Frank Murphy is joined by his friend Becca James, the girl with two first names. Frank and Becca will announce the Karns Christmas Parade live on the Karns Network YouTube channel on Saturday, December 2, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. Here’s the link: 
Frank has finished recording the 2024 season of Tennessee Scholars’ Bowl. which will begin airing weekdays at 5:30 p.m. on January 8, 2024 on East Tennessee PBS. One of the students gave Frank a tie with the Scholars’ Bowl logo. 
While looking for vocabulary words, Frank saw that the word whelm means engulf, submerge, or bury. Frank was talking with a married couple at church and they offered to send him some art history questions for Scholars’ Bowl. A few days later, Frank saw the couple at a clothing store and loudly called out, “Where are those art history pictures I was supposed to see?” 
Becca is surprised to hear that Kohl’s has dropped the brands of shirts and jackets that her husband and Frank like to wear. Frank says Kohl’s has broken up with him because he has aged out of their demographic. Frank looked online for Chaps and Van Heusen shirts and saw that he could buy them across the street at JCPenney. 
Becca will participate in Whamageddon during December. To win, you have to avoid hearing Wham’s “Last Christmas.” Frank wants to hear the song everyday because it’s one of his favorites and he likes playing it on the radio. Frank is on FUN 105.9 weekdays from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Listen online at 
When Frank worked on the Kevin & Bean Show at KROQ-FM, the show’s comedy writer was Jimmy Kimmel. When they traveled to do a remote broadcast, Frank and Jimmy would share a hotel room. Jimmy once pranked Frank by bringing a group of people into the room while Frank was sleeping. Frank’s friend Tim Puttre recently dressed as Santa Claus and escorted Mariah Carey into Jimmy’s bedroom to wake him in the middle of the night.
