The Curtis and Kuby show riding on 50,000 watts of AM radio transmitter power — and the story of an alleged hit attempt by John Gotti (the son) — boasts of over 5,100 Facebook Likes. Jersey City Free Books chugging along in a storefront on a side street in Jersey City — and the tale of a family friend jailed for plotting to kill John Gotti (the father) — easily pulls ahead with over 5,900 Facebook likes!
AND THE HITS JUST KEEP ON COMING! The Jersey City Free Books Facebook Page does better than Joe Piscopo (3,347), Frank Morano (2,163) the radio stations AM 970 (3,072), WOR 710 (5,255) and even “One of America’s most listened to Radio/TV personalities, heard by over 16 million radio listeners a month” Mark Simone (4,819).
Why is this? Certainly it must be that Jersey City has — as an Athens on the Hudson — a vast number of residents possessed by the love of reading. Or could it be that New York City talk radio is at room temperature?
