Flood Bros Disposal presents The Skinny & Houli Show. Skinny calls in from Florida to promote the upcoming Polar Plunge for Special Olympics at North Avenue Beach on Sunday March 6th, who will replace Lady Gaga at this year’s plunge? We welcome Mike Connolly of Connolly’s Public House Oak Park’s newest Irish pub. Mike and his wife Natalie are part of a mixed marriage, (south side Irish and north side Irish), who with their four kids, are planning on turning their pub into the living room of Chicagoland’s Irish community. Weekly music sessions led by Irish fiddler Teresa Shine start next Thursday so make yourself at home at this very comfy joint on South Blvd, just across from the train station. We listen to a track from We Banjo Three, they’re doing a fundraiser for Mercy Home at Chief O’Neill’s on March 16th. Also the February edition of “Today in 1916”  featuring the great Irish tenor Paddy Homan, airs on the show this week. Dig it!
