'Black Coffee' (Patricia Kaas) begins and plays under much of
the first few minutes and often in the rest of the show.
0:30: Joe felt bad, worried about his heart, went to see Dr
Hess (sp?) (the German-ish accent makes me think Tim Jerome, but I'm
not sure). Dr Hess puts his stethoscope on Joe's chest, has a heart
attack himself; an ambulance takes him to the ED. Dr Hess ends up in
the ICU, his nurse under sedation.
2:10: Joe goes home; someone else is there; he disputes Joe's
ownership, slams the door on him.
3:20: A parody Indian guru says death begins as a
misunderstanding, 'explains' further.
4:30: Joe interviews Dick (Arthur Miller) & Jane (Irene
Wagner? Avery Hart?), a couple who make 'Love' movies (don't call it
porn!). They air 3 minutes of their latest, 'The moving instant'; we
hear sounds of passion, a melodramatic Muzak version of 'Moon River'.
8:40: Joe opens the flap of Gindu's (sp?) tent, says he's in
Nirvana, 'the nexus where love meets death'. A guy pounds stakes into
the ground, he hears wild animals. Joe goes to the beach where clowns
do flips. An explosion blows the clowns up.
10: We're back in the 'love' movie: sounds of passion. Dick &
Jane lament they don't have enough time.
11:10: Joe says it seems like an ordinary pornographic film.
They explain why it's better.
12:40: Joe's in the YMCA on East 14th Street. It's 2 AM; Joe
can't sleep: the straw in his mattress needs changing. Joe asks what
our nature is, cites Steinfeld's 'Theory of chaos', page 54. Then a
fellow with a German-ish accent (Tim Jerome?) talks philosophical
13:50: 'Sentimental Walk' (Vladimir Cosma) from the soundtrack
of 'Diva'; Cosma cribbed this music from Satie's 'Trois Gnossiennes'.
14:10: A woman tells about being with her (beautiful) best
friend at the grocery store. A fellow and his wife invite them to
dinner at their house. They end up having an orgy, I think.
18:30: Joe's on the crowded Bosnian express (a train).
Workmen play cards; a drunk at the bar tells everybody that they're
stupid. Arthur Miller is a passenger who buys and sells animals. The
conductor comes in, asking for passports; Joe doesn't have his but the
conductor passes him by. Joe remembers his summers in Bosnia. A
boatman, offering Joe a ride across the river, can't start his boat's
23:40: Joe has a dream: his body has been split down the
middle; a doctor with forceps pulls out pieces of bone and pottery.
24:30: The parody Indian guru is back, talking about how great
Nirvana is (they leave a mint on your pillow!).
25:40: A man (Tim Jerome, his Spanish/French accent) complains
to a woman. He's responsible for burying the clowns, lacks what he
needs to do the job.
26:40: On the beach in Nirvana Joe awaits Dick & Jane, who
have promised him a part in their next movie. Someone left a baby by
the water. Joe says he's been dreaming all his life, that this is the
end of his dream.
27:20: 'The dawn' (DJ Food)

joefrank.com packages 'The end' with 'Pilot' as 'Pilot :: The
End' and notes 'This hour-long show re-aired for The Other Side was
originally produced as two half-hour programs. Part 1 was called The
End; Part 2 was called Pilot.' 'The end' ends with the music that
begins 'Pilot'. Every time I have heard it on the radio 'Pilot' has
