Frank & Friends Show

The Frank & Friends Show gives you a chance to hear Frank Murphy’s unusual perspective on life. Over the years, radio listeners in Knoxville, Los Angeles, and Washington would hear Frank talk about his family, his frugality, and his fig trees. He and his friends will also talk about comedy improv, travel, food, and other things that make Frank so Frank. Expect to occasionally hear from guests with interesting stories to add about radio, improv, and East Tennessee. The show is available on YouTube and your favorite podcast app. Learn more at https://www.frankandfriendsshow.com/
