PLAYLIST FOR “ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARTY” (3.17.17)

20 Mar

Just about every performer and even some of the composers this week were either Irish or Irish-American, including one of the Mystery Vocalists which was an Irish Setter. But my favorite part of the show was eating some authentic Irish food – I gobbled down a bowl of Lucky Charms.
