    Join us tonight at Midnight EST for Conceptual Continuity with HowieZowie and sCreamGrrrl on WERU FM 89.9/99.9 in Maine and streaming live/archiving at www.weru.org for the rest of us. The Secret Word is "Ethel/Ethyl". We are rebroadcasting our most popular show to date exactly two years after it originally aired.This show dates back to when I was still live on air in Maine solo. It was the first show in which I honoured a listener requested theme (for my then girlfriend (sCreamGrrrl). It was the first interview show I did, as well as the first time I paired another artist with Frank (both of which have become popular features on the show). Only the Pink Floyd mash up and Koen Fu shows have generated anywhere near the buzz as this one. It pairs Michael Roe/The 77's with Zappa - featuring Dr. Love himself waxing poetic about Frank's influence. Many of you have come to know the Sevens music from our show - but for those that may not know it, our theme song is "Earache" off their '95 album "Tom Tom Blues". The majority of our current listeners have never heard this one - if you fall into that crowd, don't miss it! See you there - don't forget to Break Out Yer Headphones and be sure to Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance!

    Join us tonight at Midnight EST for Conceptual Continuity with HowieZowie and sCreamGrrrl on WERU FM 89.9/99.9 in Maine and streaming live/archiving at www.weru.org for the rest of us. The Secret Word is "What Could Possibly Go Wrong?", featuring guest co-host Corey Paradise. This is a replay of one of our craziest shows ever from December 2012. Corey and Howie donned the alter egos "Kingston Black Napkins" and "Ruben Moe-Humm" to tackle a live remix show armed with: 2 mics/2 laptops/2 cellphones/3 cd decks/3 turntables. Absolute madness - what could possibly go wrong indeed?!? Don't forget to Break Out Yer Headphones and be sure to Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance!

    Join us Saturday night at Midnight EST for Conceptual Continuity with HowieZowie and sCreamGrrrl on WERU FM 89.9/99.9 in Maine and streaming live/archiving at www.weru.org for the rest of us. The Secret Word is "Shakey Gets Zapped", featuring the pairing of Neil Young with Frank Zappa. This show was supposed to play last week as sCreamGrrrl's birthday request, but the station's automation issues pushed our schedule back. This is a redux of the final live broadcast of the show and was a combination tribute to our personal Canadian/American melding, as well as a special request from sCreamGrrrl in the first place. It also features the cast of HeadRush Show joining me in the studio. The madness that ensued is not to be missed!
