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.

POLL: Pasta for Thanksgiving or perish the thought?

If you looked at me these days, you’d know I’ve seen the business end of a dish or two of “macaroni” – or pasta - in my lifetime.

It’s tradition to me – especially on Sundays. Meatballs, gravy (sauce to me!); bracciole, and all that goes with it

And it’s especially traditional on the holidays

Chris Christie as Governor: What were his ‘hits’ and ‘misses?’

If the saying is true that “a man shall be judged by the company he keeps,” then the verdict – as far as I’m concerned – is that Governor Chris Christie is courting the money.

Meaning an announcement as to his future plans might be in the offing sometime soon

Ray’s Heroes of the Day – State trooper and off-duty nurse save Woodstown man’s life

It may be in the job description, but still, when you have the combination of a state patrolman and off-duty nurse coming to the rescue of a man in distress – those actions deserve props.

Hence, today’s Ray’s Heroes are trooper Michael Legatie and off-duty nurse Kevin "Douglas" Frank, who both saved the life of a 44 year old Woodstown man

Poll: Will Gov. Christie’s demeanor help or hurt him if he runs for President?

For the last 5 years, we here have been treated to all manner of sound-bites from Governor Christie.

Things like calling columnist Tom Moran thin-skined (which was one of his first and milder ones), to calling out Assemblyman Reid Guscioria “numbnuts”; calling out a heckler on the Seaside boardwalk, a navy seal who tried to interrupt him during a town hall meeting – and more recently his telling a local activist to “sit down and shut up!”

All things we pride ourselves on in New Jersey – blunt, direct, “in your face

Ray’s Heroes of the Day: Two Middletown men fight house fire

Risking their own lives is part of the job of anyone involved as a first responder.
But it goes beyond the realm of a job and becomes an act of heroism when ordinary citizens take it upon themselves to break into a home about to be engulfed in flames

POLL: Is there a double standard to two NJ sexting cases?

Here’s a quick question for you:

Should a Bound Brook teacher accused of sexting nude pictures of himself from a school computer receive more than a 120 day suspension without pay; while Brick students sending nude pictures of themselves from their own cellphones be expelled from school and possibly prosecuted?

Students in Brick were warned about the consequences o

Poll: Should first time gun owners take a training course?

Some gun enthusiasts are jumping up and down with the proposal made by a couple of New Jersey assemblymen requiring those who would like to initially purchase a firearm to have a certificate stating that they’ve completed a gun safety course.

The logic behind their argument is that it’s another impediment to allow someone to exe
