The proprietor of two of the most popular bars in Salt Lake (Bar X and Beer Bar), actor and star of "Modern Family", Ty Burrell, loves Salt Lake so much that he wrote us a nice little love letter. As picked up by the Trib via the Huffington Posts "Love Letter" section, Ty wrote about Salt Lake:

So Salt Lake, don't ever sell yourself short again. Get some hair product and an expensive shirt from Nordstrom Rack because we have a date with a star.
Another day, another list of Utah and our quirky characteristics. This time it's a list of the emotional and social scars growing up in Salt Lake has left you with. I suspect that even if you grew up here, but aren't from here you've been indoctrinated into fry sauce, dipping your fries in ice cream or that Utah accent.
It's not really your fault. It's your parents fault so blame them for everything, decide you were wrong, own your problems and read this list of the "12 Signs You Grew Up In Salt Lake" from the people over at Newscastic.

"The 'Radio From Hell' morning show is a healing salve for commuters, and the “Boners of the Day” segment features people who make you feel like a genius."
Fact is, no one would know who the hell we were if it weren't for those who listen and support the station, RFH and the music.
Check out the full list here.
