Frank on American Radio

I haven't been on the forums in a while, but I felt compelled to announce that I heard Frank being played on the radio for the first time which was pretty cool. Any other American fans have more luck with hearing his music on the radio?

Re: Tom Waits?

I find Tom waits a bit of an enigma, which is fine if it's honest but it seems like he's pretending to be an enigma. Not sure if that explains it, but it's a bit like zoey deschanel and her 'I'm a bit cookie/geeky' schtick. I enjoy it but I don't believe it entirely. That said, I'm a massive fan of...

Last.fm/Pandora

A trivial question but have you ever made a Frank Turner station on last.fm or pandora just to see who they compare you to? If I were an artist I think there would be an innate curiosity to find out regardless of how much stock you put into it.

Re: Careers vs Values

Perhaps my language usage belied my intentions. I certainly would do anything illegal on the job. Especially in a military career. What I meant to say was that perhaps I could work in that environment and represent my values through my work. I don't see that as subverting the armed forces.

Re: Careers vs Values

Thanks for the reply. I guess one reason I haven't totally discounted the idea is the thought/fantasy that its possible to be an agent of change within something your disagree with. Possibly supply a healthy form of coercion with the established practices (at least until I get fired).

Careers vs Values

Hello all, I'm graduating in the spring, so naturally the job hunt is in full swing. While weighing my options I have come across opportunities that seem to contradict personal values. More specifically, there are opportunities for work in the intelligence field for the military but I find it diffic...

Re: Invite

I, for one, believe the offer of an open bar should extend to all of Frank's fans. It only seems right.

Re: All new misheard song lyrics

I've had the lyrics to Wessex Boy down for quite some time, but today for some reason I heard "There's something about hotels you never can escape.

Re: FFS, really?!!! Stealing my FT hoodie?

No.
The only Frank gig I've gone to was the FM show at the Fillmore in Charlotte. I didn't know anyone. I wear my hoodie/t-shirts all the time just to see if someone recognizes Frank's merch.

I in the end, I want to know what would be cut in a libertarian government. The EPA? Civil rights legislation? Financial regulations? Where do cuts stop and the role of the government begin?
