Every year when the snow gets ready to fly, I get a little sad – because on December 4th, 1993 Frank Zappa checked out. I’m tossing this one up today, because tomorrow GOPer talking heads will make the TV circuit, oozing talking points. This one is from Zappa’s performance on Saturday Night Live in 1976:

I’m thinking Frank was anticipating the advent of Faux News.

“That’s right folks, don’t touch that dial…”

While Frank had caustic commentary about politics, he – above all – was a musician. Here’s a HQ performance from 1988 in Barcelona of Frank’s instrumental “Watermellon In Easter Hay” – enjoy!
