From the first classic notes of THE BAND'S multi-platinum song, THE WEIGHT, you will hear and know that this is an exciting, new broadcast celebrating the joy of the quintessential Jersey Shore musical legacy of Tony Mart's.  Hear the history of the music of our lives and insights on the latest history making events and concerts that continue "The Good Times" of our lives. Share delicious culinary creations with the love of friends gathering together; savor the finest food - how to make it and where to enjoy it.

Music, food and fun with good time banter and informative insights about wines, craft beers of the world, delicate preparations, flavor fusions, rootsy road food, traditional feasting, decadent delicious classics and the wines, beers and cocktails to best compliment them.   For two hours we will share the good life, La Dolce Vita, La Joie de Vivre! At Tony Mart's and every day in New Orleans they say "Let the Good Times Roll!" with sensational gourmand experiences and the excitement of gathering, sharing and tasting superb moments punctuated by live musical performance and the camaraderie of our extended family of friends.

Continuing the themes of excellence with recommendations for wine and liquor libations, seasonal news about Jersey Fresh produce and  familiar styles of novel and informative interviews, Let the Good Times Roll! will focus on cooking discussions, recipes and tastings and remote transmissions broadcast at great restaurants from Italy to Tucson!  Of course there will be savory slices of New Orleans and Southern flavors and rhythms added to the cultural gumbo.

With many musical and culinary celebrities contributing, regular co-host, Chef Richard Spurlock, and calls from our many friends and fans, this new show will continue our traditions of excellence and enjoyment of The Tony Mart Legacy and the friendship and love and our community..  We will make you hungry for good times, the best food and phenomenal musical performances.

With the hugely successful production of our 35th large scale free concert in 2022 at the Good Old Days Festival on Saturday, 10 September, we would like to thank so many people including the City of Somers Point, the Somers Point Historical Society, the Billy Walton Band the Danny Eyer Band, Patty Blee and all of you for making it an warm and wonderful summer of free headliner concerts. As they say in New Orleans all y'all! Thank you all!
We are presenting 2 pre-recorded shows on September 17 and 24th. On October 1 we will rebroadcast the show about The Cruisers 40th Anniversary. We are about to segue into the travel part of our lives and continue to share the good times with all of you on the radio show and the newly redesigned which should be completed by the end of next month thanks to our webmaster and the tremendous efforts of "The Grizz" Terri Vizzone, who has worked tirelessly this summer to bring our social media to its highest level ever.
We look forward to broadcasting with her from Tucson in November. Before we get there we will feature much more information about the eight great wines now available at Circle Liquor at drastically reduced club prices after we previewed them at the Good Old Days with our first ever Circle Liquor Wine Garden and Tasting. The Circle Liquor Wine Garden and Tasting special wine list is below to take to Circle Liquor and buy the Wines at these seriously discounted prices.
We will welcome our 47 year expert financial advisor and insurance agent, Richard Gerber to the show on September 17 to help you with your fall and end of the year considerations as well as the open enrollment for Medicare supplements and important information about the new, advantageous long-term healthcare insurance plans. 
On September 24 we will have our dear friend and former Somers Point City Council President, Kirk Gerety on the show to recap the tremendous excitement and fun of the Good Old Days which the Historical Society sponsored and underwrote.
We will review Rocktoberfest weekend including the Friday night concert at the VFW presented by Tony Mart Cares and the volunteers of the Beach Concert Committee at the request of your city leaders including Councilman Rick DePamphilis, Mayor Jack Glasser and City Council President Janice Johnston. The concert that evening will feature a new show produced by the Danny Eyer Band entitled "McCartney versus Lennon: Jammin' The Beatles" featuring Rich "Megahurtz" Kurtz as McCartney, Guy "Ringo" Merollo and Danny Eyer playing the John Lennon guitar. The doors will open at 6:30 and it is free and open seating with no reservations. The show will start at approximately 7 PM and you can bring extra seating just in case. The best part is this Friday night "Rocktoberfest" Concert will kick off a weekend that includes the Somers Point Historical Society's "Horsepower by the Bay" classic car, classic boat, and hot rod show, 10 - 3 PM on our historic Bayfront, Harbor Lane and Bay Avenue.
While you are listening to the show on October 1, we will be in the place where Tony Mart was born, Naso Capo D'Orlando Sicily. On September 24th show we will talk about the earliest roots of what has become the living legacy of Tony Mart's and Somers Point's rich, history of musical culture that we celebrate to this day, 90 years after Tony Mart, Antonino Marotta, arrived in America and 40 years after the original Tony Mart establishment was closed. We want to share with our many Marotta family members and friends the proud legacy of Tony Mart's beginning with a small piano bar where Schicks Tavern stood in 1944 when the Tony Mart legacy began evolving at 939 Bay Ave. Somers Point from a small piano bar to the place that had Italian and popular combos that became big swing and then rock and roll, rhythm and blues and ultimately huge and historically popular headliners that made Tony Mart's the most famous and celebrated nightclub at the Jersey Shore 
Before we get to Sicily we will be in our beloved Roma, the eternal city, Napoli, Athens, the Greek islands and Turkey where we will visit and pray at the house of The Virgin Mary and Saint Paul. We will have rich and savory memories to share and most of all we will be ready to look forward to our Rocktoberfest Concert October 14; a new Tony Mart event to be announced for the holiday season and Spring events leading to the June 16, 2023 opening concert at the Somers Point Beach!
