1994-06-01 Frank Zappa

Frank ZappaCover of Frank Zappa
He was an amazing talent. He could have been successful as a jazz musician, as a gifted classical guitarist, as the leader of a radical revolutionary hippy band, a music producer, an author of stage musicals, a public advocate and a lot more. But, he decided instead to be all of these things. An innovative and revolutionary musician who did, in a very long career, achieve something that many others with talent had failed to do -- he never sold out. He always did it the way he wanted to. Frank Vincent Zappa. This is a playful salute to Frank and his life and work, and I am sure he would have wanted it that way.

Selections included: Mothers of Invention, Ian Underwood, Flo & Eddy, Muslim 8, Lumpy Gravy, Valley Girl, Plastic People, Peaches in Regalia, Brown Shoes Don't Make it, Bow Tie Daddy, Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance, Montana, Call Any Vegetable, Dead Girls of London, Doreen, Wind Up Workin' in A Gas Station, Camarillo Brillo, GSpot Tornado, Mr. Greenjeans, Uncle Meat, Strictly Gentile, 200 Motels and a lot more.
