Taste of Maplewood Broadcast

On Saturday, May 19, Food Talk STL will be broadcast from the Taste of Maplewood event.

We will be on air from 11:00 a.m. to noon. The event runs from noon to 9:00 p.m.

During the show, we’ll visit on air with many of the 36 vendors. George Mahe of St. Louis magazine will stop by for a visit.

Listen to win prizes from Maplewood restaurants and bars.

Taste of Maplewood will be held on Sutton, between Marietta and Hazel. That’s just south of Manchester.

Techical Difficulty

As a longtime broadcaster, I know that equipment fails and electrical power goes out. Still, whenever it happens it is frustrating. Happily, KFNS is back on the air and our show will be back on the air next Saturday.

Today (5/12/12) we continued with the online feed of the show via kfns.com. I had great chats with media personality Zip Rzeppa and Gerhard Wanninger (of G & W Sausage). Zip talked about dining at Al Baker’s and the old Tony’s (which was where the Edward Jones Dome is now). Gerhard talked about the tradition of offering customers a can of beer—always Busch Bavarian—while they wait to shop in his retail store on Parker, just off Kingshighway.

The segments with Zip and Gerhard can be heard by clicking the “Past Shows” tab at the top of this page. (We’ll offer our visits with Zip and Gerhard again over the air in a few weeks.)

Up Next on Food Talk STL…

Saturday, May 12:

Zip Rzeppa will visit and talk about his favorite dining spots of today and the recent past.

Gerhard Wanninger of G & W Sausage on Parker Avenue will talk about his store and his products.

Al Carfagno of Mama Gusto’s Pizza in St. Louis and in Lebanon, IL, will talk about Pizza (and other Italian favorites).

Looking ahead…

We are set to broadcast on Saturday, May 19, from the Taste of Maplewood event!
