All this month, I’ve heard about the campaign to spread the news of podcasts called TryPod. As I am a voracious listener of podcasts (you can see the complete list of my current subscriptions and other recommendations on my podcast page), I figured I ought to participate while I can. So I will post about one of my favorite podcasts every day for the last 9 days of March.
Today’s podcast is a music podcast. I’ve always been a fan of Irish music of all types dating back to my childhood when I went with my parents to pubs from County Kerry and County Galway to County Kings and County Bronx. The Irish and Celtic Music Podcast presented by musician Mark Gunn allows me a weekly wallow in jigs & reels and the occasional rock & roll rave-up for an hour or so.
One great song I discovered through the podcast is “Tired By Kids” by the band Poitín, who are from the Czech Republic!
