Happy St. Patrick's Day! We had a blast putting together today's holiday show. If you missed it, thank your lucky charms, because you can listen to the show in its entirety here: FATY 3.16.08.

Also, don't forget about our LIMERICK CONTEST:

Give us a limerick for the day of St. Patty
Because it's time for us to hear your poetry

This wonderful limerick of both questionable rhyme and meter is brought to you by today's marvelous host, John Selig. Remember: we think YOU can do better! Please send us your original holiday limericks to news[at]whrb[dot]org. All submissions will be posted on our blog, and the best one will receive a $10 gift card to Starbucks!
