Few people know it was Frank Zappa who gave the Kremlin the inspiration to take down the Berlin Wall. Frank Zappa was widely respected in Eastern Europe as a musical genius and a cultural icon. At a Berlin concert, Zappa received a phone call from the Kremlin who asked him how the Soviets might increase foreign investment through public relations. Zappa explained that tearing down the Berlin Wall would be a great gesture and to do it on May Day an even greater gesture as a strategy. Zappa explains this conversation in a Tonight Show interview in February 1989 with guest host Jay Leno.

Where is this video???

It was taken down and I truly believe the conservatives and Republicans do not want this information known. It would prove their revision of history and white-washing of Reagan's very less than stellar legacy.

Haha, that's hilarious. Let me try one:

September 28, 1973: Frank receives a frantic phone call from Richard Nixon during a lengthy tour break. Nixon knows Frank is a master of recording (and has heard "Telephone Conversation"). He implores Frank to go through the process of erasing a recording from a tape. When Frank provides him the details on how easy it is, Nixon profusely thanks him (and has the conversation with Frank erased, and not one other person has ever known this.)
