On this episode of "Hot off the Press" Chef Pete records live from the new “Panini Pete’s” location in Destin, where he rounded up a couple of the Lex and Terry Show crew for a little reunion on the Emerald Coast.
Executive Producer of the Lex and Terry Show and host of “Under the Shade Tree” Dee Reed, and former Lex and Terry radio stunt guy Tyler “Taint” Baker sat down with Pete to talk surfing, a little married life, and some of their favorite restaurant recommendations.
A native of Tampa, Florida, Dee Reed moved to Jacksonville in 1994 and began working as a club DJ. Dee performs various duties for the Lex and Terry show, including screening phones, scheduling guests, serving as the proprietor of the Lex and Terry Store, and participating as part of the on-air talent. He most recently hosts “Under the Shade Tree with Dee & Sarah.”
Some of Dee’s favorite DFW eateries? Gloria’s Latin Cuisine which features fine Salvadorian, Tex-Mex and Mexican food in 15 Texas locations including DFW, Houston and Austin, as well as Dough Pizzeria, an authentic Neapolitan-style pizza restaurant, serving delectable, delicious Italian dishes in San Antonio and Dallas.
Tyler “Taint” Baker originally joined the Lex & Terry staff as an intern, but became a full-time employee in April 2007. Baker spent seven years working as a phone screener and radio stunt guy before his departure in 2012 to move to the West Coast. A Florida native, Tyler returned to the Sunshine State and now resides in St. Augustine where enjoys making waves both on the water and on the air as a radio personality.
Tyler’s recommendations? The Floridian in St. Augustine, he says, with its eclectic menu and really great food made from local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients. And also topping the list of his favorites—Pacifica’s Gorilla BBQ from his days living in California.
