Local Detroit-Area Internet Radio Station Draws International Audience
Irish Music Café mixes stories and songs to bring its audience closer to their heritage.
The tagline of the Irish Music Café (IMC), “Your Heritage, Your Music” seems self-explanatory on its surface, but scratch that surface and you’ll find a radio program that does much more than just spin Irish tunes.
Now in its seventh year, host Patrick Johnson, and co-hosts Dave and Erin Keem dive deep into Irish culture weekly during their broadcast, which happens on Mondays from 9 – 11 pm in Ireland and 4 – 6 pm ET in the United States. The IMC has built an international audience, with listeners tuning in from all over the U.S., Ireland, and other European countries.
“We want to engage the entire Irish community by mixing traditional music with that of young, up-and-coming artists,” said Johnson. “Then we provide the backstory, along with a look at Irish events and culture.”
Musically, the IMC features a mix of both legends and the newest stars from Ireland and beyond. When not spinning the tunes, the show presents in-depth interviews with the music makers themselves. Johnson weaves current events into the program, talking about happenings in Ireland and the United States that relate to Irish heritage. He also highlights significant historical events during the program.
