Third Annual "St. Patrick's Day/Celtic Celebration" on "Theme Attic," Thursday, March 14th, 10AM-Noon!
St. Patrick's Day only comes around once a year, so "Theme Attic," the radio show that picks themes and plays music from a variety of genres about selected subjects, focuses on playing as much Celtic music and songs about Ireland as possible. There will still be the usual variety, but it will have a mostly Irish flavor. Join host DJ Phil Maq on Thursday, March 14th, at 10:00AM for his clever and unusual takes on music!

"Theme Attic," the radio show that picks themes and plays music from a variety of genres about selected subjects, ran out of "time" last week and still had plenty of songs about time and other "related" topics left over to play, so it just makes sense that there should be a second edition on this subject. Join host DJ Phil Maq on Thursday, March 7th, at 10:00AM for his clever and unusual takes on music--and for another good "time!"
Peter Robbins, author of "Left at East Gate", is a return guest. This time, he will discuss some of the lesser known UFO and abduction cases in the United Kingdom as well as the US.
