Podcast: January 2, 2016

Flood Bros. Disposal presents The Skinny & Houli Show New Year Special as Skinny drives to Florida for the winter and Houli holds down the fort. Skinny calls in to tell tales of New Year’s eves of his youth. Then Robyn Jedlica and Lexia Kennedy of the Murphy Roche Irish Music Club drop by after recording their first CD and bring a couple of tunes. They’re delightful young ladies and also provide the music at the end of the show.

Right after Houli does a solo “Who Cares?” and “Who Died?”, Skinny’s brother, the one and only Johnny “Vegas” Sheahan, aka The Head, shoots the biscuit with us about his invention of the “Irish New Year’s Eve” which he instituted at his legendary tavern, Ye Old Southside Pub at 112th and Western from 1976-86. The Head is in a droll mood and he and Houli both express their deep admiration for civil rights leader Jesse Jackson while cracking each other up. This is a fun show!
