This is a blog about humor and life within the Bronx Irish-American community. I will share history, insights, recipes and observations of the people and the culture that exists today in the Bronx. I hope it brings a smile, a giggle, and perhaps an "aha" moment or two.
A blog post about the Bronx and the Irish would be remiss if
it did not include the quintessential importance of the the most popular Irish
radio program in New York, Ceol na nGael ("Music of the Irish").
In 1974,two Fordham students, Gerry Murphy and Mary Maguire, started the program.
Over the years it has continued to be hosted by students, and they have kept
the tradition going.
On any Sunday in New York, you can hear the songs of the
Irish and keep up with the news from Ireland by tuning in to 90.7 or WFUV.org.The program is streamed online
current hosts are Shannon Spillane and Megan Scully.They do their best to show passion and
enthusiasm for the programming. Importantly, you don't have to be Irish to listen and enjoy the show.
If you are Irish and want to hear the news
from home and traditional Irish music, thisMusic of the Irish radio show is sure to provide what
you need. Let me know what you think of the radio programming and post.
