Joe Frank

Homepage

Description

Long-time favorites with public radio audiences, Joe Frank's programs are sometimes dark, sometimes absurdist, sometimes solo recitations, sometimes ensemble pieces performed and/or improvised by actors, sometimes voices of real people heard in real situations - whether man-in-the-street interviews or phone conversations with lovers or strangers.

All or just one of these within the span of a single hour can comprise a Joe Frank show, always presented as multi-layered soundscapes intermixed with hypnotic, rhythmic music. Tackling philosophical or spiritual questions, the programs are real and surreal timeless explorations of life, death, alienation, faith and love.

Joe Frank radio programs have evolved over the years. From 1986 until 2002, Joe produced four Series: “Work in Progress,” “In the Dark,” “Somewhere Out There,” and “The Other Side.” Each of these series are unique; a testament to Joe's dedication to exploring possibilities and not settling for simply “what works” and repeating it.

Even though the shows have evolved over time, one can listen to a program produced 20 years ago, and find it relevant today. This is a delightful surprise for first-time listeners and long-time fans alike.

The website has links to some online archives of his shows. His catalog is available for purchase on this site.
