I'm Huge in Spain! Deep End Dining on The Main Ingredient with Host Kelli Brett on Spain's Hot FM.
The internet is truly amazing. As a blogger, it's really exciting to know that people from virtually anywhere in the world could be reading my stuff. Even as we speak, somebody from Spain might be reading this post. Then, the next thing you know I end up on a Spanish FM radio station talking about rock cod eyeballs and chocolate covered crickets for Halloween.
It's a small world after all.
The Main Ingredient with Kelli Brett is a food show on Spain's Hot FM. Whenever I explain the show to people, the description can get a little confusing. The show is produced in Spain but is not a Spanish language show - it's in English. The host Kelli Brett is a smart and sassy ex-pat from Australia who discusses food in all its glorious forms. Put it all together and you have an Aussie in Spain talking food in English to a Chinese-American guy about odd eats in the US. Not confusing at all. Makes perfect sense, right?
I have been a guest on The Main Ingredient three times via telephone. I normally get the call at 8AM Eddie time which is 5PM Kelli time. At that hour I'm mainlining my first cup of coffee while she's sipping sangria.
Recently I got an mp3 of the frightful Halloween special Kelli and I taped back in October 2006.
Also on that special I recite some of a myspace friend's weird food poem. This horrifying poetry slam is accompanied by scary echo effects on my voice, spooky music and creepy sound effects.
Gracias, my Spanish amigos y amigas!
Hope you enjoy it whoever and wherever you are.
