Program Title: NewFound Records - Ep. 608 - A. Frank Willis
Description: He was one of NL’s most popular entertainers in the late 1970s and early ‘80s. His songs Take Me As I Am and Hello Mom and Dad, I’m Coming Home For Christmas are modern classics.

He continued to make a living from music in his latter career by providing expatriate Newfoundlanders & Labradorians working on the mainland with a taste of home away from home.

A. Frank passed away February 27, 2011. Later that year, MusicNL posthumously named him recipient of its Lifetime Achievement Award.

Today, on the 10th anniversary of his passing, NFR presents a musical biography of Newfoundland & Labrador’s One Man Band, A. Frank Willis.
