Real estate mogul Bill O’Kane visits with Skinny & Houli as they exchange stories of rites of passage: Irish lads and lassies renting apartments on the North Side for the first time away from home. Then Bill fills us in on his film investments, including ‘Snowmen” starring Ray Liotta and Christopher Lloyd; and “Machine Gun Preacher” starring Gerard Butler.
