There arn't many individuals who have enough material to warrant their own radio station, but FZ does.

I would expect the playlist to also include the recordings of the many musicians who worked with him and those artists that he also produced (ie: Wild Man Fischer, Beefheart, Grand Funk etc).

Just for the archive ... I would be interested to DJ at least one evening of his music.

Capitol 602 (Transkei) once played a song for me after I wrote in. The evening DJ in those days (circa 1982 ish) was a Zappa fan and played lots of FZ stuff late at night. They played 'Fine Girl' for me on the early morning 'School Call' show.

'This is for EV who is getting ready for school this morning, thanks for listening'. I went to school BEAMING.

What album would you play on air if you were given the chance?

I had a radio show on college FM and did a few Zappa Specials. One show i did on a saturday night from 11 pm to 5 am. Nothing but Zappa and wild and crazy people phoning in and coming into the studio to recite poetry and basically space out.....

When SUAPYG came out i played to whole thing one night....we got calls...both thanking and insulting it was great fun.

One sunday morning we played Syborg from Joes and a local priest complained to the FCC that we were extolling homosexuality on the radio during a holy day! Of course we played catholic girls espeacially for him the next sunday!

Hmm i wonder where Simon the stoned engineer is now ?

Been listening to shortwave radio for 20 years and finally, last evening about 9:15 P.M. eastern, heard Franks (Hot Rats) Peaches at 9.5 Mhz.

I've mentioned this elsewhere, but once when living in Melbourne back in 1980 I got a factory job to help pay the rent and they had a radio playing all day. The station they chose - I can't remember what it was called or if it's still there - just played albums in rotation and nothing else. Sometime early in my first week there, Hot Rats suddenly started playing, it was a totally welcome surprise of course. I can't remember how long it took to go through their album list, but they periodically got back to Hot Rats many times.

Well actually yes i have. On French classical FM. I've heard Mo' and Herb' vacation once and Girl in the magnesium dress.

And also there is always a FZ section in the contemporary classical bin at the record store (FNAC).

I've heard a few pieces on an internet radio station, PostClassic radio. It's siginficant because it's run by Kyle Gann, who's the most intelligent critic I've ever heard of (probably because he's a composer too)

FM isn't dead, but it will be soon. See the "Zappa on Sirius" thread. That's the way to go.

It would be cool to play the first half of Apostrophe' since the songs all blend together so nicely, and then plat stuff like "Eat The Question" or "More Trouble Everyday"

'I am the Slime' was the first 'Rap' tune I ever heard.

(admittedly, the composition gets musical after the intro, but it's a 'rap' initially).

I heard on 21610 KHz RARIO EXTERIOR DE ESPANA at 1354 UTC September 22 2013 end part of For Calvin (And His Next Two Hitch-Hikers). It was a kind of advertise for a program.
I recorded it :mrgreen: any one know a website to upload files?

LOL cool!! i Did a 2 hours program in March 30th 1986 Quebec CKRL 89.1 FM i called the show ZappaArchives but i did a mistake i said Frank has changed his name for Michael Rietzke http://www.discogs.com/release/1321988 because the idiot at LP store told me it was a Zappa album. The store was Écono-Disque on St-Joseph street Quebec.

I used to work at a college station out of Bethany, WV. WVBC 88.1. I played tons of Zappa on the air. The Best Band You Never Heard in Your Life had just been released and I played the crap out of it.

DeepTracks regularly plays Zappa, even heard Pound For A Brown Solos from YCDTOSA4 recently. Big Swify, Yo Mama, Fifty-Fifty, Zomby Woof and a lot of WOIIFTM are played. Of course Montana and Peaches, Muffin Man and Joe's Garage are played a lot as well.
