We are trying to compile a list of USA Radio stations and their presenters that do a weekly show of Irish/Traditional music. If you know of such shows can you provide a link to the station and the programme. This would be a big help to us. thanks

I have an Traditional Irish radio show that airs on WOBC, 91.5FM via Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio. My show follows the school schedule, so right now they are on Winter Term and there are no classes and WOBC is closed. Last semester, I had a 2 hour show on Tuesdays from 6 to 8pm, and had the wonderful opportunity to interview musical groups like The Willis Clan, Noel Lanegan, The Step Crew, and The Gothard Sisters. There may be an interim period during January, but I won't know any more until I receive info from the WOBC student-run staff. Otherwise, I hope to be back on come mid-February thru mid-May. Again, I won't know what day/times they will give me.  If you're interested, I can keep you posted.  In the meantime, go to www.wobc.org and peruse their website. There should be a link for shows and you can check out my playlists.

I hope this is helpful. :-)

As some will know, traditional Irish, Celtic and Newfoundland music plays a large part  in the culture of our province here on the east coast of Canada.  

One long running show is streamed on the internet and produced and hosted by Eric MacEwen

It’s streamed live every Saturday evening at 9 – 11 online from Prince Edward Island.
Eric MacEwen, a veteran DJ and music personality from P.E.I. still presents his popular Radio Show on CFCY 95.1, Charlottetown, P.E.I. The show is presented every Saturday Night at 9 pm (Island Time) has been on air for over  30 years, and Eric is responsible for popularizing hundreds of East Coast artists, bringing them to the forefront of East Coast music. During his diverse career he helped found the University of Cape Breton, where he worked as Executive Assistant to the President, Director of the University Press and Director of Public Relations.   After 10 years in University life, he left to pursue a dream of producing a weekly syndicated radio show of East Coast Music and became a founder of the ECMA's.

There are also several commercial radio stations that feature traditional music on a weekly basis (weekends)  here in St. John's, Newfoundland.

Hello!  My name is Cindy Funk and I do a weekly celtic music show called The Dear Green Place on WYSOfm in Ohio.  

The Dear Green Place has been on the air since 2005, and I play mostly trad celtic music and contemporary music with a trad sensibility.  You can catch the show locally on 91.3 fm, or streaming online at: www.wyso.org .  The Dear Green Place airs every Saturday from 3 - 5pm.  Along with playing great celtic folk music on cd, I also occasionally have folk playing live in the studio.  

Check out my station page (http://wyso.org/programs/dear-green-place) for playlists of recent shows, plus links to some of the interviews I've done. You can also find me on Facebook, under my name or The Dear Green Place.

I'm always looking for new music for my audience.  Artists can contact me at: cindy@thedeargreenplace.net
