As you might have guessed from the headline, this week’s theme is history. Think of the show as a nightmare from which you will be trying to awake, not that you shouldn’t be awake by 10 am on a Tuesday. Even in a college town, that’s just too lazy, people. In the meantime, tune in and learn something by accident–maybe about the St. Francis Dam disaster (Frank Black will narrate), or about Egypt (from both Richard Thompson and a one-time wild and crazy guy), or about how to take over the world (with Pinky and the Brain). And then there’s Stan Freberg, Johnny Cash, Kenny Barron, Neutral Milk Hotel. We know about history–we’re old!
“Frank ‘n’ George” airs Tuesdays from 10 am – 12 noon this winter.
