Krisha has been working full time at a theater in Pigeon Forge. Frank congratulates her on accomplishing the dream of those who have a “day job” and wish to work in the entertainment business full-time.

In addition to acting and stage-managing, Krisha has been learning how to clog dance and how to play the mandolin. Next she will learn to be a stunt diver in the show.

Krisha’s journey of self-discovery reminds Frank of a terrible song called “I’ve Never Been to Me.” Frank’s wife has filled in on some See More Smokies episodes. Frank chose locations that would be too far away for Krisha to attend.

Krisha hasn’t seen any cicadas in Sevier County. Frank thinks his property is the border for the cicadas in his neighborhood. He has cicadas in his yard but there are none across the street.

Frank’s daughter has to sweep the cicadas off her porch to avoid stepping on them. Frank Jr. explained that the 17-year cicadas and the 13-year cicadas are successful because their life cycles are relatively large prime numbers.

Frank saw a David Attenborough video about the mating call of the 17-year cicadas. Attenborough snapped his fingers to imitate the sound of the female cicada and made a male cicada follow the snapping sound.

After today’s show, Frank is headed downtown to host the video stream for Marble City Opera’s production of Tosca. He is very proud of Jere, who is in the opera chorus. In-person tickets are sold out but the online stream can be purchased at https://MarbleCityOpera.com/tickets

Frank was advised to leave the pool pump running all winter. In previous years, a crew would close the pool and turn off the pump. This year, the water was much cleaner when the pool crew removed the cover.

A woman approached Frank at a fundraiser and told him that her husband was the one who broke Frank’s diving board. It happened several years ago when Frank was out of town and the woman’s sister was keeping an eye on the pool for Frank.

Krisha thinks she has worked up the nerve to go on a helicopter flight over the Smokies. Frank and his daughter once went on a daring helicopter flight above Los Angeles with a radio traffic reporter.

The former Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre has a new tenant as of this month. Frank saw some of the costumes from the theatre being used in a high school production of 42nd Street.

One of the high school students in the play has the last name Valderrama. Krisha went to high school with Wilmer Valderrama of That ‘70s Show.

The lead character, Peggy Sawyer, was played by Kristin Farley’s daughter Madison. She taught herself how to tap dance before the audition. The actress who plays Peggy needs to be the best dancer in the cast.

Frank’s wife Jere brought home some items from his mother’s house, including two antique chairs. Krisha goes to the living room to see the chairs. Frank didn’t know that his mom used to like telling the story of how Frank bought the chairs for her in the summer after she was widowed.

Frank’s wife also brought home the puppets that Frank had as a child. They remind Krisha of some of the puppets from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Krisha didn’t react well to an attempt at puppet therapy for her ADD as a child. She was given Ritalin but finally found help by taking dance classes.

Krisha has been training to be a stage manager at the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud. She finds that she really loves running the sound board at the theater.

Her intense work schedule leaves her exhausted on her one day off per week. Frank thought she slept all day because of her second vaccine shot but she said it was because of the long hours at work.

The nurse asked Frank about his “little friend” when he got his second shot. He was prepared for side effects. He took a nap and had chicken noodle soup at the ready however he had no reaction to the shot.

Krisha & Frank haven’t seen each other in two weeks but it feels longer. They did one audio-only episode and tried to record another on Saturday but Krisha had to help solve an important audio problem with an underwater speaker at the theater. Frank Googled himself while waiting to hear from Krisha.

Krisha has been working long hours at Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud. She and Frank plan to post podcast episodes three days a week. The next See More Smokies episode will be posted on Saturday. The next regular podcast episode will be posted on Monday, April 26.

Frank feels like he has extra time on his hands now that he has finished recording Scholars’ Bowl episodes. One of the teams of high school students had some fun teasing Frank during their introductions. He loved it.

Some of the high school students have names that are challenging to pronounce. One student was named Krishna. A former radio boss would intentionally mispronounce Krisha’s name as Kesha, which she didn’t like.

Krisha & Frank received a photo of their friend Myranda wearing a logo hoodie and a photo of Aaron wearing a logo t-shirt. Thanks you guys!

Krisha has lost some weight while working hard at Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud. The 11:00 a.m. show audience eats the same chicken and potatoes meal as the nighttime audiences.

Frank and his wife went to Mass on Easter morning. Some of his Facebook friends avoid the word “Easter” and refer to it as “Resurrection Sunday” instead. Easter lasts eight days in the Catholic Church.

Frank and Jere colored eggs on Saturday. Jere made a four-colored egg. Frank scribbled on one and called it a “Jackson Pollock.” Jere suggested a topic for today by buying a bag of candy that resembles circus peanuts.

Frank went looking for rocks in his yard on Saturday. It looked like he was on an Easter egg hunt. He is placing the rocks along the property line.

Krisha & Frank decided to take a few days off for Easter. They won’t have shows on Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Monday.

Krisha is working full-time at Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud. She worked 66 hours last week. Spring break is one of the peak seasons in Pigeon Forge. The heavy schedule reminds Krisha of the jobs she had performing in Orlando theme parks.

Frank is impressed that all the actors in the show have additional roles behind the scenes or in the front of the house as greeters or photographers or servers.

Today is T.A.C.O. Tuesday when Krisha & Frank Talk About Content Out of a basket. Today’s topic was submitted via email by Bruce Patrick. “What showbiz moment or performance are you most proud of?”

Krisha recalls not getting cast in the Big F.A.T. Holiday Cabaret but being hired as choreographer and stage manager. She said it was a pride-swallowing moment. Four days before the show opened, the actress who was chosen over Krisha dropped out of the show and Krisha was asked to step in. She worked hard to prepare and delivered a performance that made her proud.

Frank is proud of the elaborate live radio plays he directed and produced at KLOS. They recreated famous radio shows from the golden age of the medium.

Frank Jr. sent Jere a frying pan for her birthday. He added a $5 spatula to the order so he would get free shipping. Frank was anxious about using the new frying pan to cook his eggs for breakfast. He thought about eating something else or perhaps finding the old frying pan and using it.

Krisha recently got a cast-iron frying pan. She cooked a steak by heating the pan to 500°, searing the steak, and then letting the heat of the pan cook the meat without putting the pan back in the oven.

Krisha watched a 40-minute workout video while in bed. She has started meal-prepping, including a meal that was like beef with broccoli. Her sweet tooth kicked in and she made a dessert from a recipe on TikTok. She mixed a half a box of sugar-free Jello into a tub of Cool Whip and let it refreeze.

Krisha channels the Muppets when they realize that they have to rush out the door to an appointment. Details tomorrow!

Krisha & Frank are still reeling from seeing their logo on a pair of jogging pants. They originally thought it might be funny to design the pants that way.

Krisha has a new job as an actress at the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud and Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Attraction. Both shows are located in Pigeon Forge. Her main role is to be the “Ma McCoy swing.” She wants to lose 5 pounds to be able to add another role that involves stunts.

Actresses who portray Peter Pan in a play or Tinker Bell at Walt Disney World have to be under a certain weight. Krisha is hoping to get a role that involves some aerial work.

On the night before her call-back audition, Krisha contacted Frank’s wife for some singing coaching. Jere told her to approach the note from above.

Today is T.A.C.O. Tuesday and Krisha & Frank Talk About Content Out of a basket. Today’s question is “What is your favorite salad dressing?” Frank is discouraged that the dressings he likes have too much high-fructose corn syrup.

Krisha likes O’Charley’s ranch dressing and Olive Garden Signature Italian dressing. Frank’s parents liked Wishbone Italian dressing. Krisha’s granny liked Catalina dressing.

In episode 96, Krisha told the story of going to a beer garden alone to hear musician Grady Milligan. Krisha first learned of Grady online when he was performing with Knox Brew Tours as they made food deliveries during the lockdown.

Krisha clicked “interested” on one of Grady’s recent Facebook events. He messaged her and asked Krisha to bring him two fast-food cheeseburgers. Krisha put the burgers in his guitar case with his other tips.

Frank is reminded of a singer-songwriter who dated his cousin. When they broke up, he wrote a song about her called “What a Waste of a Pretty Face.” Here is a video of him performing it: https://youtu.be/Q3W_dUZUWso

Frank “dad-armed” Krisha when a car in front of them stopped suddenly in Pigeon Forge. After recording a segment, they got “hangry” and went to a drive-through with a 2 for $6 mix-and-match special.

Krisha & Frank pulled into a parking space to eat their food. A family got into the minivan in the next space. As they backed out, Frank honked to get their attention because one of the teens had dropped his karate belt.

Frank is reminded of trying to eat a burger while driving with his friend Bean. He had to stop along the interstate to brush off the detritus from the burger. Frank is also reminded of meeting singer Jermaine Stewart who said he could only eat half of a Big Mac.

For Saturday’s travel vlog, Krisha & Frank visited Gatlinburg SkyLift Park for a second time. They had gone in January but the wind made the footage unusable. They have since purchased a better camera and microphones using money from advertisers.

In Saturday’s episode, Krisha noticed a pizza being sent up in a SkyLift chair. She says she can recognize the difference between brands of pizza by smell. If you want to send pizza money for Krisha to do a blind smell test, use PayPal to send money to KrishaAndFrank @gmail.com

Frank once went to a meetup of ex-New Yorkers to have pizza and Drake’s cakes. When he mentions the creamy filling, Krisha hits the cliche deejay bell. Frank says she gets to use it because her name is first on the show and because he is not a bell chauvinist.

At the meetup, they served pie from Brooklyn Pizza, which has since closed. The pizza chef now owns Little Nicky’s Pizza in Solway. Krisha wants to get some birthday cannolis from Little Nicky’s.

Frank is reminded of getting pizza with his dad at Columbus Circle after participating in an exercise program called “Saturday Morning Boys.” The boys would go to a calisthenics class followed by specialized classes in fencing, boxing, track, swimming, etc.

On her birthday, Krisha had a mani/pedi. Her fingernails were dipped. Frank stops her from showing her toenails on camera. He knows a young woman who gets creepy messages from guys asking to see her feet.

Krisha gets creepy direct messages from actual guys. Frank gets direct messages from fake accounts that use an attractive woman as the profile picture. Krisha & Frank both had to deal with unwanted messages from listeners when they worked in radio.
