  1. I really like your music that I heard on KPIG this morning, February 12th. And your discussion about mixing Guinness and Smithwick’s is correct. And, yes, in Ireland they don’t mix Guinness with Harp, like the Brits do.

    FYI: I was in a pub in Dublin and asked for a “black and tan” and got an elaborate schooling on using this phrase while ordering a pint in Ireland. Black and tan are the colors the Brits wore during the Anglo-Irish war from 1919-1921. I could tell I struck a nerve. I was advised by the publican to use “half and half” instead. From that point on, while I was vacationing in Ireland, I decided to respect this aspect of their culture and history and when ordering a Guinness and Smithwick’s I ordered it as a “half and half.”
