As we wrap our Summer Season and take a station vacation, we’re reflecting on two years (!) of Love Bites Radio and the conversations that have stuck with us. We’ve played with taglines — shifting from Where Dining and Dating Collide to Exploring Why and How We Love — and format, and theme. We’ve dated so many people, and gluttunously explored cuisine high and low from coast to coast.
