Citizen Radio welcomes special guest Frankie T (of the infamous “Frankie T and The Bean Show” from WRJR The Ranger. Frankie inadvertently stumbled into Citizen Radio’s studio; Allison and Jamie try to make the best of a weird situation.
First up, Frankie offers his two cents while Allison and Jamie answer Listener Mail, including questions about religion and drugs.
Next, Allison and Jamie talk with DC Pierson (http://www.dcpierson.com/), author of the excellent book, The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep And Never Had To (http://www.amazon.com/Couldnt-Sleep-Never-Vintage-Contemporaries/dp/0307474615).
DC is a member of Derrick Comedy (http://www.derrickcomedy.com/) and can be seen in the film Mystery Team, which is now available for pre-order on DVD (http://www.amazon.com/Mystery-Team-Donald-Glover/dp/B0035LCV12/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1264465276&sr=8-1).
The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep And Never Had To is an amazing book – hilarious, wildly creative, and refreshingly honest. It perfectly (and sweetly) captures the frightening vulnerability of youth. Also, there are mutant creatures from other galaxies. Did we mention it’s awesome?
DC joins the show to talk about adolescence, writing, the challenges of writing a book, and sacrificing everything (including stability) for art.
