NERDY SHOW & NERDAPALOOZA – BEST OF ORLANDO!
In 2009 Nerdy Show was rated the #3 best radio show in Orlando, by the Orlando Weekly‘s annual Best of Orlando List. The list is compiled by online voting and the final list represents the most significant honor that an Orlando institution can achieve. Being honored in 2009 was a major deal for us, but in 2010, no dice. Voting for the 2011 poll started back in May and we asked you to help us out by voting for Nerdy Show, Nerdapalooza, and many other fine, local Orlando establishments.
We’re proud to announce that all your votes have paid off and we’ve once again placed in the Orlando Weekly 2011 polls!
