Podcast: September 9, 2017

Flood Bros. Disposal presents The Skinny & Houli Show and we open the show with news of Skinny’s new used car. Then we’re joined by 16 year old Rachael Rutledge from the Murphy Roche Irish Music Club as she sings us a very funny tune, “I Wish I Was Singe Again”, by Patrick O’Toole, along with a few more and her voice is just lovely. Rachael’s dad Sean also joins us on the show and he tells us once again about the upcoming benefit for our friend actress Vera Kelly at Gaelic Park. Sean also tells us a funny story about the day he was banned for life from Our Lady of Knock Shrine in Mayo when he was a milk man driving a very noisy van. Houli plugs his upcoming Third Annual Irish American Movie Hooley coming to the Siskel Film Center Sept 29, 30, and Oct. 1st. Skinny and Houli discuss the upcoming show when they will return to Smith Village on Sept. 26th with Liam Durkin. Then our old pal PJ O’Dea, the Man from Clare, calls in to the show and tells us the story of coming to the USA 60 years ago when John Kerry O’Donnell brought him to New York to play football at Gaelic Park. Houli does an interview with Irish music idol Nathan Carter and they talk up his upcoming concert at The Copernicus Center on Friday, Sept. 15th. We finish up with some fight talk with Sean, a former Golden Gloves Champion boxer, as the lads discuss last week’s McGregor Fight and then Rachael takes us out with a great rendition of “Galway Girl”. Great show!
