Flood Bros Disposal presents The Skinny & Houli Show as we kick off the Paddy’s Day month with our young friend, the great Balladeer himself, Liam Durkin. Liam will be playing all over the south side during the month of March so check out all his upcoming gigs here.   Liam kicks off the show with a rousing version of “Whiskey in the Jar”, and the lads talk about his career and then he favors us with “The Fields of Athenry”, and Gordon Lightfoot’s “Sundown”. This kid is terrific, you have to listen to this big-time talent. We welcome new sponsor Jack Hagerty for Judge and endorse him mightily, so remember Jack when voting on March 20th. Skinny’s lovely niece Maeve Curran, nee Sheahan, drops by for her third visit on the show and she tells us of her work at Lurie Children’s Hospital. Then Liam returns and we talk about his energizer grandmother, Mary Kay Durkin, and Liam closes out the show with “Carrickfergus”, dedicated to his grandma’s old friend Mike Murphy, who recently passed. Next week Skinny & Houli will be recording the show out at Reilly’s Daughter, 4010 West 111th Street in Oak Lawn, please join us for a great evening on Wed. March 7thwith Jimmy Cloonan and friends and mystery guests. If you missed this show, give it a listen because Liam Durkin is one of the finest Irish singers in town.
