Why no android app for Zappa Radio?

I tried listening thru http://zappa.com/zapparadio/ but it just fails. :(

Mmmh... there are no RSS feeds for the Zappa news or this forum, and the albums are not available on iTunes or Spotify.
Why would there be something like an android app?
Maybe you should ask this question directly in the gz sez section.

A bit confused as I couldn't find a "gz sez" section to post this question in.
You bring up a great point... What is going on out there that makes it seem they are technophobes?
Look at what Louie CK just did: He posted a gig for streaming or download, priced at $5 with no DRM attached, and in a few weeks netted over $1million. With no distribution people (or other unnecessary middlemen taking a cut) the gross and the net are nearly the same. A quality 21st century product offered in an easy to buy format and buyers flock to you.

Well, it seems that "what other artists do" does not apply or fit in with what the Zappas want to do at the moment.

Download any radio streaming app that allows adding an mpeg audio stream by URL (probably most do), and use this URL:

Code:
http://www.live365.com/play/zappa_radio?from=pls

Oh, also, you can just download the Live365 app for Android too, and search for 'zappa'.
