    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 "The Ultimate Halloween Extravaganza!" and it is part two of our 3rd Anniversary of On-Air Broadcasting Celebration. Last week we played a listener suggested theme and unfortunately missed much of the show due to a prior commitment. This week we will not miss a second - and you won't want to either. This show will be a compilation of the infamous Palladium performances presented in "Audio Movie For Your Ears" format. See you there - don't forget to Break Out Yer Headphones and be sure to Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance!

The Secret Word is "Crank Some Frank!" It is our 3rd Anniversary Show and we asked for your requests.

The Secret Word is "Keep Calm And Hammer On!" This is another show where I sat down without a plan - this time the inspiration came from the coaster I was putting my coffee cup on. We are featuring the Hammersmith Odeon release recorded live in London, England on 25 - 27 January & 28 February 1978. The theme is threefold: 1) It serves as a sampler for those that have not heard the album and are wondering if they want to shell out for a 3 disc box. 2) Presents a live '78 show "that never actually happened" - being a compilation of 4 nights. 3) Highlights the source concerts for iconic albums such as "Sheik Yerbouti" & "Shut Up n' Play Yer Guitar"....and don't forget that next week is our 3rd Anniversary Show!

The Secret Word is "4 Eras: LIVE! All Over The Place!" This is one of those shows where I sat down without a plan and it evolved several times before settling into the end product. It began as a Napoleon Murphy Brock show, then it was You Can't Do That Onstage Anymore - it ended up a compilation of live recordings from various albums highlighting four eras. What matters is that it's gonna be a good time. See you there - don't forget to Break Out Yer Headphones and be sure to Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance!

The Secret Word is "Of Course I'll Introduce You To Warren!" In the mid to late 90's Warren Cuccurullo set about getting back to his roots to play "the kind of music I played with Frank." We will be featuring selections from the two albums that venture brought us - "th@n.ks 2: / Fr@nk." & "Road Rage". He was helped along the journey with drummers Vinnie Colaiuta, Joe Travers & Jerry Cuccurullo - as well as Pino Palladino, Wes Wehmiller & Nick Beggs on bass/Chapman Stick. Warren, Zappa, Prog, guitar, bass, Stick, drums - this show has your flavour in spades! See you there - don't forget to Break Out Yer Headphones and be sure to Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance!

      I need to get more Warren (still rebuilding my collection after a fire) - I'd love to do another Warren show!

      Kudos for getting this music out there. Hope you enjoyed doing this show. While the world-at-large awaits new music from his group "The Rose Vortex" Warren Cuccurullo, Azar Lawrence, Tommmy Mars & Joe Travers there is clip of Warren sitting in with The Azar Lawrence Quintet back in September of 2013. Link post in DZW Group - Sir Links Alot.

      Hopefully down the line you can do a show featuring Warren's works with Ustad Sultan Khan (The Master, 2014' Six Degrees Records) and Shankar (The Blue, 2001 One Way Records)

The Secret Word is "Don, John, Eddie & Larry". This week we will be exploring the violinists that performed with Frank. This show is dedicated to yet another violinist - Basho Watson Parks. He unexpectedly appeared on the show last year, and we hope to lasso this busy guy once again. Who knows, maybe he will be available to chime in on the thread during the show. Regardless, we honour and thank him for his encouragement, support and contributions to Conceptual Continuity and Chain Mail.
