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.
