This is the week that we celebrate the life of one, Maewyn Succat, known more commonly as St. Patrick. As the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick's death has long been commemorated in the U.S. with green rivers, long parades, and habitually food-colored beer. Tonight on Windy City Irish Radio, the lads celebrate the man and his well-earned holiday with songs and stories of the traditions of the season. Tune in for music from Barleyjuice, Natalie MacMaster with Donnell Leahy, The Dubliners Official, The Irish Rovers, The Clancy Brothers AND The Chancey Brothers.

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.
