What ever happened to Joey Ranielli and his fabulous show on WILK? Anything we can do to bring it back in the original format of old fashioned Italian American and Rat Packer era music, complete with Italian skits?

I'm a Greek. And for the short time the show was on the air... I loved Italians and fell in love with the show. Later on they were probably being forced to play modern music and things went downhill. Where is Joey Ranieli? I hope doing well.

This area has strong ethnic roots. We haven't all died! Or live in nursing homes! No, we STILL lead our lives and, oh yes, we DO spend money!!!!!!! We STILL buy houses and spend a good amount on entertainment. However nobody in the radio business cares enough to acknowledge us. Why when, as a group, we have way more money than the targeted 18-25 age group? Think about it. Also remember that NOT everyone, aged 35-65, likes rap, hiphop, electronica or "new" country. 20 years ago I never drove without turning on the radio. Now I tend to avoid the radio. Hmmm.. When an industry (radio) loses patrons there's a problem! Fight for my listenership.

I remember driving with my little while Bocci Alley's Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett played background. She loved (and still loves) THAT music. The point: A love for this great genre of music can also be acquired.
