Up This Week...



A special show this week as we look at the life of Jackson C. Frank and his self titled release from 1965. It was to be his first and only release as his deeply troubled youth would evolve into an even more troubled future.
His album is regarded as the most forgotten classics of the last century and it would later go on to inspire the likes of Simon and Garfunkle and Nick Drake. But what happened to him in his childhood that brought out such a beautiful album and indeed what happened to him in later life? Well this Sunday between 9 and 10pm on Phantom 105.2's album archive we're going to tell you his story.
