Blues Moon Radio playlist St. Patty's Day 2009

Good evening, Blues lovers...

Tonight's show is a tribute to March 17, St. Patrick's Day. For those of you who have not exhausted yourselves partying this past Saturday at festivals around the world, you can stay tuned for songs that evoke aspects of the day... we'll start with songs that have Saint in them, progress to green as a theme; then rivers, potatoes, evil and snakes.

For the one person who cringes at the thought of Ireland and all things Irish - my apologies... sincerely. Just remember one person cannot ruin a whole country - unless you are Osama Bin Laden (and you are so not).

Enjoy... refresh your screen to get updated playlist during the show...
