Okay, people think the biggest perk of working in radio is free concert tickets. Or meeting celebrities. Nope…it’s the free food, and lots of it! Seriously. Especially in a town that has so many incredible restaurants. And of all the stations I’ve worked at, I’ve never seen so much complimentary grub as at WTMX. It seems every restaurant in Chicago wants to feed Eric and Kathy - which makes perfect sense since their huge ratings dwarf the competition. And lucky for me, Eric and Kathy are kind enough to share with the rest of the staff so I rarely even need to pack a lunch.
Yesterday I walked into work to find an amazing buffet of gyro’s from Kronos in Swany’s production studio. He wisely moved the food to the kitchen so nobody made a mess near his equipment. As soon as the food hit the table in the kitchen “the vultures” (myself included) descended up the chow. Delicious lamb, incredible tzatziki (creamy cucumber sauce), onions, tomatoes, pita bread and even foil wrappers for each sandwich made.
Hungry? Here’s the best part. These tasty gyros are free for you, too! Mark you calendar for Tuesday, September 1…it’s the premier of “Kronos Free Gyros Day”. Yep. You get a free lunch. Head to www.kronosfreegyros.com to download and print a free coupon. Yum!
