So Cal Restaurant Show, Jet Tila's Radio Show, Broadcasts from Angels

I always wondered why acclaimed Thai chef Jet Tila's Saturday morning SoCal Restaurant Show on KLAA-AM 830 always had so many OC food people, from the Haven guys to Dean Kim of the OC Baking Co. to Tila himself, whose family essentially taught Orange County what Thai cooking was through Royal Thai in Newport Beach. And then a couple of months ago, when Tila invited my chica to appear on his show, I realized why: he records his radiola from Angels Stadium because the Angels own KLAA.
Anyhoo, because Tila is a Weekly pal, and because this is a local show, we're going to start running down every Friday what he's going to have, starting today, because the guest is me!
Okay, I know that's even more self-serving than usual, but Tila has so many damn OC stars that it'd be dumb of us not to promote Tila and our hometown heroes. So tune in here every Friday to know what to tune into on Saturday!
