While riding in the car tonight I tuned into the local NYC classic rock station (104.3)...turns out they were doing a live broadcast from a newly opened Hard Rock Cafe in Orlando, Florida, which is displaying, among other artifacts, none other than the infamous FZ woman's undergarment quilt constructed during the 1981 tour! Apparently it's hanging on the wall!<br><br>To commemorate this event, the DJ offered approximately one minute of LAME COMMENTARY, wherein he attempted to make a few WITTY OBSERVATIONS and then proceeded to cap off the festivities by playing DANCIN' FOOL for the entire NYC area! This was the first FZ song I've heard on a commercial NYC rock station in about SEVEN YEARS!  WOWIE ZOWIE, what a night! <br><br>

Yeah, commercial radio offers a lot of support for FZ.  NOT.<br><br>On the day I heard Frank had died, when I went home for lunch I turned on the local rock station to see if they would have any kind of mention or tribute.  Well they did.  Guess what song they played for him.  Smoke On The Water.

I got all excited and then I read the date of the original post.
