Award Winning Voice Actor Pete Gustin Joins Lick the Plate Host David Boylan to Talk Food, Music and Overcoming Blindness to Become the Voice of Movie Trailers, TV Commercials and More

ENCINITAS, Calif., May 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Lick the Plate the original culinary, culture and music feature in Detroit, Northern Michigan and San Diego is joined this week by Pete Gustin, one of the most recognizable voice actors in the business. Lick the Plate host David Boylan was connected with Pete through Brooks Venters, an editor for Lick the Plate and also a documentary filmmaker. He also recently produced “Finding a Way – The Story of the Blind Surfer” that tells the story of Pete Gustin and his quest to learn to surf while being legally blind.

Besides being a huge fan of Pete’s voice, Boylan was blown away by Pete’s perseverance and initiative to tackle a sport that is difficult enough for people with full vision. “Having been on the radio for 10 years now with Lick the Plate, I’ve met some amazing voice talent on the various stations where the show has aired. As a fan of great voices, now to be joined by one of the best…that award winning voice that is so recognizable, it was a big thrill for me. Talking one on one with Pete Gustin, especially in those Bose headphones, was a bit surreal. And to learn how he has accomplished so much while being legally blind was definitely inspirational.”

For Pete Gustin, who can be heard regularly on movie trailers and daily on TV and radio stations all over the country, Lick the Plate provided a unique challenge and opportunity. Telling his story through the five, two-minute segments format was new to him, but a good opportunity to present himself in short form content. “First off I was drawn to the unique angle Lick the Plate takes by having their guests tell their stories through food and music experiences. Thinking back to some memorable concerts and meals was fun. The way David paces the show and his conversational manner of conducting an interview made it easy…though I did have to be tapped on the shoulder several times by Brooks – which was our wrap it up signal. It was definitely a fun experience and different from most conventional interviews.”

Lick the Plate on 101.5 KGB and The Mightier 1090 in San Diego airs Monday – Friday at 7:15 and 9:15pm. In northern Michigan/Traverse City Monday-Friday on 106.3 WQON it airs at 6:15 and 9:15pm. All the shows can be heard in podcast format at
