This is the time of year that thoughts focus on giving. Italian Radio Show and La Stella Foundation have teamed up to work with National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide through two wonderful charitable events. First, Feast Of Valor, Sunday, December 11th is a magical evening of dinner, music, Santa Claus and toys for veterans and their families in need. The event will be held 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at American Lake VA, located at 9600 Veterans Dr., Building 9, in Tacoma. The second event, Blankets For Hope, is a chance to donate clothing and blankets for homeless veterans. Please participate by dropping off items December 17th and 18th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Krispy Kreme located at 4302 Tacoma Mall Blvd. in Tacoma. For those who can’t make either event in person, they can still donate by dialing 206-391-9538, and a volunteer will be sent to pick up clothing or blanket donations.

Italian Radio Show, heard Mondays from 3 p.m. – 4 p.m. is broadcasted in the spirit of “The Olden Days” of growing up as an Italian American.
The show is reminiscent of visiting with family and friends on Sunday afternoon. Think of sitting around the table after a scrumptious meal and “shooting the breeze.” Dave Madrid and friends discuss food (both eating and cooking), music (both listening and singing), remembering the “characters from the old neighborhood,” and how everything revolved around the local church.
One of the richest parts of Italian American life is storytelling; remembering our loved ones who have a special place in our hearts, or those friends and family who were quirky or eccentric but we remember fondly. Join us to reminisce about Momma & Papa, Nonno & Nonna, and Zio & Zia and how they lovingly but sternly raised us to be who we are today.
Share your own antics of youth and the richness of your life now.
Italian Radio Show highlights what is going on in the Italian community: the local festivals, banquets, and events that promote out Italian heritage and culture. There are Italian American clubs that hold meetings, dinners, wine-festivals, big banquets, FESTA’s, and so much more.
The show is broadcast live throughout the greater Seattle/Tacoma area as well as streamed live on the internet throughout the world. Each week there are special guests calling in or live in studio. Those involved in the show are proud to be Italian Americans and want to share their ideas and thoughts to listeners near and far.
