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...

Does 'FMU have any archive episodes of Joe Frank??????? For possible listening?????

Joe Frank does, Lemook.

@LeMook: Joe Frank's website or hunt around Irwin's archives. It's a veritable Joe Frank treasure trove.

KPFA plays joe Frank every Sunday evening. No one archives them. They're for sale though

Cool! Thanks all!!!

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.

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    Wed. 5/3/17 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.
  Wed. 5/3/17 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!!
  Wed. 5/3/17 4:46pm @courtney:

must b tons of it on YouTube? blogs? internet this, internet that? spotify?
  Wed. 5/3/17 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
  Wed. 5/3/17 4:49pm miles:

I seem to remember his voice being smoother & as he aged it got more weathered & raspy. more character...side note
  Wed. 5/3/17 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
  Wed. 5/3/17 4:49pm Courtney of Morris:

And I'm old
  Wed. 5/3/17 4:51pm miles:

whoops...I'm @cCourtney...& old too
  Wed. 5/3/17 4:54pm miles:

he just has so much stuff that I wouldn't limit myself to a single CD
  Wed. 5/3/17 4:55pm miles:

oh. yeah. buy his stuff...Idk..
  Wed. 5/3/17 4:57pm Marc15:
