A dense ecumenical bandana at the right hand of God's big rhumba? Nah...it's the ZappaCast! In this episode, we say farewell to the legendary Mrs. Gail Zappa with the full ZappaCast panel of Scott Parker, Andrew Greenaway, Scott Fischer and --returning after a fairly lengthy absence -- The Professor, Mick Ekers! Join us as we give GZ a (hopefully) suitable sendoff, right here on the ZappaCast.
