Larry Kirwan, the long-time Black 47 lead singer, will help us raise the money needed to keep Radio Free Eireann on the air on a special two hour show starting at 12 Noon New York time on Saturday, May 9.
We will talk with Larry about his new book, A History of Irish Music, a highly personal account of Irish music from the Dubliners, to Christy Moore to the Pogues and his own Black 47. We will offer a copy of A History of Irish Music to the first 10 people who pledge $75 to WBAI by calling 212 209 2950 or by giving online at give2wbai.org.
We will also offer a groundbreaking documentary on the Dublin/Monaghan bombings that killed 33 people and wounded nearly 300. It reveals that it was the SAS and British intelligence that enabled the UVF to carry out the bombings and blocked the investigation.
We will offer this documentary to everyone who makes a separate $75 pledge to WBAI.
This should be the only time during this fund drive when you can support Radio Free Eireann and get A History of Irish Music and/or the Dublin/Monaghan bombing documentary.
Radio Free Eireann is heard on WBAI 99.5 FM and on wabi.org where every show is permanently archived.
