WMRD 1150-AM / WLIS 1420-AM
CELTIC CAFE with
PAT LAFFAN and MARC
Saturdays, 3 - 4pm and 4 - 5pm
One’s true Irish, one is almost true Irish, and together they bring you the very best of modern traditional Celtic music.
Join Pat Laffan and Marc Gallagher as they explore every aspect of any
music containing a Celtic Connection. It’s not all just about Irish bands
and Irish music, but includes music from any country that may have an Irish
performer, an Irish theme, even an Irish lilt! Sure, perhaps they’ll
“Danny Boy” on Saint Patrick’s Day, but you’ll be fascinated by the other
great music from all over the world that has a Celtic tie. You won’t find
this kind of mix anywhere else on the radio dial.
Pat came over from Ireland in 1978, looking for adventure! Life was good across the sea, but he wanted something more; his wife had family over here, so it’s here they decided to settle. WLIS/WMRD came looking for him eight years ago to host a show based on Irish music, complementing the weekend mix of music from around the world. Today, he and Marc have a great time searching out and playing distinctive music with that Celtic Connection.
