Meet Allen West Thursday April 3 at Valley Forge Military Academy

One of the things I enjoy most about talk radio is meeting the newsmakers face to face. While the majority of my talk radio interviews are by phone, you cannot take a full measure of a person when they are just a voice on the other end of the line. You can gain remarkable insight […]

Why “Happy Birthday Colin” Matters: A Reader Shares Their Story

DOM SAYS: In the dog-lover community, there is a saying: there are no bad dogs, just bad owners. The same applies to bad kids. Kids turn bad because of bad and/or absent parenting. After spending two decades “in the trenches” as a teacher, I saw first-hand how these bad kids were classroom cancers. They weren’t […]

You have the right to remain silent (if you mispronounce a word)

Getting Arrested by the Pronunciation Police

It happens like clockwork. Every day, without fail, my e-mail inbox contains a message from an aggravated and exasperated listener. Is it a message expressing outrage over the views expressed by a guest on my WPHT 1210-AM radio show? Did they want to take me to task about an opinion I expressed? Were they annoyed […]

Wonder Why Health Insurance Premiums Go Up? A Possible Answer.

The video says it all, so I’ll be brief. How many hospital emergency rooms are treating the typical thrill-seeking, adrenaline junkies like the one you see in this video?

What I Am Grateful For at Thanksgiving

The other day I was talking to a talk radio colleague who works in another market. I called to wish him a happy Thanksgiving. He told me, “you know what I am really thankful for? The Obama Administration.” I was a bit perplexed and asked him to explain. He said, “they give me so much […]

Bring Your Appetite to Dom Giordano’s 5th Annual Feast of the Seven Fishes Dinner

For 14 years, Philly sports fans and sports reporters always heard former Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid talk about the need “to do a better job” after every Eagles game. Coincidentally, that is my mantra for my upcoming Fifth Annual Feast of the Seven Fishes Dinner. Since I decided to do this dinner five years […]

Why Idiocy No Longer Makes My “Most Shocking” List

On the weekends, I have stumbled upon a series on the Tru TV Network called Top 20 Most Shocking. It’s a reality show compilation of video clips with a different theme each week. Obviously with a show with a title like that, you are not going to see the brightest human behavior. As a matter […]
