“Positive Dating” Radio Show comes to Blue Grotto on Federal Hill

PROVIDENCE, RI — Beginning Wednesday May 7th from 7-9pm, Patricia Raskin, founder and host of POSITIVE DATING, on 630WPRO will record her weekly program, live, at the Blue Grotto restaurant on Historic Federal Hill in Providence Rhode Island. The show will embark on its new form using live interaction with the audience and local and regional experts in the dating and relationship world.  In addition to watching and participating in the show, attendees will also have the opportunity to mingle with like minded singles in a elegant and comfortable atmosphere. The event is free and will include complimentary appetizers and valet parking. The Blue Grotto, on Atwells Ave., is a RI institution offering a classic Italian dining experience, with a modern interpretation.

“Positive Dating” is Raskin’s third radio program since 2008. In conjunction with Cumulus Broadcasting in Providence, Positive Dating with Patricia Raskin will kick off its seventh month with this exciting new format. Radio listeners can continue to tune in on Saturday nights from 7-9pm on “News Talk 630 and 99-7fm WPRO, the Voice of Rhode Island” to hear the show broadcast in its entirety.

Raskin stated, “I’m excited about bringing the show to a live audience, especially at the Blue Grotto, a premier restaurant on Atwells Ave in the heart of Federal Hill. I think it can be awkward to initiate conversations at singles events, and this format gives singles the opportunity to come to a weekly meet and greet and watch the Positive Dating show live and ask questions live on the air, or submit them in writing.  The interaction is exciting, and gives a common activity for everyone to engage in and talk about”.

Dina D’Alfonso, manager at Blue Grotto, said, “We are thrilled to host this new interactive format to Positive Dating and WPRO. We are delighted to host these weekly get-togethers for people in our comfortable and elegant atmosphere here. In addition to complementary valet parking and appetizers, “Positive Dating” attendees are also invited to stay on after the show for cocktails or dinner. All of us here at Blue Grotto are excited to offer this one of a kind show to Providence, making our historic restaurant not only their weekly spot, but a chosen weekend location for couples, and families, as well. Come relax, enjoy, and let us delight your senses.“

This weekly radio show is completely new to the area, and offers listeners the opportunity to share their stories and hear from recognized experts on topics of interest to those who are single and looking to meet someone. From advice on dating and love, there will be information on topics such as online dating, flirting, intimacy and dating, and how to attract love into your life.

Joe Lembo, Director of Sales Cumulus Media – Providence says, “The dating show is a great concept for all listeners and we believe in Patricia’s ability to bring experts, co-hosts and the audience together to provide a dynamic, entertaining and inspiring program to News Talk 630 and 99-7FM WPRO”.
