Tutto Italiano "Everything Italian" is all about Italian culture: the arts, food, music (traditional/modern), stories, local Italian cultural events, Italian musicians performing live...capisci? Each week we’ll welcome a guest of American Italian heritage into a conversation along three main themes; The Now – The Traditions – The New. Seasonality will drive specific shows, especially during holidays and traditional family events.

In addition to Tony you’ll hear from our rotating co-host teams of Italian American locals including: Frank Casciaro Jr & Guy Greco, Gabrielle Euvino & Leonisa Ardizzone, Mary Tuma & John Ioia, Nicole Francis & Joe Famiglietti. Warren Lawrence is an engineer, producer for WKNY.

Joe (Giuseppe) Famiglietti & Nicole (Nicolina) Francis

Joe (Giuseppe) Famiglietti & Nicole (Nicolina) Francis

Joe and Nicole are thrilled to be the freshest additions to the line up of hosts for Tutto Italiano! after having been guests three times on the program.

Joe and Nicole have been a couple for five years, married for two glorious years and have known each other for twenty-five years. The UCIAF Italian Festival on Columbus Day weekend is their anniversary. They’re the ones who had the Italian “football wedding” in their backyard catered with sangweech by the Rossi Brothers of Poughkeepsie and in honor of the post-World War II NYC wedding tradition. Joe and Nicole split their time between Ulster Park and Flatbush, Brooklyn having the best of both worlds.

Giuseppe is a full-blooded Italian whose grandparents originated in Sturno, province of Avellino, San Giovanni a Piro and Teggiano. He was born in Brooklyn and lived in Queens and Manhattan and bought the house in Ulster Park 40 years ago. Joe is a retired television commercial producer and part time real estate agent with Mary Bono in Port Ewen. He has two grown children, Ben and Kate, who now live in the house he grew up in in Forest Hills, Queens and a big extended family in the tri-state area.

Nicolina is a mutt from Midwestern parents and as a result, didn’t have a single bite of decent Italian food until she moved to NYC in 1985. She’s made up for the deficit since then. Nicole is a huge Brooklyn geography and history geek and has explored every neighborhood on her single speed 1959 bicycle.

Giuseppe and Nicolina LOVE the UCIAF!

Born and raised in Kingston NY, I have been a professional guitar player almost all of my life. I have been proud and lucky enough to have the opportunity to play with the talent, that living in the Hudson Valley, near Woodstock and NYC affords. 

 I have been a demolition derby driver, a ditch digger, and a bar owner and been honored to live a life, better than I deserve. 

 I am most proud of, and grateful to be; a husband, a father and a grandfather. 


I began my career in radio at WKNY while still in High School. It was a rainy St. Patrick’s Day in 1973, and I was called on to fill in on the overnight shift. Since that day, it has been a pleasure to be a part of this radio station. I’ve worked in every capacity of the radio industry, including on-air duties, management, sales, sports, production, and news. I continue to be very passionate about WKNY and am very proud of all of my staff. I am a huge baseball fan and someday would like to visit every MLB Stadium. I am the father of a terrific daughter and love spending time with her and the rest of my family.
