Ron Foligno shares his story at an Arizona Storytellers event.

KJZZ is partnering with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers project on the radio. Storytellers in Phoenix share their stories at live events in town. Some of the stories are about living here, some are not.

Ron Foligno can’t remember the last time he and his father said I love you to each other. In fact, Ron says he personally has trouble saying I love you to anyone. When he was young, his father gave him his first baseball glove. And because Ron loved baseball, his dad helped him break in that glove.

Ron Foligno is the owner of Ghosticorn Apparel in Tempe.

The next storytelling event is Monday, July 11 at the Crescent Ballroom in Downtown Phoenix. To learn more about the Arizona Storytellers project or how to tell your own story, visit
