The Italian Radio Theatre is hosted by Gino and Maria Nuccio. The show airs every Monday through Friday from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm and on Sundays from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.
Gino and Maria were born in Palermo Italy, and have had continous theatrical experience in Italy from 1948 thru 1958 with occasional participation on radio shows. After moving to America they started up their "Activity Stage Show". On that occasion most of the Italian radio programs helped to advertise their show. One of the producers, Mr. Attilio Margiotta, offered us work on his radio show and on November 1st 1960 we started to broadcast "Italian Radio Theatre". Since then they have never stopped and in 1980 when Attilio Margiotta retired they decided that the show must go on.
From 1960 to 1980 they broadcast from WSBC 1240 AM. Starting in September of 1980 we moved to WEEF 1430 AM and that has been our home every since.
The couple has continued theatrical work under a non-profit organization performing for the Italian community in one or two productions a year since 1959.
