Fran Fried is the hostess of Franorama 2.0, most Thursdays from 1-4 p.m. Eastern Time on Cygnus Radio. So what’s a genre? I just throw everything against a wall and see what sticks. Rock’n’roll, garage, punk, soul (especially Northern), rockabilly, real country, cheesy goofball stuff — no matter what generation, if it has a heart and soul, it has a home here.
