Kicking Off The St. Patrick’s Day Weekend

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

St. Patrick’s Day is just three days away and this weekend is jam-packed with activities celebrating the Irish and all things Irish. This program to start the weekend off took an “edgier”, at times New Age, approach. The show was mix of old and new, including a listen-back one decade to our old friend Celtic accordionist John Whelan and a groundbreaking album he recorded for the old Narada label.
