Calling all Irish musicians. I'm putting together my annual All-Irish-Friday-Fix for March and I'm on the lookout for new tracks to include. If you're interested in being played, please send your tunes to me here:

Even if you're not Irish, I'm always on the lookout for new tunes to feature, so this is really a message for musically-inclined folk from all parts of the globe!
