Staff Recommends:
Be sure to check out our recommendations for Joe Frank shows to enjoy for the holidays. A special favorite is the 90 minute At the Dark End of the Bar - perfect for New Year’s Eve.

Welcome WDBX in Carbondale, Illinois! Tune in for weekly Joe Frank shows to be set in the coming month.

We are planning to mount a live show in the spring at Cinefamily’s Silent Movie Theater in Los Angeles. Stay tuned.

And, Joe is also working on new material for KCRW’s Unfictional. If you missed any of Joe’s Unfictional shows, you can download each of them here.

Staff Recommends:

Thanksgiving is not complete without a healthy serving of Joe Frank and “Pilgrim.”

The misery of elaborate Thanksgiving dinners; an examination of American Pilgrims. The idea of religious pilgrimage leads to a car trip across America.
