American Italian Radio (AIR) is a weekly, 60 minute show each Wed. at 8pm. The motto, “You’re on the AIR”, plays on the name of American Italian Radio. Contrary to the familiar phrasing “Italian American”, the show puts America first, yet highlights a strong focus on the Italian culture and traditions which molds and influences all of us. Each week the hosts talk to a guest of American Italian heritage. The show is programed with one guest for each show, and for the hosts to drive conversations along 3 main themes; The Now – The Traditions – The New. Seasonality will drive specific shows, especially during holidays and traditional family events such as Christenings, weddings, and of course funerals. Listeners will be encouraged to write chat messages into the show to engage the hosts and the guests
