Detroit Irish Radio

IRISH MUSIC, NEWS, & ANNOUNCEMENTS

Detroit Irish Radio airs every Sunday on WNZK 690am from 1-3pm. Listen as it is being broadcast by clicking on the WNZK below. Later, shows will be posted on Detroit Irish Radio FB.

The Gaelic League has always supported an Irish radio program. In 1997, they became solely responsible for the show on WNZK. Today they continue to be financially supportive along with many donors. In 2016, the program received non profit status 501(c)(3). This program depends on the support of its listeners. Donations are welcome.

The show is a combination of Irish music, news, and announcements. Often guests in the studio and call-ins add to the program. Occasionally, shows are broadcast LIVE from local Irish events. All are welcome to share news.

Radio News

Throughout the Covid19 restrictions, Detroit Irish Radio provided “a bit of normalcy” to its listeners. For ten weeks Kathleen O’Neill along with the assistance of Bruce Smith and Jim Henderson from their own locations produced weekly programs. Pallottine Fr Brendan McCarrick and Irish Correspondent Alfie Deehan added often with recorded segments of news and music and continue to do so regularly. Back in the studio, listeners have enjoyed guests Mary Ryan and Sean Gavin. Featured call-ins have also been received by Padraig Egan, Joni Cavanaugh, Satrice Coleman Betts, Gerard Smith. Tom Kennedy, Jenny Atkinson, Nicolas Brown, and Cahal Dunne to name a few. Your requests and input are always welcome. Email us: detroitirishradio@gmail.com. Also, check out Detroit Irish Radio FB and the newly revised Gaelic League website where the shows are posted after broadcast. We can now accepted donations on the websites thru PayPal. We appreciate your support.
