Kitty Kinnin returns to the airwaves with a new food and music show

Longtime local radio deejay Kitty Kinnin returns to the airwaves this weekend with a new show focused on food and music – Kinnin’s two favorite subjects.

Kinnin was let go from Raleigh’s WRDU, known as 100.7 The River, earlier this year as the morning deejay. She would often interview me on Tuesday mornings about what was to be published in the food section and what food events were on the horizon in the Triangle. On Sunday mornings, Kinnin produced a show called “Sunday Brunch” where she would interview local and national chefs while serving up an eclectic mix of music.

At 10 a.m. Sunday, Kinnin will launch a two-hour show called “Sound Palate” for WUIN, known as 98.3 The Penguin, in Wilmington. The show will follow a similar format as her Sunday brunch show, but Kinnin will ask chefs to pair a signature dish with a piece of music. It will be available via live streaming and as a downloadable podcast. Info:

Kinnin added that the show is a work in progress and she would love to hear suggestions and comments from listeners via the website.
