"Wall Street Booms!"? Well, that is evidently not today's paper.

just a pinch between your cheek and gums, Irwin! Ha!

Yes. Homer and Marge were cast members on the T.U. Show.

'crudely drawn filler material', as actor Troy McClure said.

Is the stream skipping or is it just me?

She really makes these Moby Grape songs sparkle; I love this.

OK, closed and restarted the player and now we're fine
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 3:29pm Jeff:

I heard somewhere that Ms. Ullman gets really cranky when people bring up The Simpsons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 3:32pm Tyler:

"I Can't Believe It's the Best Day of My Life" is the best song I've heard all day! Thanks Irwin
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 3:33pm Guido from Cologne:

Uuuh ... I need this !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 3:37pm Mike East:

I like that Tame Impala chap. I wonder if he'll burn out or fade away. which is the good one again?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 3:39pm Irwin:

Tame Impala used to be in the band Macwood Fleet.

Goat rocks out as a Goat normally does in real life i hear.......Time for Irwin to speak up......Yo!!!****
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 3:52pm doctorjazz:

Just have to say, as a FOW lover, just love this track!
  Wed. 7/8/15 3:53pm P-90:

Good to hear your voice and this show, Irwin, i'm into my second week laid up after leg surgery, alone in the apt, everyone I know out of town, FMU has been an inavaluable companion. And it's a Joe Frank Day too!

@Jeff: I wonder if that's true about Tracey Ullman re: Simpsons. Curious to know what that's about exactly...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 3:55pm Irwin:

P-90: Sorry to hear of your impairment. What's the prognosis?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 3:56pm Jeff:

If true, the potential reason seems clear: she was the headliner of a funny comedy/variety show; there was a bizarre interstitial cartoon; now practically nobody remembers her show, but they always want to talk about the freakin' Simpsons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 3:56pm Mike East:

@P90- I would guess its because she didn't really have much if anything to do with the production of the cartoon shorts, and would prefer to talk about things that she has done herself. That's a total guess though. you'd have to ask her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 3:56pm Mike East:

you should definitely bring it up if you ever run into her.
  Wed. 7/8/15 3:57pm P-90:

I'll be gradually getting up and strarting to walk a little over the next few weeks, nothing permanent (I think!), thanks for asking.
  Wed. 7/8/15 4:00pm P-90:

@Jeff and Mike: well those are the obvious guesses; I wonder if she's ever been more specific about this herself?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 4:03pm chris:

i would buy Jeff's explanation... i, for one, remember the Tracy Ullman show, and i was delighted to hear her here (after so many years)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 4:06pm chris:

glad to hear you are on the (albeit slow) mend, P-90
Avatar Wed. 7/8/15 4:11pm glenn:

he's operating at p-55 levels.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 4:18pm Alison Porchnik:

sounds like Hoboken in 1956
  Wed. 7/8/15 4:26pm P-90:

Thanks for the well wishes, all.
When Joe is in his most expansive narrative mode, as here, I sometimes find him strongly reminiscent of William Burroughs or, maybe even more so, the English Science Fiction author JG Ballard. Anyone else get that, or similar?
  Wed. 7/8/15 4:27pm JakeGould:

As much as I like Joe Frank, the sound quality on these latest shows is pretty bad. I seem that works in progress? But otherwise that sounds like an eBay bootleg MP3.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 4:29pm Mike East:

@P90 - I can see the Burroughs connection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 4:29pm Mike East:

er..hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 4:34pm Irwin:

Jake: This one's particularly low-fi. It's an early show and we didn't have a better audio transfer. I'll do more conscientious QC in the future.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 4:38pm Ryab:

Thanks for all the Joe Frank, Irwin. One of the (may) special things about this station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 4:38pm Ryab:

  Wed. 7/8/15 4:39pm Listening Out There:

The current section of Joe Frank sounds like an episode by Gabriel Garcia Marquez...

Is that Sadeness Part 1 in the background?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 4:41pm Ryab:

What's your favorite hour long -byte, Irwin? I really liked Eye In The Sky...and Iceland Pt. 1
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 4:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Enigma? - or as we used to call it @ the CD store - 'Chants & Pants'...
...or could share the stream w/ Burroughs & Ken Nordine & stuff...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 4:44pm Irwin:

Ryab: Too many to choose one. Dozens vie for 1st place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 4:44pm Ryab:

I thought about it for a bit and I think the same is for me. Too many are too good.
  Wed. 7/8/15 5:04pm P-90:

Oh? "A-A-D-D?" Joe's shows have always had great sound, if that one was just from a bad dupe, that explains the conspicuous low-fi quality. Enjoyed the show, though. It's a good example of that "Joe style period".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/8/15 5:16pm Ike:

Ah, I remember the days when AAD, ADD, and DDD were a thing on the back of CDs.

Marco knows how to lay down the disco beat.

The most wicked disco I've heard in the last few years (besides Mr. Murphy's well-known now-defunct outfit) is Publicist, specifically "Hand to Mouth": www.youtube.com...

That's why I've always loved this track, NGH.

  Wed. 7/8/15 5:54pm P-90:

Dunno, but I do know Shania's not married to that Mutt any more. She is ON the market, boys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/8/15 5:55pm chris:

my belt buckles are all too small for Shania's taste, i fear. oh, and i'm married.
Avatar Wed. 7/8/15 5:55pm glenn:

hmmm. and i have relatives in timmins. i'm in like flynn.
  Wed. 7/8/15 5:56pm judy:

Oh mary mc and jim ringer.
Still sound great
  Wed. 7/8/15 5:58pm Listening Out There:

Gotta go. Heading out for a trim...
  Wed. 7/8/15 5:58pm P-90:

I've just been reminded: Shania has remarried, to the ex-husband of the woman who broke up her marriage. There's gotta be lyrics for at least ONE country song there...
