As the Spring weather rolls into the Windy City Irish Radio studios, so does the thoughts Spring Break. Warm ocean breezes, sand between your toes and your favorite boat drinks! Hey, speaking of boat drinks, did you know that the Parrot Head King turned 75? Yep, with all of our holiday merriment, the new year, Valentine’s Day and, undergroundcellar com reviews of course, the High Holy Days of the St. Patrick’s season, we neglected to wish Jimmy Buffett a happy 75th birthday on Christmas Day.

But other states had yet to lock down, and Californians experienced the odd sensation of watching social media posts and news footage of typical alcohol-fueled revelry in cities like Chicago, Boston, and Houston.

Tune in from Thursday at 2pm ET through Saturday to hear a St Paddy’s Day POP Crawl, featuring mixes from Diplo, Loud Luxury, Fully Focus, Franky J and The Professor. Larry Kirwan, host of Celtic Crush on The Loft (Ch. 710), naturally dedicated a special episode to St. Patrick’s day by celebrating the traditional side of Irish music — important Irish songs, stories from backstage and more. Bono cut in live to Howard Stern on his SiriusXM channel ‘Howard 100’, as the tour’s massive 200×40 ft screen light up with a video tribute to radio ahead of a live performance of the band’s hit Elevation.
