‘St. Patrick’s Day Radio’ all weekend long on Sirius XM

Mary Pickels

SiriusXM will launch a temporary Irish channel, honoring St. Patrick’s Day with St. Paddy’s Day Radio, featuring Irish classics and a non-stop parade of jigs, reels and all things Irish, according to the subscription radio service.

So if it’s a wee bit of the Emerald Isle’s contribution to music you’re longing for, tune in to channel 30 from noon on March 15 through 3 a.m. March 18. The music also will be accessible through the SiriusXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online.

Flogging Molly‘s Dave King and Bridget Regan are the voices behind the broadcast of songs from Irish Celtic rock and folk artists including Dropkick Murphys, The Chieftains, The Pogues, The Dubliners and others.

In an introductory video, they discuss some “essential Irish drinking songs,” including “The High Reel” from Horslips, “Dicey Reilly” and “Seven Drunken Nights” from The Dubliners, “If I Should Fall from Grace with God” from The Pogues and their own “Drunken Lullabies.”

So from top o’ the morning until last call for green beer, tune in and sing and dance along.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
