Host Jeff Haber shares conversations with interesting people from all walks of life, using a positive, uplifting and funny approach.
#34 - Bobby Stuckey
As a 13 year old dyslexic student struggling through school, and of course not knowing he was dyslexic, Bobby Stuckey started bussing tables at a Greek restaurant in Phoenix.
His journey continued, with Bobby working his way up from dishwasher to management and taking a path through The Little Nell restaurant in Aspen in 1995, as sommelier then in 2000, onto Thomas Keller’s French Laundry in Napa where Bobby’s team won the James Beard Foundation’s Award for Outstanding Wine Service and where Bobby met his present day business partner, Chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson.
In 2004, Bobby earned his Master Sommelier Diploma. He and his partners opened Frasca in Boulder, CO where Stuckey and his team again won the Beard award for Outstanding Service, later changed to Outstanding Hospitality, at Bobby’s suggestion.
In 2007 Stuckey and Mackinnon-Patterson launched Scarpetta Wines.
Today, the partners own and operate Frasca and Pizzeria Locale in Boulder and Tavernetta and Sunday Vinyl in Denver.
Ok, so who’s hungry..?

Jeff Haber is the consummate talkshow host. After I listened to this one first, I’ve been compelled to listen to all of Jeff’s podcasts and am in the process of doing so. Jeff’s voice is silky smooth, his comments are right on the money, he has an incredible breadth of knowledge and is extremely funny. He is able to take the conversation into often hilarious tangents, then expertly redirect his guest back on target. While previously driving on my long commute to work I could only listen to music to keep me sane, I found that Jeff’s podcasts made the crazy New York traffic far more bearable and made me wanting to hear more. Can’t say enough good things about Jeff’s work and am truly looking forward to his new material.
fun banter, great host
Jeff Haber is a fun host. He’s easygoing and quick-witted. I’ve listened to three of his podcasts so far and enjoyed every minute. The banter between Jeff and his guests can be laugh-out-loud funny in places, while also being informative and insightful.
Entertaining and Funny
With an appreciation of the history and nuances of the show biz industry, current events, and a unique spin on life in 21st century, this podcast is funny, informative and like warm butter; smooth and tasty and goes with anything.
