New Site For The Frank Nora Show

The Frank Nora Show has a new website – show.franknora.com. (It can also be reached via franknorashow.com). And it’s easy to find on the iTunes Store.

Additionally, you can hear it (along with many other great shows) on The Overnightscape Underground – a wild frontier of Internet radio experimentation – enter if you dare!

The Frank Nora Show is a direct continuation of Frank’s previous shows - The Overnightscape (2003-2009) and The Rampler (2008-2009).

With a brand new episode released most weekdays, the show is still going strong and is better than ever – tune in and check it out!

7th Anniversary of The Overnightscape


To celebrate the 7th Anniversary of The Overnightscape, I have launched a new website: FrankNora.com

On this site, you can listen to my entire radio archive in a convenient, web-based player – all of The Overnightscape, The Rampler, The Overnightscape Underground, and a whole lot more! There’s never been an easier way to listen to the archive – which currently stands at 1,865 tracks with 1,618 hours of audio (67.4 days).


I came up with the idea for The Overnightscape on Thursday, March 13, 2003. I was on my way home from work in NYC, riding the PATH train back to NJ. Here’s exactly what I wrote on my Palm Pilot:

3/13/03 6:54 pm

non-meta half-hour talk show, just me

3/13/03 7:03 pm

the overnightscape

I went home, set up my recording system, and started recording the show at around 9:55 PM – less than 3 hours after I wrote down my idea for the show and its name (wow, just think, it could have been called Nightscans…) What I recorded was The Overnightscape Beta #1 – the first of two test shows I did before releasing the first official episode two weeks later.

Hear these and all the rest on FrankNora.com!


After a bit of chaos in the past few years, The Overnightscape has evolved into The Overnightscape Underground – still essentially the same, but with a slightly different configuration.

It’s been 7 years, and the pleasantly insane rambling is still going strong – and getting more insane all the time!!!

Enjoy the archive!

Exit Ramp Forum

Welcome former listeners of The Rampler on WFMU to the Exit Ramp Forum.

The Rampler ends its run on WFMU

Though I was hoping to continue the show, The Rampler was not picked up for the Fall 2009 – Spring 2010 WFMU schedule.

There are two episodes remaining – I’ll do the show this Friday night / Saturday morning (October 3 – my birthday), and next week, October 10.

The reason for the cancellation, as I understand it, is twofold. First, it’s a very competetive schedule – a lot of very talented people want to get on the air on WFMU. Secondly, The Rampler really is on a very different “wavelength” from the other programming on the station, and so has been having a hard time “fitting in”.

I do think that given time, The Rampler may have been able to be a success at WFMU – but I understand it’s very hard to give a show like mine that kind of time, considering how many other shows are clamoring to get on.

So while I am disappointed, I do understand the decision and I think it may be for the best. Can only bash a square peg into a round hole for so long before it becomes tiresome for everyone involved.

I’ll remain on good terms with the station, and I may be back on the air in some capacity in the future.

With this, my sole remaining “radio” outlet will be The Overnightscape Underground (onsug.com) – which I do plan on continuing (and it’s been going great, and is better than the WFMU show anyway).
