Hibernian Radio Podcast Sat, March 9, 2019
McCann’s Irish Oatmeal and Mike Haggerty Buick/GMC/Volkswagen present Hibernian Radio and we’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day for the next two weeks as we tape from Lizzie McNeill’s Irish Pub on the Chicago river, where they dye it green every year. Southside Irish Balladeer Liam Durkin is our special guest tonight and we’re so excited about Liam traveling to Ireland with us this October for our annual trip and invite all our listeners to join us, or at least the first 40 to sign up. For more information, call Mary Weibler at 800-624-8338 or visit our travel agent here. This is “March Madness” time for Liam, a very popular young entertainer all over town and he tells us about all his upcoming gigs. He also plays a bunch of great tunes, including “Tell My Ma”, “Grace”, “Fields of Athenry” and an outstanding cover of Van Morrison’s “Into the Mystic”. Listen to this kid, he’s the bomb! Then we welcome International Rose of Tralee Maggie McEldowney and Chicago Rose of Tralee Katie Callahan to the show as they promote the upcoming April 6th Rose Selection at The Irish American Heritage Center. Urge your daughter, sister, niece, or aunt to this celebration of Irish women!
Mystery guest Skinny Sheahan drops by and takes a bow for raising close to two million bucks for Special Olympics at the Polar Plunge last week, kudos to Skinny!
Then comedian Pat Chase drops by to plug his upcoming gigs in “Houli-Town”, and we congratulate the Mighty Macs of Mother McAuley basketball on their great season, and thanks to all our pals who turned out for the taping including Pat Shine, Bill Donnelly, Declan McConologue, Mick Durkin, Grandma Kay, Froggie McGuire and Mary Ellen Duffy, Nancy Moore, Terry Muldoon, and especially our old friend from McCann’s Irish Oatmeal, Brian Galvin and his lady Sheila, thanks to all our listeners! Don’t forget the Misercordia St. Patrick’s Day Parade party next Saturday. Or for all First Responders and their families, The Emerald Society St. Patrick’s Day parade party. Happy St. Patrick’s Day and God bless you all, especially our sponsors!
