"A Bronx Tale" will be playing on June 26th and 27th at the Count Basie Theatre, and in honor of the event, I was lucky enough to have screenwriter and actor Chazz Palminteri call into my show.

Wednesday night we were talking about the neighborhood you grew up in and among those who called in were Chazz Palminteri who’s performing “A Bronx Tale’ at the Count Basie Theatre June 26th and 27th. We spoke about neighborhoods and how much he learned from his characters, especially his father Lorenzo who lived to be 90.

When I said to Chazz that “A Bronx Tale” is the one play where every guy past forty who sees it claims it’s their life story, he said that happens everywhere, even in Japan. Tonight on “Jersey’s Opening Lines” you can win tickets to see ‘A Bronx Tale” June 26th at the Count Basie Theatre

What’s the movie that most reminds you of how you grew up?
