Another VERY SPECIAL ZappaCast...we salute the late, great George Duke!! The crux of the biscuit here is Professor Ekers' 2012 conversation with George (conducted for Mick's forthcoming book ZAPPA'S GEAR) in which George goes all over fond for his days with Mr. Zappa. Throw in a tribute from Reverend Greenaway, lotsa great music and even some words from the lovely Ruth Underwood and you have yourself a VERY SPECIAL show indeed! Thanks for everything, George...

SNAT! The ZappaCast takes you all the way back, boys and girls...back to the 1960s with the peaceful and loving Mothers Of Invention. You'll hear two concerts from 1967 (Lund and Copenhagen) in their (as far as we know) entirety. Professor Ekers gives you some serious info on FZ's Gibson Switchmaster guitar in his Zappa's Gear spot, while the good Reverend Greenaway has a brisk selection of rare '60s allsorts for ya. Didja Get Any Onya?
