EPISODE 800! First off, wow! 800 of these.

Today's episode is with a man I've known 32 years now, my Uncle Dennis O'Loughlin. Dennis isn't a musician or comedian but I really wanted to have him a part of this show. Dennis has a heart of gold and has always been there for me. We caught up at home while maintaining our social distancing. We had a fun conversation including some talk of his early days in radio, Head East, Chuck Berry & much more. 

Hope you enjoy the show, here's to at least 800 more!
