Still plugging along, Kiva 1550 radio station is broadcasting the newest, coolest way for people who love food to gab and conspire about their favorite spots around Albuquerque and New Mexico. The goal is to promote local restaurants and entice listeners to give up their chain habits and forever avoid places like the Olive Chili Outback Corral kind of spots.
This Saturday will be another live show with at least one featured guest, and yeah, this weekend it is one of the blogging bastions of the Duke City: Larry McGoldrick, accompanied by the owner of Nicky V’s pizzeria – simply one of the best pies in town.
Streaming live during the broadcast on the radio’s site, as well as available later for live stream to listen at your leisure.
Here’s the press copy from the parent radio station:
“If your loyalties lie with local restaurants – those owned and operated by our friends and neighbors, you’ll love “Break the Chain,” an enlightening and entertaining new radio program hosted by Ryan Scott. Break The Chain premiered on Saturday, May 14th at 3PM on 1550 KIVA AM and www.1550kiva.com. This weekly radio show will feature locally owned and operated restaurants here in New Mexico.
Obviously Break The Chain isn’t about breaking or bankrupting heavily bankrolled chain restaurants. It’s about breaking the chain “habit,” the inclination many have to visit the ubiquitous and convenient chains. Break The Chain is a celebration of local mom-and-pop restaurants, aiming to show the many outstanding alternatives to the familiar chains. It’s an interactive show in which you can call in and express your opinions and share your experiences. Most of all, it’s a fun and lively show you will love.”
