93 Frank Zappa

An excellent set of tracks and someone we’ve never covered before. And despite it being the Memorial Day weekend in the US (oh, why can’t se coordinate public holidays better), we had 22 listeners for most of the show.

Pre and post-show music were by artists that Zappa admired, a category with very few entries.
