Chris Frantz, “The Talking Head”, Debuts on WPKN-FM

My wife and I just listened to a very enjoyable music radio show on WPKN-FM, 89.5 on your FM dial. Chris Frantz, of Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club fame has begun hosting a show on the last Friday of the month from 1-4 p.m. E.S.T.

Chris Frantz’s first radio show was gangbusters, the music he played was so well mixed and totally original. His first studio guests were Mystic Bowie who sings and plays with the Tom Tom Club and Mickey Leigh, brother of the late Joey Ramone, who was there to promote his book, I Slept with Joey Ramone. Chris also received a phone call from his good friend Bucks Burnett, who spoke about his Eight Track Museum Project (very cool). Chris played Bucks Burnett’s new recording Rachel Bazooka. I really liked what Bucks Burnett had to say about packaging music as art and leaving all the rest of the information, UPC code, etc. elsewhere. Music is art, art is music!

We encourage you to tune in to future shows. Chris Frantz presents novel music with great, hypnotic beats. He is very knowledgeable in his craft.

The stream rewind can be heard right here. Give this show a listen, you’ll love what you hear!
