Fox’s Pizza in Orland Park & Mokena, Guinness, Madden Funds and Flood Brothers Disposal present the Hibernian Radio Hour at our newest recording location known as ‘The Bunker’. Our guest this week is a good pal and old friend of the show’s,   James “Duke” Lynch AKA: Alamo! This is his 16th appearance on Hibernian Radio and he still has tales to share, if you can believe it! “There’s always more stories..” Alamo is a retired 39 year veteran of the Chicago Police Department and a U.S Marine Corps Vietnam Veteran who grew up in South Shore. He attended St. Philip Neri School followed by Lyons Township High School. Alamo is a man of valor, Bronze Star recipient, having lost both knees in the war and still returning to combat after his recovery in Hawaii. We all know that he is a devoted fan of John Wayne, admiring him so much that he had to repeat the 5th grade because he skipped school for a full month to go see “The Alamo” 60 times in the theater! Alamo begins this week’s interview by revisiting some of the more serious stories from his career such as the time he got shot in the stomach intercepting a robbery at a liquor store. He also shares the story about dating a nurse who also happened to be Mobster’s daughter and taking down a guy outside the hospital where she worked. He recounts the first time he got drunk at his grandfather’s wake at 15 years old and how he was badly hungover at the funeral! These two pals dive into the rise in crime and they emphasize the lack of help for our homeless veterans compared to the support for illegal immigrants  – “Nobody cares about the veterans!” They reminisce about the days before cell phones and they have plenty of tales to tell between them both about the shenanigans they got up to as kids.. “We weren’t afraid back then!” Alamo ends another great interview by commenting on the state of our country – “I’ve never seen things this bad and I’ve been through a lot of stuff in my life… It’s going down the drain!”. Houli then brings us up to date on some upcoming events including our own Annual Hooligan Ball on December 16th at Barney Callaghan’s. Hope to see you all there! The Emerald Society are having their Turkey Dinner Night on November 16th at the FOP Lodge, with music from the Larkin & Moran Brothers and The Pipes & Drums if The Emerald Society. Then we head over to the obituaries followed by one final stop at “Houli-Town”.
