Gotcha
Saginaw 1:40:23 PM
Good afternoon
James (host) 1:40:46 PM
Hello Saginaw! Good to have here.
DJ Simon 1:41:09 PM
Nice work tracking down those classic tracks to give his back story some context.
DJ Simon 1:41:16 PM
Enjoyed that a lot.
James (host) 1:41:52 PM
I appreciate that comment DJS
DJ Simon 1:46:17 PM
Sandra La said Haley Mills sang Wowie Zowie in The Parent Trap.
DJ Simon 1:46:34 PM
Is that true or is she pulling my leg?
James (host) 1:48:25 PM
She sang Zowie Wowie...I believe
James (host) 1:50:00 PM
Just joking. I find nothing on the inner-hole
ex-DJ tamer 2:03:50 PM
A bit of ephemera for y'all: the ebook version of Permanent Damage: Memoirs of an Outrageous Girl by Mercy Fontenot is on sale today for $1.99 at famous online bookseller.
ex-DJ tamer 2:04:22 PM
She was one the GTOs, a "girl band" that Zappa put together.
James (host) 2:13:43 PM
Much obliged EX-L

Pardon. The video appears to have sound drop outs.
DJ Simon 2:38:48 PM
Thanks for playing my request! "Giant oversized mechanical transcontinental hobby horse."
James (host) 2:40:16 PM
A double shot of DJS requests
DJ Simon 2:40:28 PM
I thought the version I knew was from "You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore" but I think it's actually from "Them Or Us" – hadn't heard this version before.
Barry Hart 2:40:30 PM
Good afternoon,James and FZJ Jay,great to be hearing the Frank Zappa birthday special.Intrigued to hear the songs from the 1950s and early β€˜60s-they provide some sense of the cultural and musical environment Zappa started out in.
DJ Simon 2:40:40 PM
Tampoon!
James (host) 2:44:03 PM
Barry. Appreciate that. We've never really delved into that history and I had the interview snipets. Sadly I didn't do such a good job segueing them. Pro-AM
bruckner4 2:50:28 PM

PiGuy 3:49:40 PM
Work and forced holiday work gatherings might be taking a breather. Did I miss anything?
James (host) 3:50:04 PM
Some Zappa music.
PiGuy 3:50:27 PM
Oh, OK.
James (host) 3:50:47 PM
Guacamole Queen
PiGuy 3:53:12 PM
We are supposed to eat food and drink(alcohol maybe) and then walk in to the hall and listen to the Holiday Pops. Hard to get into a holiday spirit when you are around it all day. But maybe that's just me being cynical.
James (host) 3:55:21 PM
Wow...I thought booze was out of the holiday party to stave harassment suits. Santa suits are OK.
James (host) 3:55:34 PM
Holiday office party
PiGuy 3:57:33 PM
Well, there was a lot of booze before I came here but there are occasional parties or events that we are allowed one drink at.
PiGuy 3:58:45 PM
Santa is here at every show, BTW. Don't know how he does it.
James (host) 4:00:25 PM
I once saw the holiday pops with the DJ No-Sticks and Hip Priest who won tickets. We even got to meet Maestro Lockhart before the show.
PiGuy 4:02:49 PM
I know the maestro well. Even went to his house in the South End and saw him in his pajamas. I was fixing a computer issue. He sneaks out during intermission to light up. Cigarettes, that is.
James (host) 4:04:10 PM
@johnny.blazes on the insta for the home version of The Buttcracker
Saginaw 4:04:22 PM
Yes. Five Man Electrical Band. RIP Les Emmerson, a CoVid victim
PiGuy 4:05:30 PM
What's worse? Buttcracker or Nutcracker?
James (host) 4:06:55 PM
9pm The Buttcracker
William Ham 4:10:02 PM
Just stumbled 'pon this. Brings back memories of a 24-hour Zappa marathon on a, ahem, different Boston-area non-commercial station, lawd, going back nearly 40 years ago now. Thanks for this...
James (host) 4:12:24 PM
Don't forget! Saturday. Dec 25th. X-mas Day. Mixcloud live stream only!! http://artguy.com/jesus2021.png
James (host) 4:12:57 PM
Glad to hear/here William!!!
James (host) 4:20:31 PM
I had a cookie. And a brownie.
DJ Simon 4:41:25 PM
"And the stuff in the strainer has a mind of its own." I remember the Dangerous Kitchen being a surprise selection in the FZ hologram show.
William Ham 4:43:02 PM
I recall his vocals here (and on "The Jazz Discharge Party Hats," unlikely to be heard on any radio show anywhere) described as "Crazy Guggenheim on Quaaludes." A reference that is probably lost on anyone under 106.
James (host) 4:43:03 PM
AHhhh yes! The holographic show....
