If you missed us this past Sunday on craveRADIO you missed a huge show. We invited Jim White who ran a top-notch restaurant show on KRLD and currently operates that marvelous food and wine festival, Savor Dallas. We wanted Jim to come on the show to reminisce about his stint as radio host and asked that he bring along his favorite guests. It didn’t take this radio pro long to round up some amazing people to entertain us and share some fantastic stories.
This Sunday on craveRADIO we will feature Jim White, founder of Savor Dallas the week-long food and wine festival in Dallas. Jim White is also the inspiration behind craveRADIO as he produced his own program, Restaurant Show on KRLD.
On the program White will discuss the state of restaurants in Dallas both past and present. He also has some special guests of his very own including Janice Provost from Parigi and the legendary Dallas Morning News restaurant critic, author and president of the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association, Dotty Griffith. As if these weren’t enough, we will also have a few surprise call-in’s from Napa Valley.
This will be a huge program you will not want to miss. Listen in this Sunday from 4 to 6pm on 1190am, or streaming live on IHeartRadio.com.

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children is a world leader in the treatment of pediatric orthopedic conditions, and this event raises millions of dollars to fund the hospital. Continue reading
We talked about the Food For Thought event last month, but we wanted to give you an update. We are always getting requests for event information, and the summertime is a slow period for food events.
