This week’s theme couldn’t be simpler, couldn’t be more grand: God and the Devil (non-believers, please excuse the capitalizations). True, any given week, any given set, any different side of a segue, you might think either one of us is god or a devil, but that’s not what really what we have in mind. Instead, it’s all those singers obsessed with the heavenly or the damned. That’s all kinds of artists, some singing very literally for their souls, some having fun with a bit of giant metaphor. Listen up to learn who got their teleology in their theology. (Think Iris Dement, Alex Chilton, Tom Waits, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, Frank Sinatra.)
“Frank ‘n’ George” airs Tuesdays 10 am – 12 noon this summer.
