f-n-g-logo-bestFrom the inch to the mile, songwriters can get pretty obsessed with distances (and one more reason for us to cling atavistically to English measures–the metric sort just don’t sing as well). And then there’s one of the major masters of jazz who happens to be named Miles, so you know what Frank will play a bunch of, don’t you. Tune in this week as we bop down your block with an exploration of the near and the far from people like Syd Straw and Lucinda Williams, East River Pipe and The Scene Is Now, Petra Haden and the Red House Painters.

“Frank ‘n’ George” airs Tuesdays 10 am – 12 noon spring quarter.
