I divided the show into two parts this week, one part the traditional Turntable For One party for St. Patrick’s Day, replete with Irish singers and musicians, Irish-American singers and musicians, and the most important Turntable for One tradition of all: me eating a bowl of Lucky Charms on the air. To celebrate the fact that this was my first live show from the station in a long, long while, in the second part of the show I shared some of the music that helped get me through the last 12 months of sheltering in place. So nice to be back, like Spring flowers, green grass, and seasonal allergies.

A St. Patrick’s Day party with Irish songs, Irish singers and musicians, a few Irish-American singers and composers sprinkled in, plus a Turntable For One tradition: me eating an entire bowl of Lucky Charms to celebrate the holiday. Could it get any better? Well, a stomach pump might have helped…although my audience may think that every week.
