Episode 0133 - The Mitch Is Back

52 minutes | Thursday, March 28, 2024

Frank Murphy is joined by his friend Mitch Moore, who is a freelance writer. Mitch watched his previous episode and wanted to make some adjustments. Mitch thinks that Frank & Friends sounds like Frankenfriends. 
Mitch asks Frank about the process of writing questions for Tennessee Scholars’ Bowl. Frank and his wife have been reorganizing and rewriting many of the questions in the show’s database. 
This episode is sponsored by (don’t forget the S). Buy books and other merchandise autographed by Body Farm founder Dr. Bill Bass at including Body Farm t-shirts. Contact BoneZones to hire Frank to give a presentation about Dr. Bass and the Body Farm. 
When Frank occasionally gets a song stuck in his head, it’s often the Schaefer Beer jingle that he heard on New York Mets broadcasts as a child. His grandmother gave him a Ballantine beer clock for his bedroom. 
Mitch doesn’t like lemons in his water. Frank might use the lemon to clean his fingers at the table. He wishes restaurants offered finger bowls and hot towels. 
Mitch thinks the cups for water at fast food restaurants are too small especially compared to the huge cups for soda. Frank has learned to let the water run so that it doesn’t have the tint of fruit punch or lemonade. Frank thinks restaurants that serve spicy food should also serve milk. 
Frank is pictured in the March issue of VIP Knoxville. The magazine covered Marble City Opera’s fundraiser that Frank emceed. On April 13, Frank and Heather Waliga will emcee the Casino Royale fundraiser for InterFaith Health Center. On April 19, Frank will emcee the East Tennessee Writers Hall of Fame Awards Gala, which is a fundraiser for Friends of Literacy. 
Frank posts his “selfies for the wardrobe department” on Facebook each day that a new episode of Scholars’ Bowl airs. One of Frank’s friends asked why anyone would care what Frank is wearing on television.
