    Coaches Corner with Geri Fallo - Hoboken and the Sinatra Centennial

    in Entertainment

    Tonight we're talking with Geraldine (Geri) Fallo, who, as the Administrator of Cultural Affairs for Hoboken, has coordinated a series of "Sounds of Sinatra" weekends each summer to celebrate the life of Hoboken-born Frank Sinatra, including an annual "Sinatra Idol" contest.  For this, the year of the centennial of Sinatra's birth (coming up on December 12th), I thought I'd talk to Geri and find out what makes Sinatra so special to Hoboken and what her role is in making this celebration.  We'll also talk about the various events happening in June and December to celebrate 100 years of Frank Sinatra.


    Geri has been organizing events for The City of Hoboken for 21 years, including the annual the Hoboken Spring & Fall Arts & Music Festival, the Summer Enchanted Evening Concert series at Sinatra Park, Movies Under the Stars at Pier A Park, Artists Studio Tour, Sinatra Idol Contest, Ragamuffin Parade, Harvest & Irish Festivals, the Holiday Craft Fair & much more.

    in Entertainment

    Arlene Iaquinto was born in the Bronx, New York, to a middle class Italian family. She developed her love for cooking from her mother-in-law, Lucia Franco. While observing Lucia’s passion for preparing special dishes for her family during the Christmas holiday, Arlene developed the same passion for meal preparation not only during the holidays but whenever family would gather for meals. This strong sense of family and love of cooking prompted her to write down the recipes handed down to her by Lucia. Arlene shares the traditions of an Italian family and hopes to pass those traditions and her love of cooking that Lucia inspired to others through this book.

    Will Rosasco!!! Psychic,Medium,Healer and Awesome Spiritual Counselor

    in Spirituality


    Will Rosasco Bio -   Christmas Day 1962, I came into the world with what was perceived at the time to be an insurmountable life obstacle; cerebral palsy. MY parents were informed by the hospital doctors that his chances for survival were extremely slim, and it was more than likely he would not make it. God and the angels saved ME.


     
     
    As a young child, I would often look up into the night sky, intently gazing at the moon and the stars wondering if God was looking down at him and asking God if there was a way for him to help others. One night, a small light appeared over his bed; and as the light grew larger Will began talking to “it”. The light became an angel, its wings expanding to fill the width of the room. He was not afraid... He called to his angel Michael Thomas to be with him. Michael Thomas came often and we talked and prayed together. Throughout Will’s childhood and teen years, Will would pose questions about life, death, angels, ghosts and how to help people. Through prayer, Will would ask his angels and guides to assist him in using his divine gifts, to see, feel, hear and or understand the universal questions about living a full life. Will’s mission evolved to inspire healing, understanding and guidance concerning life’s challenges.
     
    Life is full of choices. Today, you made your best choice by deciding to work with me for your new future.



    Will Rosasco
