Episode: Connections: Chris Frantz Interview on his new memoir Remain In Love, Part 2

July 23, 2020 excerpt of Connections on WPKN with Eric Cocks. Part 2 of an informal interview with my good friend Chris Frantz, drummer and founding member of Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, talking about his very entertaining new memoir, Remain In Love, and whatever else popped into our heads. 
We're also joined on Zoom by our good friend Deb Guhl, for an official reunion of The Drummer, The Dude and The Broad. 
The conversation goes in a number of different directions and includes music from Talking Heads and The B-52's, along with stories from the early days and reflections on modern times. 
It's also a low key fundraiser for the station. 
As of the moment, you can still get a signed copy of Remain In Light by donating to WPKN online at wpkn.org or calling during business hours at 203-331-9756. 
Also, Part 1 of my informal live interview with Chris from a few days ago can still be heard in archives. 
Connections with Special Guest Chris Frantz of Talking Heads on his new memoir Remain In Love plus new and vintage music:
