Apparently, two more sessions were recorded and possibly broadcasted as mentioned in an article back in 2006. Here is the excerpt from the article:
Franks recently made a quantum leap from software to cyberspace, spending several months hosting XM satellite radio's "A Songwriter's Journal," playing American jazz standards and contemporary songs he believed were imbued with qualities of the greats. The show ran six months, ending in June. "I did insert myself into the show," Franks admits. "I used some of my duets and versions of my songs covered by other artists, like Natalie Cole."
