Put down your newspaper, turn off your computer and listen to the radio

On good days, Mountain Xpress is a good read on both the printed page and the Internet. Today, it’s going to be a good listen.

Matt Mittan, the host of Take a Stand! with Matt Mittan, is on a brief vacation, and he’s put Xpress on the mic today (Monday, Oct. 22) for the entirety of his talk show, which runs from 3 to 6 p.m. on 570 AM.

Our main topic: The “Best of WNC,” as derived from our annual reader survey, which is on the stands this week. We’ll talk to long-time winners, Xpress’ team of analysts and whoever wants to call in.

If that’s not enough reason to flip the switch on your radio, there’s more: We’ve scheduled an exclusive interview with Jake Frankel — the mystery man dubbed “best local sex symbol” in the survey.

    I’m picturing a call-in show called, “This Is Why You’re Stupid”. That’s radio gold right there.

    hmmmm…a radio show with Jason Bugg. Maybe that’s something “The Mountain” should look into doing.
