Show Notes:

RJ has lived many lives all in one. His first career was in the car dealership business, following in the footsteps of his father, uncles, and grandfather. His family’s dealerships were a mainstay in Northern New Jersey. But RJ was the guy innovating on the radio with unique marketing and advertising. He did the voices himself, something that seems normal now but was brand new at the time. Eventually he transitioned out of the car business and into acting, in movies and TV. RJ also has his own production company, and tells me about handling movie production right now in the age of Covid. RJ shares stories of his dealings with celebrities ranging from Eddie Murphy to Dr. Ruth. He shares how he ended up in Ridgewood and his involvement as a board member of the Ridgewood Guild International Film Festival.
