Have they released the schedule for Saint Patrick's day yet ?
SIRIUS Satellite Radio - Rock Radio ? Listen to Rock Music Station on Sirius Satellite Radio ? Spectrum
Celebrate the music of Ireland on SIRIUS XM with St. Patty's Day Radio, a day-long event starting Wednesday, March 17, at 6 am ET.

Also hear special segments from Irish and Irish-American celebrities sharing their favorite Irish tunes and St. Patrick's Day memories and traditions.
Thanks Arron !
I'll check it out, but I wonder why they aren't doing it on the Village
I listened to a little of this today and it was okay, but in true sirius faction they couldn't skip the rock and roll and it kind of effected the vibe.
U2 and Sinead O'Conner are Irish, their music is not. When they did XM Green on Fine Tuning and Radio Ireland on the Village they didn't mix in the rock and I think it was better.
I agree... I enjoyed it more for the true sounds of Irish music, than for the Van Morrison / U2 type stuff. And I certainly understand why they played that.
I always enjoy special holiday programming like this!
Very cool different type music. I enjoyed it. 4 of 5 stars.
