  1. One of his best interviews, and proof that in a perfect world Uncle Frank would have been a great TV personality.

  2. Zowie! That’s some big hair! Saw this when it was on. Good to see it again! Notice how the band plays “Brain Police” as he walks out!

  3. Holy cow was that Paul Shaffer at the very end there? Zappa Rules! Nice intro music too!
