WTKK Adds Phantom Gourmet to Friday Lineup
August 1, 2012
96.9 FM, WTKK, announced the Andelman’s from The Phantom Gourmet Radio Show, now appears on the station’s Friday lineup from 10:00am – 1pm.
Hosted by Dave, Dan and Michael Andelman, The Phantom Gourmet Radio Show is a fast-paced and uninhibited show propelled by everyday life with a focus on food and fun. The live and local program has aired on Saturdays from 4 to 7 p.m. on 96.9 FM since April 2007.
“We’re excited to reach a whole new audience and become a bigger part of 96.9FM Boston Talks,” said Dave Andelman, CEO of Phantom Gourmet Inc. “From the Curt Schilling ‘bust-out’ in Rhode Island to ‘Bust Gate’ at Mary Lou’s, we’ll cover anything that’s topical and have fun with it.” Dave added, “Plus, Dan needs money to pay his underwater mortgage, Mike needs a nanny to handle his twins, and I have condo fees for my homes in Chinatown and Upper Revere Beach, so we all need to work more.”
“The Phantom Gourmet and the Andelman Brothers are staples on Boston radio, TV, and genius at throwing big events all over New England,” said WTKK Program Director Grace Blazer. “Over the past 5+ years, the Andelman brothers have connected on-air, on-line and in person with 96.9’s listeners and advertisers and we’re delighted to bring their family to yours on Fridays in addition to Saturdays. Let the fader begin.”
Doug Meehan can now be heard Monday through Thursday on 96.9 Boston Talks, WTKK-FM from 10am-Noon. Listen to Michael Smerconish from 1 to 3pm on Fridays.
