Show 016 – 4th Free For All (2018-05-19)

posted in: Past Shows

Theme? We don’t need no theme! Katie Marie and Joe Bly each brought their own stack of CD’s to today’s show. We’re blowing the dust off some older CDs in our library as well as featuring new releases from Nava, Gailfean, and The Here and Now. By request from a listener, we’re including a wee selection of songs and musicians from County Cork in the second hour. If you’d like to hear something on our show, drop us a line at!We have started keeping a “Fair Plé” score for each show. “Fair Plé” is a movement originating in Ireland to ensure a balance in festivals and radio airplay for women performers of traditional Irish and Celtic music. Our goal is a score of 40 to 60.(Fair Plé score: 55)
