Skinny & Houli Fall Preview

Football is back and pretty soon the frost will be on the pumpkins. Stay tuned every Saturday or catch our podcast for more of the greatest 55 minutes in show business on The Skinny & Houli Show. We continue to make progress regarding the potential resurrection of The Southside Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade and fund raising will begin soon to cover the costs of additional security so we can bring back this great tradition and make sure we have a permanent legacy for all our kids and grand kids in the years to come.


In the coming weeks our pal Sean Ginnelly from Good Morning Ireland and his lovely assistants Bernie and Bernie’ will join us, as we help them promote their big party on Sept. 24th at the Irish American Heritage Center. We’ll also be visiting with our friends from The Chicagoland Sports Hall of Fame to preview their big event coming up Wed, Sept 21st at Hawthorne Racecourse. And don’t be surprised to find some special guests popping up on the show in the next several weeks, including the Pope, Elvis, and Uncle Johnny Coons! Please support our great sponsors Flood Brothers Disposal, Jack Desmond’s Irish Pub, Reilly’s Daughter at Midway Airport, Cork & Kerry Irish Pub, and Lizzie McNeill’s Irish Pub on the Chicago River. We’ve got room for one more sponsor so get in touch if you want to connect with the most sophisticated and gorgeous radio audience in the Chicagoland area. Thanks for listening.

    Mike, We performed together at AST in Macbeth. I was young Macduff. (actually,you slashed my throat in each performance. I am delighted to hear that you are doing so well. I will always remember the fun and laughs that you provided. I spoke to Carole Shelley after seeing her in Caberet a few years back,but that is the extent of my contact with anyone from the company. All the best to you. Glenn Zachar
