Former President Jimmy Carter ate here
I'm talking about KUOW 94.9 FM, one of our local NPR affiliates here in the Seattle area and a radio station we support -- financially and culinarily.
We're told former President Carter AND his Secret Service entourage were fans of our deli sandwiches when they visited the station earlier this year.
This morning a trio of us met with fellow KUOW underwriters (financial supporters) including Seattle University, the Seahawks/Sounders, EMP/SFM and Blink Interactive to mingle, tour the station, discuss the economy and, of course, eat! On the menu: fresh scones and muffins from our bakery, fresh fruit (I'm a huge pineapple fan), a variety of cheeses, fresh coffee.
As an avid radio listener I especially enjoyed their radio collection.
And yes, all those phones you hear ringing during pledge drives really *are* sitting all over the office.
On KUOW I enjoy listening to "The Splendid Table" on Saturdays at 2 p.m. It's also fun hearing all the last-minute Thanksgiving disaster prep advice on Morning Edition during the holidays.
