It’s no secret that I love The Best Show on WFMU. If you’ve never heard it, I’m sorry because you’re missing out. Host Tom Scharpling describes it as “Three Hours of Mirth, Music and Mayhem” but he’s selling himself and the show short because it’s probably be the smartest and funniest thing on the radio today (and maybe ever depending on where you stand on the Bob and Ray Show).
One of the benefits of being a Best Show fan is getting in touch with other fans, a.k.a. Friends of Tom. Recently, the charming, talented and world famous FOT Lisa Jane Persky (it’s true, look her up) began taking photos of Best Show fans and posting them on her photo site. A few days ago I met with Lisa to have my Friend of Tom photo taken. The official FOT photo can be found at her site so go to it and take a look:
Just click on “Galleries” and “Friends of Tom” to see me and the other FOT’s who have been photographed. There will be many more coming soon so keep checking back.
I’m very pleased with the way the FOT photo came out so I hope you’ll go check it out as well as her other photos, Lisa Jane Persky is a fantastic photographer and it was an honor to meet her person to take part in this. Here is an outtake from Mondays photos.
Thank you Lisa for including me in this project, I can’t wait to see more.
