Small Bites Radio production update and return to air date

Small Bites Radio production update and return to air date

Hello again friend of Small Bites Radio,

All I can say is WOW. What a wild and crazy time this year has been. I know nothing is anywhere close to the same as it was before or where we want it to be in any manner, but my only hope is that you, your family, and friends are all healthy and safe.

You are probably asking yourself what could we have to say that you would want to know about? The answer is that Donato and I have decided to give this rinky dink program and distraction from life for an hour every other Sunday a try again provided positive trends continue in our area. Our anticipated return to broadcast is currently Sunday, August 9th with just the crew appearing giving updates on that episode.

After August 9th feel free to send us any guest or segment idea suggestions our way at smallbitesradio@gmail.com and we’ll schedule accordingly. Please be aware the biggest change regarding the program is that we will NOT have any in-studio guests until further notice. All appearances and segments will be prerecorded or live call-in. Only Donato and I will be in-studio. This isn’t our preferred method but is in the best interest of safety. Hopefully this rule will be able to change sooner rather than later.

If you are interested in sending a request to schedule something, PLEASE send it in a email to smallbitesradio@gmail.com and DO NOT reply to this post or send to our social media accounts otherwise it will probably get lost in the shuffle and threads. People have been asking daily to book segments so please be patient with any correspondence to us or delays in our response.

We were lucky enough to be named one of the best Hospitality shows on the planet for 2020 the exact year that the entire hospitality industry has hit rock bottom and has more uncertainty than ever. With that in mind we are aiming to be named 2021’s Top Thing that others wish would have disappeared along with the pandemic. I have a good feeling we can accomplish this with our usual style of lazy interviewing and low budget production. Fingers Crossed 😉

Thank you and looking forward to working and talking with everyone again soon. If you have any questions or need anything else just us know!

Small Bites Radio #Coronavirus #COVID-19 Status

Small Bites Radio #Coronavirus #COVID-19 Status

Unfortunately due to the continued crisis regarding Coronavirus COVID-19 and the safety of our guests, talent, and studio staff being of utmost importance, all recordings of Small Bites Radio are currently cancelled. As of now ALL bookings are canceled until further notice. If you have an appearance scheduled for a later date, we will be determining the viability of that show occurring closer to the date and reach out to the person who booked the segment or slot appearance personally if and when that show will occur. Unless you are contacted by us DO NOT visit the studio or reach out to any team member of Small Bites Radio or staff personnel of Wildfire Radio. No segments are being taped remotely for any call-in guests either. ALL production has ceased and is suspended.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you or your clients. This is unprecedented territory with a lot of uncertainty currently. With this in mind and no end in sight on the horizon our policy has changed and we are NOT rescheduling any appearances any longer for shows cancelled. ALL appearances that were to happen have been FULLY CANCELLED. Also our schedule has been frozen and we are NOT accepting any new bookings no matter how far out the date requested until the situation is deemed by local, state, and federal officials that the outbreak has been fully contained.

In keeping a somber tone we have halted all official social media posts coming from Small Bites Radio on all platforms in respect to lives lost and life as we know it changing drastically every day. Any social media activity from any member of Small Bites is unsanctioned currently and they are their personal views and opinions. This is in regard to any format that any message may be published as well as all writing or points of view are personal and they belong to the author of the particular piece. Nothing in any manner is an authentic representation of what Small Bites Radio stands for nor are any messages, posts, videos, audio, etc. endorsed in any manner.

Now is not the time for promotion of any kind. Any distraction from defeating the virus is counterproductive in our belief. For the safety of yourself and others around we beg of you to be sure to share only information from reliable sources regarding this crisis. Together we can get through this.

Hopefully this will resolve itself sooner rather than later, and everyone at Small Bites Radio looks forward to the day we can see everyone again and have you join us to be part of the fun we are known for. Until then please stay safe and healthy and may tomorrow bring a better day.

Be vigilante and informed:
