Popular restaurant and food column Lick the Plate made its radio debut on KPRi, 102.1 San Diego on February 27. The already established column, written by David Boylan, made the radio transition featuring conversations with area chefs and proprietors about lifestyle outside the kitchen, tastes in music, and where they go to eat and drink outside of the places they work at.
“The format for this show is new and unique to San Diego,” said KPRi Program Director,Haley Jones. “With the growing interest in food, along with the rise of chefs and owners as personalities and celebrities, people want to know more about them, and what influences their kitchens and what shapes their menus.”
“Lick the Plate has always been about storytelling and radio is a perfect medium for us to get these stories out to a large audience. Chefs and restaurateurs have always had big personalities and are full of good stories,” says Boylan. “Lick the Plate radio will tell those stories and will be produced in a manner that will be appealing to the KPRi audience and include plenty of music in the mix. We will also be exploring farmers markets and other unique stories like the emerging food swap movement. Content will not be an issue with the huge culinary scene happening in San Diego county right now.”
Lick the Plate airs Monday thru Friday at 7 p.m. For more information, visit the show’s website.
