THE FOOD SHOW – DECEMBER 30, 2021
Written by WGSO Producer on December 30, 2021
Tom Fitzmorris has been covering the food scene in New Orleans for nearly 50 years. Starting out at the Driftwood newspaper at UNO, his first dining column ran in 1972, and it reviewed The Flambeau Room, operated by Peter Sclafani. Tom did nearly 32 years of The Food Show on WSMB amid all the various changes of formats and call letters that followed. In April of 2019 another of Tom’s dreams was realized when Mary Ann joined the show as co-host. A year later the show moved back to AM radio right here on WGSO.
Tom & Mary Ann Fitzmorris host The Food Show, which airs weekdays from 2 p.m.-4 p.m. on WGSO 990 AM and on the Internet at WGSO.com
Today Mary Ann talks with Jack Jalenko, “Champagne Jack” local wine purveyor that recently visited Louie, a restaurant in London owned by local chef, Slade Rushing.
