Frank & Friends Show

Episode 0117 - Knoxtober

35 minutes | Tuesday, October 17, 2023

Frank Murphy is joined by his friend Kathryn Frady of Marble City Opera, who suggests that we are now in the month of Knoxtober. Kathryn says she would wear a Frank & Friends fascinator if such a product existed. 
The nice family across the street from Frank’s house made scarecrow versions of themselves and put them in the front yard. Frank bought a Knox County School Coupon Book from one of the kids. Kathryn had random solicitors in Baton Rouge selling security systems. 
Kathryn puts the school coupons she’s most likely to use in her wallet right away. Kathryn suggests Frank could use a coupon to get a free kids meal because he’s on Richard Jeni’s “Joey Falco Diet Plan.” 
Kathryn’s smoke alarm started beeping at 5:30 a.m. She removed the battery but it kept beeping because it was also connected by wires. She was surprised to discover that other people were awake at that time. She felt like a tourist but Frank thought she said Taurus. 
Frank and his wife Jere sat behind a woman named Ruth at a concert by the Amadeus Chamber Ensemble at the Cathedral of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. After making small talk about Northern Virginia before the show, Frank noticed Ruth was writing herself a note that recapped their conversation.
