We are MerlinXL5Radio

Hello and welcome to our site and our community! We are MerlinXL5Radio, a small but growing start-up Internet Radio station specializing in the music genres of Scottish and Irish Celtic music; English, American and International Folk music (both traditional and modern); and light Folk Rock music. We also occasionally insert a bit of light Rock from the 60s and 70s, but Celtic and Folk form the bulk of our playlists.

Out goal is to provide our listeners with a stimulating but relaxing Internet Radio musical experience with just a small amount of talk. We truly want your time with MerlinXL5Radio to be pleasant and less stressful than that offered by the conventional radio broadcasts with which we are all too familiar.

In addition to recapping our set lists so you know the names and artists associated with songs you like, we often try to convey the historical background behind the songs and artists we feature. You will sometimes even hear interviews with artists.

Celtic music and Folk music have never sounded so good!
