Do you know...

...which song topped the charts on March 24, 1958?

...which famous musician was born on March 25, 1947?

If you answered no -- or yes -- to either of these questions, then you won't want to miss The Weekender. We'll celebrate some great moments in music history, like we always do.

Plus, we'll have stories about a nationwide contest that Yellowknife has set its sights on winning, details on the Long John Jamboree, as well as a bluegrass brunch in Yukon and new art exhibits in Whitehorse.

It's a luck of the Irish weekend!

four-leaf-clover.gifSaturday is St. Patrick's Day so we'll definitely fit in a bit of Irish music to get you in the festive mood!

Also, stay tuned for stories about making friends at the recent Arctic Winter Games... hear from the blues musician who is making a trip to Dawson City this weekend... and find out about the Beavertail Jamboree activities in Fort Simpson.

Then on Sunday, tune in to The Weekender for an award-winning radio piece out of Yellowknife... hear what Yukoners brought forward to the dragons for the Dragon's Den auditions... and young mushers learning how to steer their sleds.

Plus, catch regional news throughout the weekend at 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 in the morning.
