Flood Brothers Disposal presents The Skinny and Houli show and to begin our show our dynamic duo look forward to the week ahead including the 5k run at Midway Airport in aid of Special Olympics Chicago. Our first guests on this week’s show are newly-engaged musical couple, Caroline Hlohowskyj and Alec Synakowski. They tell us a little about where they grew up, how they got into Irish music and about their engagement story. What a great couple! They treat us to a few tunes, including ‘An Raglan Road’ and ‘Peggy Gordon’, with just their voices and a mandolin. You can check them out at the Irish music sessions at the Galway Arms on Sunday and Tuesday nights. Our second guest this week is Southside Fire Lieutenant, Kevin Cremins. Kevin’s parents originally hail from Kerry and Clare. Kevin has been a fireman for 15 years and has recently set up his own T-shirt subscription company. Every month, a new shirt with an Irish pub’s name and logo is made. Subscribe now to get your monthly T-shirt! Skinny and Houli discuss some upcoming events including the 2nd Annual Irish American Movie Hooley from September 30thOctober 2nd and the recording of the show at Reilly’s Daughter on September 21st with special guest, Maggie McEldowney. Alec and Caroline come back to play us out this week with their rendition of ‘From this valley’. A superb show this week, folks!
