@Brian: That was "Song for My Father", right? I picked up a digital cop of "In Pursuit of the 27th Man". Cool, but different than I expected.
Avatar 3:28pm βrian:

@PRB: Yes, that's the one.
Avatar 3:30pm βrian:

I will survice this Karo syrup interlude, I will.
  3:32pm GG:

Oh no, this is terrible....like taco pizza
Avatar 3:38pm Listening Out There:

The Kait Dunton sounds similar to The Bad Plus. Have read that Bad Plus will be looking for a new pianist. Could be a job for Kait...

Contains new content, new music, differently told.
  4:30pm Courtney of Morris:

I live for joe frank Wednesdays
  4:34pm LeMook:

Does 'FMU have any archive episodes of Joe Frank??????? For possible listening?????
Avatar 4:39pm Fredericks:

Joe Frank does, Lemook.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Passaic River Blues:

@LeMook: Joe Frank's website or hunt around Irwin's archives. It's a veritable Joe Frank treasure trove.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Irwin:

  4:40pm David K:

KPFA plays joe Frank every Sunday evening. No one archives them. They're for sale though
  4:41pm LeMook:

Cool! Thanks all!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Irwin:

The audio for Joe Frank episodes remains in my program archives, but the playlist entries are removed at the request of Joe and his wife. Buy his shows. He needs money for medical bills.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Irwin:

  4:44pm Courtney of Morris:

I wouldn't even know where to start w buying a joe frank cd, can you recommend where to start?? Obviously the website but do u suggest a particular volume??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Irwin:

Buy the episodes which only feature Joe Frank, rather than actors and his friends. Those tend to be the strongest. The Work in Progress series is almost all prime Joe.
  4:46pm LeMook:

@Irwin. I know of his health issues, as I follow him on the Facebook. I DO want purchase his episodes however they are pricey! If I was rich I would buy them all!!
  4:46pm @courtney:

must b tons of it on YouTube? blogs? internet this, internet that? spotify?
  4:48pm Courtney of Morris:

Thank u Irwin I'd like to have at least one cd in my possession to turn on other people who need to be in the know...I try to have random people tune on your show but I always get the Wednesdays mixed up
  4:49pm miles:

I seem to remember his voice being smoother & as he aged it got more weathered & raspy. more character...side note
  4:49pm Courtney of Morris:

Also @courtney I know " the internet" has it but Irwin speaks truth I knew he'd have a good suggestion
  4:49pm Courtney of Morris:

And I'm old
  4:51pm miles:

whoops...I'm @cCourtney...& old too
  4:54pm miles:

he just has so much stuff that I wouldn't limit myself to a single CD
  4:55pm miles:

oh. yeah. buy his stuff...Idk..
  4:57pm Marc15:

Who knew that a "Fellatio Section of a beach" is a thing?
  4:58pm Courtney of Morris:

Thank you miles. Thank u Irwin
Avatar 4:58pm βrian:

Smoking or non-smoking?

  5:13pm Marie:

Avatar 5:13pm northguineahills:

You need a profile to star a track/playlist/dj/etc
  5:15pm miles:

@ Irwin- oh, I was joking. No star on the app
  5:16pm miles:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm rrg:
