Ray Rossi

Ray "el rey de la noche!"....merely a Jersey Guy with a microphone, a transmitter, and an internet connection.   I'm proud to host New Jersey's only all live/all local/all night show...every weeknight from 11 to 3...spreading the gospel of the Garden State to every corner of the globe via RadioPup on your smartphone...on your computer at nj1015.com...at home and in your car from the big and imposing frequency modulated stick at 101.5! I've been a resident of Manalapan since 1987, and have watched the town grow. And I don't plan to move out of here any time soon...unless the taxes become unbearable, in which case maybe I'll go back to my grandmother's little village in Nola, Italy and speak in non-incoherent Neapolitan much to the amusement of the locals.

Dog Tag Beer dedicated to memory of fallen soldiers now available in NJ

Marketing a beer through the memories of fallen soldiers.

It looked like a strange way to market beer – until I read a little more into the story of how Dog Tag Brewing came about – and about how it salutes the sacrifice of one local hero

Vote: Survey says few New Jersey residents attend church

Today is one of those days out of the year when PACE Catholics all over the state attend services to receive ashes – signaling the beginning of the Lenten season.

(PACE is the acronym for Palm Sunday, Ash Wednesday, Christmas, and Easter – days in which those who don’t normally attend mass feel as though they have to go!)

However, while today is not what we learned in Catholic school as a “holy day of obligation,” it’s still a day to commemorate the belief that we are mere mortals – here for only a short while and “unto dust we shall return

Vote: Would Governor Christie make a good president?

Perhaps what we’re seeing now is the unmasking of Governor Christie.

The man who had all his children vaccinated – yet walks a fine line between mandatory vaccinations and parental choice.

The man who said the Dream Act would be cost prohibitive in 2011, only to reverse course just prior to the 2013 election in order to cull favor with a group of Latino businessmen and to shore up a possible Latino voting block

Watch: Dead man propped up in Green Lantern costume at his wake

Mondo bizarro to some – but to one man from Puerto Rico, he left this earth wearing the costume of his favorite superhero.

During the last days of his life, Renato Garcia wore a Green Lantern costume, and so it was fitting that his family decided to bury him in the same outfit

‘SNL 40′ – was it worth the 3½ hours to watch it? Vote

Truth be told, I had completely forgotten that SNL’s 40th Anniversary Special was going to be on last night.

So imagine my surprise when I started channel surfing for something to watch.
Lo and behold, there it was!

Luckily I was going to catch it from the beginning – unlike the Grammys, where I missed the first 25 or so minutes (and the show opener AC/DC)

Since vaccinations have eradicated some of the most deadly diseases in recent memory, concern still exists over the link between the rise of autism in children and the possible link to vaccinations.

Most of the concern c

VOTE: Should Rutgers host a college fair for unauthorized immigrants?

As the saying goes, “life isn’t fair.” But it may be “fairer” for some.

Take for instance the children of undocumented or illegal immigrants who’ve been brought to this country as children – and are now allowed to attend state colleges paying in-state rates

VOTE: Should the Liberty Science Center remove a book showing kids how to make a fake gun?

There’s always going to be some product on the market that will offend someone.

Take, for instance, the tapestry resembling the uniform worn by gay victims of the Holocaust being sold at Urban Outfitters
