May 13, 2020: Zappa For President
On this weeks From The Vault, We Go back to April 15, 1991. Flagship Pacifica Station KPFA in Berkeley California was celebrating its 42nd Anniversary, and longtime music host Charles Amirkhanian invited music icon Frank Zappa for an afternoon of Politics.
Thats right experimental music and composer who did about as much as one person could do to stretch the boundaries of music and creativity actually considered a run at the Presidency. He felt it would take an outsider to really shake up Washington and Im pretty sure he would have done that and wed be all the better for it.
They play Zappa’s arrangement of Ravel’s Bolero from his then soon to be live release called The Best Band You Never Heard In Your Life.
Zappa is on top of his game in both his discussion with Charles Amirkhanian and listener call ins.
