Skinny & Houli take to the phone to speak across the ocean to Dave Farrell and his son Colin in Dublin. The Farrells are the producers of the dazzling new docu-drama “A Terrible Beauty” about the six days of the 1916 Easter Rising which proclaimed Ireland as an independent nation. The film will premiere in Chicago next week at the Gene Siskel Film Center and Skinny & Houli are encouraging all their friends to turn out for this significant historic masterpiece. The Farrells will return to the show next week in person at Lizzie McNeill’s. Then the lads welcome John Richards, founder of the Irish American Business Network and his plans for holding their annual convention in Chicago in 2015. Then Katie Grennan our musical guest for this year’s annual trip to Ireland with Skinny & Houli, brings her lovely self and her fiddle to entertain as she certainly will next month when we head to Ireland. The tour is almost sold out, only 3 slots left so call now if you want to join us! Jen Kramer also drops by the show this weekend for an update on Navy Pier happenings this fall. We return to silliness again with Who Cares and remember our friends with Who Died? Tune in for a great show!
