SiriusXM’s The Spectrum will become St. Paddy’s Day Radio all day long on Wednesday, March 17th. Shamrock ‘n’ roll with contemporary Irish music from artists like The Pogues and Flogging Molly or dance to favourites from The Dubliners, The Chieftains, and more.

Get ready for St. Patrick’s Day with Bono himself during his The Full Irish special — a two-hour playlist of Irish music airing on U2 X-Radio (Ch. 32) on Monday, March 15th at 9 pm ET, with replays on Tuesday, March 16th at 3pm ET, Wednesday, March 17th at 7 am ET and 5 pm ET and Thursday, March 18th at 3 am ET.
