Upcoming events:

Wednesday, July 26th, 3pm - 6pm: Joe Frank - "At Last"
One-hour dramas by Joe Frank air alternate Wednesday afternoons at 4pm (Eastern) on Irwin's program. On Weds. July 26th, we'll present "At Last" from Joe's "The Other Side" series. In this episode, Larry’s son Zach gets busted at school for pot-smoking, which incites Larry's paranoia about whether he's an abusive parent. Joe gets an intriguing wrong number call, which leads to a troubling encounter with a young woman who begins to stalk him. Debi spends an evening with her drunk girlfriend who wants to have one last fling before getting married.

Wednesday, August 9th, 3pm - 6pm: Tony Ferretti - The "Sabu" Cassette
Tony Ferretti was born in 1939 and raised in Jersey City. Under the name "Sabu," he had a long and successful career in Las Vegas as a celebrity impersonator, specializing in Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Tony Bennett. In 1972, he mailed a lo-fi cassette letter to his childhood buddy DK, who was in a Jersey City hospital. Crooning in Sinatra's style and radiating affection, Ferretti reminisced about growing up with DK in Jersey City and about the characters on Brunswick Street. In the 1990s, unbeknownst to Ferretti, that charming, one-of-a-kind cassette made it onto the WFMU airwaves thanks to DK's nephew, the late WFMU DJ Frank Balesteri (a.k.a. The Vanilla Bean). Now, 45 years after he created this historic artifact as a favor to a beloved friend, Tony Ferretti visits Irwin's program on August 9th to talk about the tape, and to reflect on the former greatness of Jersey City.
