Podcast: October 1, 2016

Flood Brothers Disposal presents The Skinny and Houli show and this week we have a good few guests joining us. Our first guests are Peggy Roche, daughter of the late and great Pat Roche, and Dominic Owens. They tell us about the upcoming Chicago Pat Roche Feis on October 8th at the Rosemont Convention Center. Peggy and Dominic tell us a little about their background in Irish Dance and they remember Pat by sharing some lovely memories of him with Skinny and Houli. The event is free but a special Treble Reel section will see proceeds going to the ALS foundation. Our second guest is our friend Froggy McGuire who shares the sad news of Joyce Duffy’s passing and he reads out a very touching letter written to her from her niece, Tess. We’ll miss you on our annual trip to Ireland, Joyce! Our third and final guest is our old pal and retired Fire Department Chief, Mike Miller. Mike will be going on the trip to Ireland with the guys and they chat briefly about their mutual friend, Marty Malarkey. Our monthly segment, ‘Today in 1916′, is featured on this week’s show giving us some insight into our Irish history and the fight for freedom. A great show this week with some wonderful guests.
