GGR Pirate Radio

GGR Pirate Radio really exemplifies the "pirate radio" mantra. We talk movies, video games, relationships, comics, TV, sports, music and everything else under the sun. The only format: there is no format. All are welcome to talk about the thinks they “geek out” over as long as you follow the only rule: “don’t be a juicebag.”

Geek of the Week - Erik Meyer of Gourmeltz

With the relaunch of GGR comes a renewed focus on people who are doing awesome things they are passionate about. Whether it's music, art, writing, podcasting, or any other pursuit, those who are "geeky" about the things they love are welcome here, and once a month we will have a "Geek of the Week" who gets our focus. Now, I know what you're thinking: why is it "Geek of the Week" when they get a whole month? Because geek doesn't rhyme with month. Duh. 

Our fourth "Geek of the Week" is professional chef and general manager of Gourmeltz and long-time friend of GGR, Erik Meyer. Mike and Erik discuss the history of the Gourmeltz, how he got into cooking and why he loves working for owner Matt Strickland. They also discuss Erik’s love of Pittsburgh sports, his dogs, video games and how he’s recruited friends and significant others to join his Gourmeltz team.

Recorded at Gourmeltz in Massaponax, Virginia on October 21st, 2018.
