ThistleRadio is a 24/7 channel devoted to music from Celtic roots. In more than three decades hosting The Thistle & Shamrock, I've listened to thousands of albums. For ThistleRadio, I reach into my music archive to hand-pick songs and instrumentals by passionate performers from across the decades.

Fresh from the mailbox, I'll introduce artists from a rising tide of modern talent, as well as bring you new music from the greats. The playlist is growing fast, so tune in and see where the music takes you.
