On Monday, November 30th, Seth Pettersen, front man for the Ventura indie-rock quintet Franklin for Short, was a special guest on “The Freak Power Ticket,” a music and cultural arts program hosted by DJ Ted Coe.

A few weeks later, on January 11th, Franklin for Short bassist/vocalist Trevor Beld-Jimenez (aka Tall Tales) returned to the same program for the first time since the summer of 2008, for a conversation, DJ set, and live performance.

Pettersen likewise discussed his various musical projects (including an early December solo performance in Isla Vista), spun tracks by fellow musicians from the region, and previewed songs from his forthcoming Seth Pettersen and the Undertow debut on Beehouse Records, “So Fully” (both live in-studio and on CD).

Tall Tales and the Silver Lining’s next release, “Fall In,” is due out in March on Beehouse.

Franklin for Short’s next area gig will be on Friday, January 29th, at Zoey’s in Ventura, before the group embarks on a major eight-city tour in support of the Norwegian folk-pop duo Kings of Convenience. (Edited versions of both broadcasts have been posted below.)
