It’s a spooky Halloween show.  Skinny calls in from Florida as Houli welcomes special guest, award-winning Chicago Sun-Times Obituary writer Maureen O’Donnell. All of us read the “Irish comics”, i.e., the death notices, every day and Maureen enlightens us with stories of some very lively dead people she has discovered over the years. The world of wakes and why the Irish love them so is fully explained.
We almost run out of time on the show as we kick into high gear after “Who Cares?” and “Who Died?” Tune in and find out why the Irish scratch sheet is checked every morning for the names of your friends.
Happy Halloween!
