
    “I am excited to be bringing Disorder to The Loft,†said Meg Griffin. “There’s no censorship, no rules, and no boundaries, just the music I love and the kind of creative freedom that I think you can only find at SIRIUS XM. And I am very happy to continue working side by side with my Disorder colleagues David Johansen and Vin Scelsa, on The Loft!"
    Meg Griffin has been a pioneering female voice and a passionate advocate for new music on the New York airwaves for more than three decades.

She also championed the alternative sounds of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Jane’s Addiction. Meg has also been a video music host with appearances on MTV and VH1. Meg joined SIRIUS in 2000 and has kept the adventure and excitement of the best music radio as a format manager and on-air host.
