Recorded April 12, 1996 at Café International, San Francisco, California
With Frank Moore, Barb Golden, Corey Nicholl and Med-O.
The first Cherotic All-Star Band jam! Although, this was the second Cherotic All-Star Band performance, it was the FIRST one where Frank did not use pre-recorded songs to sing/play along with.
Up until this point Frank had been singing along with taped songs and having musicians “playing along” with the recorded songs. Barb Golden suggested that he try not using the recorded songs and just singing/jamming along with the musicians. The rest is history!!

In 1997 Frank was contacted by Russell Shuttleworth, a then University of California, Berkeley, graduate student, working on his Master’s Thesis, which was a research study to help understand how men with moderate to severe cerebral palsy experience and interpret their search for intimacy and sexual relationships in the face of significant social and cultural barriers or as Frank called it, "The Sexual Practices of Bay Area Men with Cerebral Palsy"!!! He wanted to interview Frank for this thesis. That interview quickly segued into 12 years of him interviewing Frank about Frank's life. Meanwhile, Frank encouraged Russell to live his dreams which resulted in Russell aka Dr. Gruve, djing a show on our LUVeR internet radio station for years and playing the harmonica in Frank's Cherotic All-Star Band for many years. They did 88 interviews in all, even continuing via Skype when Russell moved to Australia to teach there. Russell is now a Medical Anthropologist PhD and a member of the faculty at Deakin University in Geelong, Victoria Australia. We have the first twelve of these sessions on videotape. We are in the process of transcribing and editing all of the interviews into a book that Frank named "How to Handle an Anthropologist".
Recorded August 25, 2001.
We just discovered this reading of most of Frank's book of poetry, "Chapped Lap" at The Passions' Conductor performance in Brooklyn, NY. See the full performance here: https://vimeo.com/24674961
