    The latest show began with a rather dull song by Pink Floyd followed by an extended interview with Frank Zappa's son.

    This is the Freakier Zone, not Bob Harris!

    I hope this isn't a sign that dull mainstream old man's music is not pushing the good stuff to the margins. We can sit through the occasional grim trudge threw a National Heath or Hatfield and the North dirge in the knowledge that Jean-Claude Vannier, or Magma, or Sun Ra or Pansonic will be along in a minute - but a whole show devoted to this OGWT rubbish is unfair on the rest of us.

    I think that some of Frank Zappa's music is quite good, and I've always thought Dweezil Zappa to be an above average guitarist. What would you recommend for a change.
