Dublin calling! Legendary Irish singer, songwriter, musician, storyteller and actor Finbar Furey calls into the show from Ireland to promote his gig next week at Jack Desmond’s Irish Pub on the south side. Finbar regales Skinny and Houli with a priceless story of his first night in New York when he joined the Clancy Brothers at Carnegie Hall. Then Chicago Park Districk Superintendent Mike Kelly joins the lads at Lizzie’s to tell us all about the great summer programs all over the city at our parks. Throw in visits from the Burns’ from Boston and Johnny “Vegas” Sheahan among the crowd of fans at Lizzie McNeill’s and you’ve got a one helluva hooley to help kick off the Heritage Center’s Irish Fest that runs all weekend.
