For most Americans, the summer seasons kicks off with back yard barbecues, opening of the summer cottage, and busting out the ol' fishing tackle. But for Irish Americans, the summer kick-off starts with a 31-staple on Chicago's southwest side, The Gaelic Park Irish Fest. This summer classic runs from Friday, May 26th through Monday, May 29th. Join Mike and Tim as they feature music from Gaelic Park Irish bands such as Socks In the Frying Pan, Makem and Spain, JigJam, Joe McShane, Chicago Reel, and The Fenians plus music from upcoming concerts including Byrne and Kelly, Coast, Mundy, Emily Cavanagh, and a Memorial Day classic from the Elders. The season kick off is right here, on Wednesday nights on 1240AM or on our website at www.windycityirishradio.com.

This is probably one of the best Irish shows!
This show has some pretty awesome content. Many of the local Irish shows feature Irish music as traditional only. WCIR features Irish musicians from a variety of musical genres including Imelda May, Van Morrison, U2, Tupelo, We Banjo 3, and so much more. This is really a very entertaining and educational show.
