Love Action's Friday Fix - The Annual All Irish Indie Show!
Céad míle fáilte! Conas atá tú? It is March, the month of St. Patrick and all things green, which also means it must, once again, be time for the annual, All-Irish-Friday-Fix! This month I'm bringing you an hour of brand-new music straight from the island of Ireland. This, of course, only represents a small handful of the great music that is coming out of Ireland these days. Most of these bands are just starting to make a name for themselves in the underground/Indie scene, and mightn't have yet made it past these shores. So if you like what you hear, take some time to click on the links below and support the artists.
On the show this month:
