So Just Who Was This St. Patrick?

Ok, we will all be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this weekend as well as on Monday, the actual St. Patrick’s Day. Some will celebrate St. patrick's weekend in Quincy's parade tomorrow, some in the Historic Quincy Business District's Pub Crawl tomorrow night, and some in the Kelly's Fun  Run for the Quincy YWCA on Sunday in Quincy.

This is How The St. Patrick’s Parade Started

It was a morning in 1986 when I was working at 99Q Radio with Dennis Oliver. He was just finishing up his morning show and I was beginning my mid-day stint (after working the morning show on WTAD earlier that morning).
