How Radio Was Done Part 83

August 14, 2008

We begin 1985, and this one is mostly devoted to language censorship in music and features Frank Zappa from some of the many media interviews he did on the subject around 85. This is when the /”PMRC/” emerged as a religiously motivated group looking to label Rock albums for obscene language. Zappa debates them on radio and TV (Larry King, Crossfire, Johnny Carson), backed up in this mix with some examples and lots of Receptacle callers.

    Good to see things are working around here 😉

    Looking forward to buying up some OTE soon.

    great! let us know if something doesn’t work properly, and if you have any requests.
    we’re adding new shows every day, and pretty soon you’ll be able to buy entire series at a discounted rate.

    It isn’t working, I was being Scottishly sarcastic. I was a little drunk last night. When I try to download I get a very very VERY stupid error message.

    oh – that “smartass” emoticon was too small to read, especially while on heavy narcotics, which apparently also impaired my ability to make free show downloads.
    but it’s working now (for me) and thanks for letting us know, sorta.

    I am only getting a few MB of the whole file for some reason. Firefox says the file has finished downloading but it’s barely 10% of the entire 165 MB file

    No ‘smartass’ emoticon this time. Still not working. I got 3 minutes of the 3 hour show. It’s a great intro though. Tried on ie (shudder) but no joy over there either, so not a Mozilla problem.

  7. snugganut says:

    problem resolved. try now, and thanks for your patience.

    It really is a great intro tune. It always stirs up something inside me when I hear the start of OTE. And then the anticipation of what will come in the middle before it starts up again. Genius, pure genius. Thanks for sorting it out snugganut.
