I hadn't heard anything about him in years. Glad he's done this (and I hope he's okay!)

Oh man, I used to LOVE hearing Joe Frank on radio back in NY in the 90s. Thanks so much for posting!

Joe Frank is the anti-cliche. He takes themes that could easily descend into two-bit dorm-room philosophizing and makes them his own. No prologue, no wasted words or exposition: you are immediately inside his world within seconds. Everything is pitch-perfect: the phrasing, the cadence, the music loops. This is up there with "Decline of Spengler" and "Road to Hell." Thanks.
