Snacky Tunes is back this week as Darin Bresnitz and Greg Bresnitz feature the first west coast food segment with Andrew Steinthal and Chris Stang, founders of The Infatuation. Launching in 2009, The Infatuation sought to bring a fresh voice to the world of restaurant reviewing where the regular, not super foodie people could turn to for honest and delicious opinions. Sharing how they initially met on the set of MTV’s TRL and eventually transitioned from the music industry to the food world, The Infatuation has become a successful app with branches in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Denver and now, Los Angeles. In the second half of the show, Greg welcomes musical guest WALTZ to the studio. Talking about his upcoming release, WALTZ shares details on the recording process and how 1980s aerobics videos ultimately inspired the visual accompaniment to the album. Tune in for great live performances and catch WALTZ at Rough Trade on August 12! This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.
“I think it’s a similar craft almost; people who care about what they eat care about what they listen to.” [8:17]

“That was what we started to think through – the why’s of people going to restaurants – and often it’s a lot more than, ‘I love to eat great food.'”[12:03]
