I hate St. Patrick’s Day. We’re not all Irish today, and never did I need an excuse to drink way more than I should have (those days are over now anyway).
So, on my name day, this is just an excuse for bad behavior. Local bars open early to serve beer, many before drunken parades. Stop! Let’s bring the dignity back to this day and… I don’t know. Just forget about, really. Let St. Patrick rest in peace.
So there will be no Irish music played today. Instead, listen to these great songs by non-Irish people like John Mayall, Bobby Blue Bland, David Bromberg, the Blow Monkeys, the Beat, Bob Mould, Ladytron, the Knife, Hercules & Love Affair, Jimi Hendrix, the Jeff Beck Group, and the Yardbirds. Fidelity’s a bit off on my voice today – I’ll have to check that out, but no one’s there to hear me anyway.
This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at brennick.net. There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year. The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called brennick.net. Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
