WEDNESDAY NIGHT 10/15/14 AT 8 PM EST. SOME GOOD CRAIC IS BACK WITH FIDDLER TONY DEMARCO !!!
Tony DeMarco: Irish fiddler. If that sounds slightly off, you have only to listen to the music on this recording to be cured of any preconceptions about the importance of ethnic purity in traditional music. There may have been a time when Irish music in New York City was played exclusively by Irish immigrants and their offspring, while their Italian neighbors strummed mandolins and sang opera. But the Big Apple really is a melting pot, at least for some of its disparate immigrant elements. Before World War II it really wasn’t very common for Italian and Irish Americans to marry each other. By the 1950s, however, this kind of ethnic mixing was fairly normal in Tony’s native Brooklyn, where the Italians and Irish lived side by side and attended the same parish churches.
Tony was born on May 20, 1955, the second of three children raised in East Flatbush by Paul DeMarco and his wife, the former Patricia Dempsey. Paul, a grandson of Italian immigrants, was a teenage lightweight boxing star who turned down an offer to turn pro and work with lightweight champ Paddy “Billygoat” DeMarco in order to pursue a more conventional career on Wall Street. Tony’s maternal grandfather Jimmy Dempsey was a New York City cop and a son of Irish immigrants who married Philomena “Minnie” Fenimore, one of several Italian-American siblings who married into Brooklyn Irish families.
Musical ability runs on both sides of Tony’s family. During the Prohibition years, Minnie Dempsey’s Italian immigrant father ran a speakeasy in East New York, where he played the piano and mandolin. Tony’s paternal uncle Louie DeMarco was a singer who performed with 1950s doo-wop groups, including “Dickie Dell and the Ding Dongs.”

What’s the average number of times a bride-to-be pops into the same shop before purchasing her dress? “Some girls come in the first time, put on one dress, love it, then just buy it,” Cristina DeMarco of Bridal Reflections tells Wedding Planning Radio host Jeannie Uyanik. “We also have girls who’ll come in on their own and want to make an initial selection of dresses. Then they come back with their mom or best friend and show them the dresses they’re interested in. So on average, a bride comes in between one and three times.”
Hello everybody we are back and ready to start this thang off right. We will be recaping and talk about some of the shows from last year and we will be talking bout thing coming things we are doing this year and more.

It’s the season of giving—and Frat House Mike and Brandon are back on the microphones, ready to give you their analysis of some of the biggest NFL games of the week: Arizona Cardinals 12 - St. Louis Rams 6 / Pittsburgh Steelers 27 – Atlanta Falcons 20 / Buffalo Bills 21 – Green Bay Packers 13 / Cincinnati Bengals 30 – Cleveland Browns 0 / Dallas Cowboys 38 – Philadelphia Eagles 27.
Week 15 has many teams on the brink of the playoffs, while others are now worried about their potential to get into the playoffs. The Arizona Cardinals lost another quarterback, at a time when the division rivals Seahawks are starting to play HOT. The Green Bay Packers surprisingly lost to the Buffalo Bills, moving down in the playoff hunt as a now possible wild card. The Philadelphia Eagles lost their footing in the NFC East by losing to the Dallas Cowboys, and now need to depend on a Colts' win to possibly advance to the playoffs. And the Steelers' win keeps the AFC North interesting, as that division will come down to the last weekend of the season.
The guys take a look at the league’s standings and playoff picture, as well as some of the big NFL stories of the week: Johnny “Football” Manziel had a dismal first showing; powerhouse DeMarco Murray suffered an injury, as the Cowboys look to make a playoff run; and the Chargers, just never seem to be good enough.
We are heading into the BEST weeks of the NFL season, and Frat House Mike and Brandon will give it all to you, so sit down, grab a beer and listen to them dissect the Xs and Os! Give it a listen, give it a "follow", give them a shout out at 347 - 826 – 9964!
