I’m going to nickname this episode Frank’s earworms because these were the songs that stuck in my head sometimes for weeks after recording a show. They may not be the most popular of the songs I’ve played or even among my favorites all the time, but they had a catchy melody or rhythm that I couldn’t get out of my head. So get ready for an episode with a lot more music and a lot less of me talking with Volume 100: Frank’s Favorites.
