Dreams Of The River is a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Work In Progress. It was originally broadcast in 1986.


A washed-up musician tries to fill time. As a college student, he steals brownies from Howard Johnson's restaurants. In New York he gets a job as a janitor at a church and dates a German waitress. Stealing sunglasses, cafe meals. Telemarketing for an opera company. Subway stations as an underground world. Playing music in a bar. Hiring prostitutes. Imagining oneself as a character in a novel.


  • This program contains no music other than drones


Shares most of its text with Fat Man Down, but includes scenes from a boat going down river in place of hospital scenes, more sound effects, and little music. Not a remix, but a recording of the same text with small changes.
