Ron Foligno shares his story at an Arizona Storytellers event.

KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series. 

Ron Foligno can’t remember the last time he and his father said I love you to each other. In fact, Foligno 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 Foligno 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 July 11, 2016, at the Crescent Ballroom in Downtown Phoenix.
