The Day Long Frank Prattle Interview-a-thon!

8 hours of interviews! 35 different guests! Live radio broadcast!

This was probably one of the funnest days of my entire life. People whirling around, radio transmissions (on the lovely Neighborhood Public Radio, 88.9fm), heavy conversations, light chit-chat, madness on all fronts. Take a gander below….
