Show 068 – Animal Magnetism (2019-07-06)

posted in: Past Shows

This week, it’s songs and tunes about our furry friends. Whether they moo, mew, woof, squeak, or bleat, we’ve dug up enough fun music about animals that we would have several weeks’ worth of good material. We’ve distilled our list down to an excellent show that will make you want to hurry to the animal shelter and pick out a new best friend.This time around, we chose tracks from Na Rósaí, Gerry O’Connor, The Dogwatch Nautical Band, Great Big Sea, Poor Man’s Gambit, Joe Burke, Mary McNamara And Sorcha Costello, Slide, Karen Tweed & Tom McElvogue, Molly’s Revenge, The Alt, Danú, Nuala Kennedy, and Altan.
