GRAYLING, Mich., Aug. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Lick the Plate, where the Detroit/Windsor, San Diego, and Northern Michigan culinary, cultural and music communities tell their stories, is back on the air and in podcast format in Northern Michigan after a brief hiatus. It will launch on Monday, August 31, 2020. With respect to social distancing guidelines, the shows will be recorded via a combination of phone and on-premise interviews when either outdoor or safe indoor distancing can be provided.
Host David Boylan who will be relocating back to his native Michigan will pick up where he left off, telling the stories of guests from the culinary, culture and music world in Northern Michigan. Given the turmoil of the last few months in all of those sectors, he felt that Lick the Plate is a great vehicle for people in those industries to tell their stories to a wide audience and promote their businesses. "The restaurant, music and arts sectors in Michigan have been hard hit by conditions beyond their control and Lick the Plate has always been about promoting these folks, and that exposure matters more than ever now. I'm also excited to feature guests from culinary, music and arts communities in a far wider geographic area now. There are folks in all those areas doing great things outside of the larger cities in Michigan and we will be exploring those hidden gems as well."
Blarney Stone co-owner Sheryl Coyne was equally excited to have Lick the Plate on Q100 and it's expanded reach. "I've been a big fan of Lick the Plate since we helped launch it in Traverse City three years ago and to have it back on with such expanded reach is exciting for both our listeners and advertisers. Host David Boylan and the show have cultivated a big following throughout Michigan and they give our listeners a fun and informative listening option during their late afternoon commutes and through podcast at www.q100-fm.com . It's a one-of-a-kind feature that combined with it's presence in Southeast Michigan, will now cover almost the entire state."
