"My name is Joe Frank, and I live in Burlington Vermont."

Joe Frank's America is the name of a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series In The Dark. It was originally broadcast in 1994.

Synopsis

Joe calls a long list of men named Joe Frank. Joe talks about having no interest in the show, contemplates leaving radio, and talks about a direction-less man who had been a diplomat for a nation which no longer exists. Joe is on the beach and fantasizes over a man he mistakes for a woman, then he meets a stranger looking for Indian burial grounds. Joe talks about his name against a background of children singing "Me and My Shadow." [Yeah, I know it's not really a call in show; but creating a new category for a call out show seemed excessive.]

Interesting Facts

Joe Frank sings a karaoke version of Me and My Shadow.
