"My name is Joe Frank, and I live in Burlington Vermont."
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.]
Joe Frank sings a karaoke version of Me and My Shadow.
- "River of Bass" - Underworld (from "Dirty Epic ", 1994)
- "Me and My Shadow (karaoke)" (from "Karaoke: Happy Songs Are Here Again")
