88FIVE Live In-Studio with Neal Francis

88FIVE Live In-Studio with Neal Francis

88FIVE Live In-Studio with Neal Francis is brought to you by The Independent 88.5 FM, CSUN & Saddleback College.

Join 88.5 FM's Saturday Evening host Barry Funkhouser in conversation with Chicago-based, retro-soul artist Neal Francis!

Neal Francis is currently touring worldwide, promoting his most recent album, 'In Plain Sight.' We had a chance to catch up with him at our studio to discuss how he found his passion for music at a young age, what his first performances were like, and what role his 70s aesthetic plays in his life. When it comes to writing music and playing shows, Neal tells Barry, "I try to work on being less aware of myself, and I sort of just let it go." 

This 88FIVE Live In-Studio session with Neal Francis includes live performances of "Can't Stop The Rain," "Problems," and "Alameda Apartments."

Before playing the songs, Neal Francis gives us an insight into the inspiration for each piece. He has a unique point of view that you won't want to miss; press play and go on this journey into the mind of Neal Francis!


88FIVE Live In-Studio sessions are recorded live at 88.5 FM studios.
