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...

It's the peoples' ZappaCast! In this episode, we play your requests...and there's some good ones! Also, the ZappaCast brain trust wraps up our roundtable chat by answering your questions. It's ZappaCast to the twelfth power!

Also, it's worth mentioning that the author of ZAPPA THE HARD WAY does in fact know that "Bolero" is on THE BEST BAND YOU'VE NEVER HEARD IN YOUR LIFE album smiley
