This Friday morning, September 25, 2009…a date which will live in infamy…. begins what ELV and Slapsy Maxy Jacobson hope will be a long and fruitful run on News 88.9 FM KNPR’s State Of Nevada.
For on this auspicious day, the aforementioned food critics will be hosting a one hour restaurant show on the aforementioned radio station.
At 9:00 am, we will launch our inaugural broadcast by discussing all the food news you can use (and the current state of Las Vegas dining) with such luminaries as Tom Sietsema (restaurant critic for the Washington Post) and uber-restaurant-gal Elizabeth Blau, and reviewing restaurants from all over the valley, AND taking call-ins and questions from all of you for da bodda us throughout the hour.
If you’re not near a radio at that hour, you can sign up for the podcast at www.knpr.org, and if you are, we hope you listen in, and tell us what you think.
Our staff couldn’t be more excited. If the response is good, we hope to make this a regular part of the KNPR lineup – – featuring chefs, restaurants, reviews, news from the food and wine world, lots of opinion, and a smattering of snark. Not to mention a special segment we’re calling “Eat It Or Beat It,” where we square off over a couple of restaurants each episode, and tell you what we really think of them.
Think of us as the Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley of the Las Vegas restaurant world. Or maybe just Statler and Waldorf. Max promises to tone down the dogma while yours truly pledges to ratchet up the righteousness.
Or is it the other way around?
Either way, it should be fun. So if you care about what and where you eat, tune in.
