WUSB-FM’s Zappathon Returns

If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that us here at KUR have supported wusb.fm‘s Zappathon ever since we first heard of it. The last edition featured KUR-pal SOFA live on air, as well as a bunch of soundbites which had been recorded and sent in by KUR-readers. Great fun! That was 2006…

…but lo and behold, the Zappathon is back!
Says Bill “Ol’ Baggy Eyes” Amutis:

WUSB-FM, broadcasting from Stony Brook University, will once again be hosting a twelve hour celebration of Frank Zappa and his music. It will be running on Sunday, April 11, beginning at 12 noon and run until midnight EDT. And yes, the whole thing will be available as a stream at wusb.fm. John Tabacco and Mr. Edison (moi) will be hosting this marathon and while it may be daunting to some, we know from past experience that we’ll only scratch the surface of what we wanted to play.

Be sure to tune in!

    Another great party of Zappa tunes, related personalities, and such. Like all the other Zappathon’s at WUSB-FM, I wouldn’t miss it for the world!

    Though I rarely show Long Island ‘pride’ (Islip Terrace, born & raised until ’88, AFTER seeing FZ at the Nassau Coll.), I’m excited to hear this!

  6. Mr. Edison says:

    Thanks to Kill Ugly Radio for spreading the word and thanks to everybody who tuned in. Glad you liked it.

    Yo MF! No time for me right now, unfortunately… I tuned in tho’ – and made a pledge. The Lorraine Belcher interview was worth the ‘cost’ of admission, IMO. Kudos to WUSB for reviving this sorely missed event!

    Once again, WUSB out did themselves with their 2010 Zappathon. Zappa News, Interviews, and of course, 12 solid hours of Zappa’s music.
