Bay Area radio station KCBS (106.9 FM and 740 AM) does a fairly decent job of covering some interesting local food stories. They interviewed Soleil Ho for about 3 minutes when the Chronicle 100 Best came out and a few weeks ago had Janelle Bitker, also of the Chronicle, talk about a dust-up at Swan’s Market in Old Oakland.
Last weekend they aired their long-form series In Depth for a 28-minute piece about the growth of meat alternatives, whether they can be widely accepted and possible effects on the environment. The show consisted of interviews with 3 experts, some background music and narration by Keith Menconi who, according to his bio, is a Cal graduate, anchored news in Taipei and is fluent in Mandarin.
Here’s the audio of the piece that aired twice each on Saturday and Sunday
