A Washington radio staple since 2008 on 1500AM Sundays at 11:00 a.m., Foodie and the Beast – starring Nycci and David Nellis, cohosts of the DC area’s one and only, food and wine variety show – has come to Full Service Radio as Industry Night with Foodie and the Beast. While the broadcast version of the show has brief segments featuring locally , nationally and globally renowned chefs, restaurateurs, mixologists, somms, distiller, brewmasters, pitmasters and much more, Foodie and the Beast: Industry Night instead will be a long-talk formatted show, with in-depth looks at trends and trendmakers across the landscape for edibles, potables, hospitality and more.
It’s summer (almost) season, and everyone is getting his or her balcony, deck, pool (if you’re lucky enough) and backyard ready for grilling season. That being said (and also because we just bought our new Weber!), we thought it made sense to dedicate a show to that great American pastime: BBQ! Our guests are Jim Shahin is the Smoke Signals barbecue and grilling columnist for the Washington Post and Joe Neuman, owner and pit master of Sloppy Mama’s a (you guessed it!), premier, DC area BBQ spot (food truck, actually).
