friends and dear listeners (cari amici ascoltatori)!
Welcome to the "American-Italian Music Hall." I'm
your host/producer Joe Farda and every Sunday at 2:00 PM
I take you on a musical journey through "La Bella
Italia", and we visit, briefly, Italy's wonderful, rich,
heritage from the alps to Sicily.
Helping me are Italian, Italian-American, and
American-Italian entertainers such as: Jimmy Roselli,
Carlo Buti, Connie Francis, Gigli, Toni Arden, Joe
Masielo, Ria Rosa, Pavarotti, Sinatra, Dean Martin, and
many more, performing Italian, Neopolitan, or American
songs with an Italian flavor. The broadcast is in
English, but the music is always Italian.
We also present on-air interviews, dedications,
prizes, contests, and in-studio surprises when an
unannounced friend comes by or calls in. "The
American-Italian Music Hall" began broadcasting October
1987 as a hobby. I own a personal collection of records,
tapes and CDs which was started by my father and
grandfather and I've been adding to it right up to the
present. I must thank the many fans who have donated
important, out of print, copies of records because they
want to share the music with my cari ascoltatori (dear
