Podcast: September 2, 2017

Flood Bros. Disposal presents The Skinny & Houil Show and the lads bring us a jam packed show this week starring our old friends, musicians Caroline and Alec and their friend Mark who make up the group “Cicada Summer“.  All three of these great musicians are also teachers and their talents are on full display here. Caroline and Alec are set to be married next month and they are definitely simpatico. They kick off the show with a tune they heard in Scotland last summer “Sound The Pibroch”, that’s Scotts Gaelic for “It is Wished”, and it’s very nicely done by the trio as they perform along the river on a lovely summer night. Then they offer us a tune written by Caroline, “Walk Me Down”, which has nothing to with Alec walking her down the aisle, so she says! Next up is Maribel Mejia and Andrew Gross from the Chicago Park District to promote their upcoming “Operation: Ruck 22“, a march scheduled Sept. 8th to bring awareness to the tragedy of 22 veteran suicides every day. Then our friend/CFD Paramedic/actress Maggie Murphy drops by to remind everyone about the great fundraising efforts for our friend Vera Kelly coming up at Gaelic Park on October 1st.
Cicada Summer returns to finish out the show with an old favorite “Wild Mountain Thyme”, on this very active summer night. Tune in!
