Quite often, a KROQ sponsor will call us and request that we write about their sales initiative or ad campaign. Luckily, we have the freedom to say no, so they rarely hit KROQ.com. But when we heard about Farmer John’s campaign to make the bacon wrapped hot dog the official hot dog of Los Angeles, we asked them if we could help promote it. We’re behind this campaign 100%.
You probably don’t know this but for the past five or six years, a few nutballs from KROQ have gotten together after Weenie Roast and Acoustic Christmas to barbecue bacon wrapped dogs in their hotel room. Yeah, the room smells gnarly the next morning but it doesn’t matter. The deliciously good dogs are worth it every time. And, yes, they use the trusty ‘ol George Foreman grille, although the first year I believe they actually tried a coals. It didn’t work out too well.
So, now you know why we’re on board. But to make this a reality, we need your help.
Place your vote now.
And, here’s the feel-good part… For every vote cast in support of the Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog, Farmer John will donate one pound of food to local food banks including Union Rescue Mission Food Bank in Downtown LA.
