The Psychedelic Circus returns to the airwaves St. Patrick's Day with a pot of green gold found at the far end of the rainbow. This month the show will feature Irish psychedelic bands! So grab a Guinness and join Doc Sandoz & Joan Richarde from 10:00 p.m. - midnight this Friday, February 17, for some mind-bending Celtic and kindred sounds, only on Montana Public Radio.

From the “Musicians’ Spotlight” archives, 2000: One of the most respected and celebrated musicians of her generation, fiddler and vocalist extraordinaire Alison Krauss visited with program host John Floridis backstage at the University Theater in Missoula in 2000.

2016 marked the 20th anniversary of the quintessential Irish-American band, Solas. That year was also marked by the release of the recording, “All These Years,” which features combinations of all the musicians who have been a part of the group over the last two decades.

Jazz piano great Horace Parlan passed away March 1, at the age of 86. His unique piano style was heard in classic recordings by Charles Mingus, Stanley Turrentine, Thad Jones, and many more Jazz artists from the late 1950's through the '80s. Join us on "What I Like About Jazz" on  March 15 for a tribute to Horace Parlan.
