Con O’Brien from The Irish Descendants on tonight

Interview with Con O’Brien from The Irish Descendants on tonight’s program.  Spoke to him a few days ago.  Runs about 15  minutes which I’ll play during the show tonight.  Talk about the 20th anniversary tour, recent stops in Vancouver and Texas and the concert in Kingston on Tuesday.  You will also hear about where you can meet and greet with the band after the show.  Just keep your ticket stub.  It’s in a certain Irish Pub downtown.  Big hint.

Friday is the start of the Paralympics with the Opening Ceremony.  Tape delayed till Saturday afternoon on CTV, but I believe you can watch it live on the web.  As opposed to the Olympics your bet to see things live is on the internet.  TV coverage is the most ever in Canada.  But it’s packaged into a highlights show.  So all those who teased our American friends who got stuck with NBC you will know how they feel.  Some live sports though, the Gold Medal Sledge Hockey game for instance.

I’ll be keeping tabs on it, with working overnight I should see more highlights than the average person.
