He kicks off the show with "Nights" off his blonde LP and covers a wide away of artists for the remainder of the episode including Future, Prince, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Aphex Twin and more. Frank also interviews Jay Z throughout the episode about the state of radio today.

"It’s pretty much an advertisement model…these places are not even based on music. Their playlist isn't based on music…It’s not even about the DJ discovering what music is best." — Jay Z

With Jay Z as Frank's first guest on his show, we can only imagine what's to come on blonded RADIO. The entire tracklist for episode one can be seen below. Enjoy!
