Skinny & Houli Show Returns to Chicago Radio
WCEV 1450 AM is the new home for “The Skinny & Houli Show” starting Saturday November 20th at 3:05PM. The show will broadcast each Saturday afternoon for “55 minutes of madness” according to co-host Mike Houlihan.
Lewis Lazzare of the Sun-Times called Skinny and Houli “two true Chicago characters.”
Jim Sheahan AKA “Skinny,” former Director of the Mayor’s Office of Special Events, and Mike Houlihan AKA “Houli,” columnist for the Irish American News and former features columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times, introduce listeners to the quirky characters and stories that give our city its unique charm.
The heart of the show includes interviews with local leaders who are making a daily, positive impact in our community. Previous guests include Illinois Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke, State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, Chicago Bear Israel Idonije, Soul Singer Otis Clay, Sam Sianis of The Billy Goat Tavern, Second City founder Joyce Sloane, Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist Jack Higgins, and roller derby queen Val Capone.
This freewheeling talk radio dialogue features two of Chicago’s most irreverent and irrepressible personalities, discussing what’s happening in the city each week. The hosts will dissect the news, politics, sports, and entertainment scene with their trademark wit and introduce a variety of community activists and neighborhood heroes.
“The Skinny & Houli Show” originally debuted on WNTD 950 AM last January and entertained Chicago until August when the station underwent a format change. Scott Krusinski, General Manager of WNTD, said, “Radio needs more guys like Skinny and Houli. They get it. Chicago talk, from neighborhood guys, suitable for the whole family. Listening to them is like sitting around the kitchen table.”
Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart joins Skinny & Houli as their first guest on the new afternoon show this Saturday.
