After over 90 years of fighting static, low power at night, and other problems, the Food Show has moved to the latest radio technology. It’s called HD, and it replaces my long-running AM radio program with a powerful new signal and sound quality sharper. Than FM or even CDs.

But there is a problem. In order to avail yourself of HD radio, you need one of the following:

The Food Show–now in its 28th year–doesn’t want to lose any listeners. Unfortunately, some people will have to shuffle their audio equipment to make sure that they don’t miss anything. And even if they do, they can listen to ever second of the Food Show by downloading the podcats. It’s available for every show, every day, for weeks after it first aired.

I especially invite you to call in to our show from 3-7 p.m. weekdays. The phone number is the same as before: 504-260-6368.

Thanks for listening. I know you’ll enjoy the new Food Show on 105.3 FM, HD2, WWL FM.

Tastefully yours,
Tom Fitzmorris

    Dear Tom,

    I can hear your program on my computer but am broken hearted that I cannot listen on my headphones while I work out at the West Jefferson Hospital. That is usually where I am when listening to your program.

    I have searched the internet for earphones that would work on AM and HD2. If you find where they could be purchased please let me know on my email.

    I’m hoping this technology will develop to make it more user friendly for people like me.

    Most sincerely,
    Kathy Gamble

    Tom, thank you so much! We live in Thibodaux and for the first time I can now listen to a very clear broadcast. In the past it was hit or miss (usually miss). Looking forward to many years of having yu as company as I drive around the bayou country.

    I have heard many reports that bog-box stores like Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Target and other such either have them or will get one for you quickly.
    Thanks for caring.
    Tastefully yours,

    Is there any place in the New Orleans area to get a HD2 radio?

    My husband loves to listen to Tom Fitzmorris while in his car. How can he stream the show live on his iPhone?

    Download a smart-phone app called TuneIn. (Basic version is free, but the better Pro version is only a dollar.) You can control hundreds of radio stations through Tune In, including my station. From there, you can send the food show into your car’s sound system, with a cable or Bluetooth. If you can’t figure it out, get in touch with a 15-year-old nephew or son or daughter, and they’ll do it for you.

    They make lunch tongue at Jeanfreau supermarket on parish Rd in Chalmette. However,it is made from Pork tongue rather than the traditional beef tongue. Remarkably,it tastes the same

    Just a note from Tulsa to let you know how I listen to your show. I have an Amazon Echo and I simply tell it: “Alexia, play WWL HD2 Radio” She uses Tune-In and begins playing your show.

    So much easier than all the computer links and downloads.

    Gulfport- Corn and Crawfish Bisque is outstanding at the White Cap Seafood Restaurant,
    560 Beach Dr, Gulfport, MS 39507

    Also, the best Fried Pickles are at Lil Ray’s in Gulfport. 500 Courthouse Rd, Gulfport, MS 39507
    very nice Shrimp Po-Boys too!

    Glad to read you are recommending the TuneIn app for listening on smart phone or tablets. I tried the WWL app, but it is unstable and ALWAYS disconnects from the audio stream when the phone screen blanks. Checking online with Google Play (android version), this appears to be a common problem with the WWL app. Needs work.

    On the other hand, the TuneIn app works every time! Get it!
