PRI

for those interested - tonight i will be guest hosting Fair Game on public radio. it will be nationally syndicated - check here to find out when it will broadcast in your area. Features interviews with artist Hassan Elahi, writer Harvey Pekar, as well as music from the fabulous Rachelle Garnier.


:: update - it seems that "national" might be the wrong term for the syndication, so would "quasi-national" or even "kind-of national" :: the podcast, however, will be made available here following the show.

That explains the Harvey Pekar clip you posted the other day -- assume you're researching? "Fair Game"'s a fun show, although I haven't listened to it in awhile. Good luck tonight -- should be alot of fun, I would hope.

wow -- Fair Game does not air in the first 15 states I looked up. and thats why radio stations podcast.

im sure you'll do well. radio seems like a lot of fun.

I guess they have no way of knowing that they're probably going to get their highest ratings ever.

Very good to hear, Ze! It's odd that they aren't carrying this in San Francisco, but I'll be sure to listen on the podcast. Have fun!

Excellent job, Ze! Though I miss your facial expressions and other tomfoolery (huh?), radio seems to be a great forum for you.

Looking forward to much more!

Good going Ze. That must have been fun. At least it sounded pretty fun. You have a good radio voice. I especially enjoyed the "If spam were helpful" segments. Did you write those?

Anyway, way to go!

PS. I was secretly hoping to hear "This is Ze Frank... thinking so you don't have to" at the end of the show =P

WTF happened to Pekar's voice? He sounds like like Ed Wynn on poppers.

Great show, Ze. I think I have new podcast to add to list. Hope everything is well and I hope you had fun.

Posted by: Jeremy at July 24, 2007 12:11 AM

Great show, Ze. I hope you had fun, and I'd like to thank you for introducing me to another interesting podcast.

Take care.

I hope my last comment didn't go through, darn errors.

Maybe pseudo-national?

I listened, I laughed, I wept openly.

Your Mother must be so proud.

Nice job -- great to hear from you.

Posted by: tsand at July 24, 2007 10:13 AM

I think radio is a great fit for you, Ze. Listened to the show over podcast and hope to hear you do more...maybe even your own show?

Posted by: Jackie at July 24, 2007 11:07 AM

It was fun to hear your voice again! It turns out I'm incapable of hearing it without picturing you, eyes wide open and nostril twitching.

Kind of a different venue than I've heard you do before, but you did a good job of matching the PR style.

Posted by: brightpearl at July 25, 2007 11:16 AM

The above commenter stole my thoughts: it's damn good to hear your voice again. I kept waiting for the show references, but you're a fine radio host in your own right.
