I yam a Joe Frank lover.

Is anyone else out there in Man-Man-Land a fan of the radio work of Joe Frank?<P>I got turned on to Mr. Frank through the auspices of Dr. Crispy Knight, an infrequent poster to these boards, about six months ago, and he is now my audio messiah.

I wish they'd bring back radio serials. Or pulp comics. Those were good. Especially the Shadow.

Or insane, lunatic rantings. Gone are the days when you could turn on the radio at 3 am and hear William S. Burroughs. "Dead City Radio" kicks ass, even if you don't really like "Naked Lunch".<P>Damn it, I have to start a pirate radio station some day.<p>[This message has been edited by theangryQ (edited 11-04-2001).]

I only hope that the thousands of hours of early radio serials don't completely disappear the way so many early films have. Thankfully, the wonder of the Internet has allowed collectors and enjoyers of such entertainment to garner much wider access to material (that is, until the RIAA sends their thugs and goons in to quash the swapping of old radio shows).<P>I've only got to collecting a few, but the best I've heard so faris an adaptation of Ray Bradbury's 'Zero Hour'. Very creepy.<P>Crispy

Maybe we should do a man-man audio serial...
More shallow than the Shadow...
More spacey than George and Gracie...
I know that sucks, but I be gramatically challenged...
