In the course of one day, a teenager on vacation with his family in the Caribbean, has a series of erotic encounters: with a girl his age, an island prostitute, the mother of his best friend, and a businessman old enough to be his father. Ministers intone inspirational messages in Dial-A-Prayers. Joe’s surreal ramblings lead to a musical celebration of New Year’s Eve. *NOTE: This is the one-hour version. The 90-minute original contains extended music by The Joe Frank Band.
With warm wishes for a safe and peaceful holiday season,
Enjoy this article by Andrew Leland on the New York Review of Books online site. It’s a comprehensive look at Joe’s influence in storytelling on the radio. Includes rare audio and insight.
“Joe Frank’s legacy isn’t in his specific approach to storytelling, or his aesthetic, or even his use of music. It’s in his approach to radio itself, the sense of radio not as a medium of mass communication, a place for traffic reports and newscasts, but rather as a site for artistic expression as fertile as the canvas or page.”
Independence Day Sale:
Starting this Saturday, June 30th, we are giving you a 10% discount off everything in the shop. Sale ends on Sunday July 8th.
5% Discount on New Memberships:

And, while they last:
We have a lot of Joe Frank Selections CDs that were mislabeled (Vol 1 for Vol 2, etc.). There’s nothing wrong with the CD, just the label. So for every tangible order (CDs, Collections, Thumb Drives, photographs), we are including one FREE mislabeled Joe Frank Selections CD until they are gone.
As always, thanks for your support.
A note from Joe’s wife:
Joe greenlighted several projects over the past five years. But there was little time to dedicate to making them happen. Your continued support ensures that these projects move forward. (Not to mention helping to pay medical bills.) Thank you for your patience as I make my way through this to-do list.
Despite how public Joe allowed his medical journey to be, many times over the past 14 years, he faced medical interventions and hospitalizations that no one except the two of us knew about. He was the strongest and most courageous person I’ve ever known. And I miss him more than I ever imagined possible.
Planning is currently underway for a public event in Celebration of Joe’s Life. We will let you know details as they are available.
–Joe Frank Memorial
There will be a gathering to celebrate Joe’s life. To date, no concrete plans have been made. Stay tuned.

It has been a week, as most of you know by now, that my love, my soulmate, Joe Frank, passed on. He worked so hard to keep going. During the past three months, no setback was met without his great and willing effort to surmount in order to stay with us. He endured unimaginable pain, and yet never complained.

It is with the deepest sadness to let you know that Joe left us Monday
morning, January 15, 2018.
He passed peacefully in his sleep after a long struggle with setbacks
following colon cancer surgery in October.
A memorial service will be held; however, please be patient. Joe and I
discussed at length what his wishes were when this day would sadly
arrive. Though he was born Jewish, he didn’t feel confined by rules of any kind
and left it for me to manage the timing.
I have set up a Facebook page:
where you can find more information and post your tribute.
Thank you, sincerely,
Yesterday was another turning point. And it was a welcome one! When I arrived in the morning Joe was at last himself mentally. Also yesterday, he began to eat and drink fluids again. What a relief. (Although he still is on antibiotics to fight the UTI.)
