What I’m Thankful For: My Thanksgiving List

With Christmas music 24/7, endless commercials about holiday shopping and retail stores in full-blown Christmas mode, it’s almost easy to forget that Thanksgiving is here. I’ve always thought of Thanksgiving as my “gateway holiday” because it’s the start of the holiday season. And there’s nothing better than taking the time to gather with friends and […]

Teacher-turned-Talk-Show-Host-turned-Hoagie-Maker

My resume has been pretty focused, with just two jobs: teacher and, for the past 25 years, radio talk show host. In my mind, this was a logical career path. Both involved LOTS of talking, although in talk radio no one has ever thrown an eraser at me. But when I entered the world of […]

Angelu Lutz: from felon to entrepreneur.

Who Is On the Road to Redemption?

Growing up, I was a news junkie. I was a voracious newspaper reader took three newspapers a day for me to get my “fix” (my hands would be stained from the newsprint ink). When it came to my TV viewing habits, the newscasts and Sunday talk shows were preferable to the usual dramas and sitcoms. […]

The only question I ask when I arrive at a speaking engagement.

The Wonderful World of Public Speaking

I have been speaking before groups long before I got into talk radio. I guess speaking was ingrained into my DNA. Growing up in a large, Italian family was good training, especially when it came to conversations at the family dinner table. Of course, there is no better training ground for public speaking (or talk […]

From Talk Show Host to Theater Critic: Dom Reviews Moorestown Theater Company’s Fiddler on the Roof

Before talk radio, I was a high school teacher in South Jersey. Runnemede to be exact. Teaching at Triton High School, Runnemede was a typical middle class community. So a town like Moorestown, even though it was just 10 minutes down the road, had a reputation. People used to kid that the streets were paved […]

Join Dom’s Cash Mob and Support Fiddler on the Roof Fri July 18

I am a HUGE fan of small businesses. They are the real entrepreneurs. They create jobs. Their businesses contribute so much to the local economy and their communities. And when was the last time a small business went hat-in-hand begging for a bailout from the federal government? NEVER! It occurred to me that in talk […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dom’s Job Seeker Network: Let’s Help My Listener Find a Job

During the holidays, I devoted a show to listeners who have been struggling with unemployment and their difficulties in finding work. It was one of the most emotionally draining shows I have done. Listener after listener, through no fault of their own, lost their jobs because the economy cratered and the housing bubble burst. For […]

Putting Your Money Where Your Heart Is

A few days before Christmas, I sent a note to my e-news subscribers to wish them a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. In the message I thanked them for their support of my WPHT 1210 Radio Show, supporting the advertisers who pay the bills and make the show possible and, most importantly, to wish them […]
