Only in reruns, so the SNL FZ shows don't come on much. You might be able to get them someplace like soulseek, though.

Or you could download from here, if you have DVD software. There are currently 7 seeders, so it will likely be around for awhile.

The showing of SNL where he was a musical guest has already been released (Season 2) and the one where he was a host is still being released this month.

Well there was that bit in the Real Frank Zappa Book where Frank was describing trying to book venues for the LSO to rehearse in and "every one of them was filled with Christmas shit."

"Christmas shit" heh heh heh. Sums up my attitude toward it. :-)

I was on Barfko Swill's mailing list in 1987 and they sent a postcard in December with FZ in a santa hat (not the same photo shown below). I don't have it anymore but someone probably has scanned it.
