I second that notion. I have thought a lot about recording people/friends gathered around telling each other stories, or just having good conversations in general (hours and hours, over days, weeks, months, years, or whatever) and then editing them (the best parts) to cool music. Not quite like a DJ using small samples to make a song, and not as elaborate as Joe's cast of actors improvising, but somewhere in-between. Oh, and a little more random, abstract, and less formulaic than "This American Life". Maybe there is something there, maybe not. I must admit that is one part of the reason I started "The Los Angeles Joe Frank Collective" as perhaps a vehicle to that end. No hidden mics (btw)! Who knows. Any other ideas out there amongst our fellow frankophilian listites.

  I, for one, am very interested in the process and making my own radio-ready broadcast.

    i was wondering if anyone had an interest in making their own radio-ready broadcasts and have ideas about the process.  such as:
    - writing for radio (i.e. dialogue, monologue, plays, narrative, etc.)
    - techniques (i.e. mixer settings, effects, mic placement, recording your voice, how to speak in a radio-friendly manner, etc.)
    - how to get from an idea to the end product
    i remember reading a joe frank interview where he was talking about the distinctive sound of his voice on his later broadcasts.  apparently it was somewhat accidental and was created by playing back the tape after using a certain kind of noise reduction.  i forget the details.  anyway, thought some of you might be interested in a thread of this nature.
