Giving Voice To Irish Music, Poetry, Prose, Thought and Culture
Twenty Four Hours a Day – Seven Days a Week
Irish World Radio has been designed to give a voice to the popular Song & Music Tradition of Ireland. We focus on the Irish Musical Heritage Worldwide, giving a cultural recognition to our performing diaspora.
Irish World Radio will feature all aspects of our Irish Musical Traditions both past & present, recognizing that Irish music is as unique and varied in its expression as the accents are throughout Ireland.
We will also focus on youthful bands, singers and musicians hoping to make a career out of performing and playing Irish Traditional Song & Music.
Irish World Radio will give airtime to recordings of bands, musicians & singers that have given and continue to give Irish Song & Music its popularity in Ireland and throughout the world.
And in that spirit, we pay tribute and recognition to those individuals who promoted and gave a cultural value to our Irish music and song worldwide.
Cultural Control, which is part of the legacy of colonialism in Ireland, has led to many censorship issues and as a result a large part of the Heritage of popular Irish Song is not broadcast in any form. Irish World Radio intends to give those who have been censored from broadcast and marginalized a voice on the airwaves.
