Skinny & Houli celebrate the black Wednesday Wiggle at Lizzie McNeill’s and rejoice at the resignation of Jesse Jackson Jr. and remember the 25th anniversary of Chicago Mayor Harold Washington’s death. Singer/actor/recording artist Dan McGuinness joins the lads and tells tales of his dad Terry who arrived from Eire in 1958 and went to work in Chicago for Peoples Gas, raising 7 kids in Palos and passing on his gift for song to his youngest boy Dan. You’ll hear Dan singing “The Fields of Athenry” and you can book him at www.bluediamondrevival.com.

Then you’ll hear Dan take us out with “The Wild Rover” accompanied by Houli on the kazoo. Fun Show! Next week’s guest is Pulitzer Prize winner Mark Konkol.
