The PMRC Letters In Print

With a hat tip to our pal of British persuasion Magic Fingers, KUR obtained scans of the original PMRC documents as they were sent out by Frank Zappa during (and following) the PMRC hearings back in ’85.

Most of the documents were sent out as a package or kit to give guidance and background information to anyone who wanted to support FZ’s anti-PMRC position on a local level (phone your representative, help get this stopped). The text of FZ’s statement to Congress and the “It’s Not Over Yet, Folks” were then sent out at a later date obviously after the hearings.

While some of the letters were already available in text form at the wiki, these are the originals — warts, mid 80s typewriter fonts ‘n all.

    Thanks Al!
    Though once again, I want to stress that these scans were made and sent to me by MagicFingers, so the credit really should go to him. I’m the html monkey that happens to know how to put them online, ‘s all! ;)
