Welcome to the Fr. Joe Podcast. This is our first one. The reason why I managed to achieve a successful career in broadcasting is because of the people that I met along the way. One in particular is Fr. Joseph A. Grimaldi, JCL. Fr. Joe saw something in me that I didn’t. He was a great mentor and counselor. I knew what I wanted to do at a very early age. Getting there seemed impossible. My Mother was number one fan telling me to block out the naysayers. Unfortunately, she never heard me on the radio. I did inherit my father’s rich “Pipes.” He was a hardworking man and preferred I “Get a Real Job."
So where am I going? Well, it’s where I went. That was Brother Rice High School. I graduated in 1969. It was there I met Fr. Joe Grimaldi JCL. We have remained great friends, and I have convinced Father Joe to do a podcast. Let’s meet Father Joe. Peace be with you.
