    We are fast approaching the 5th Anniversary episode of Conceptual Continuity. I am working on something special, but in the interim (as is our tradition) we are replaying some of our celebration shows from the past. This week the Secret Word is; "1st Anniversary Show" ~ featuring the second ever in-studio appearance by sCreamGrrrl!

    Four years ago this week this episode saw it's premiere. It was done per request of one beautiful Canadian Grrrl and has been a perennial favourite ever since. Here's how I advertised it then:


    "How do you go from magic fingers to tall trees via Aberdeen to invocations and ritual dances of pumpkins, pearls, snakes, homeless swine unbalanced by an earache, and cigar smoking brain police - but still get your status back, baby...while avoiding slime riots and not end up working at a gas station? Shout 'You Don't Scare Me!', fill her up with leaded or put on your walking shoes and join me for Conceptual Continuity with HowieZowie. I will be presenting to you my second listener-requested show themed 'Ethel/Ethyl' which will feature an interview with Michael Roe of The 77's (their song 'Earache' is my theme music). I will be mixing Sevens tunes in with Frank's in the same vein as my recent Beatles/Zappa show. Come and find out what the continuity is in this pairing ~ See you all there, and don't forget to break out yer headphones!"

    Break Out Yer Headphones and join us for this week's Secret Word: "Some Assembly Required - Volume 2"


    This is a follow up show to Volume 1 which we aired in February. It picks up where that episode left off in the late 60's and it features more behind the scenes shenanigans, rehearsal recordings, outtakes and other ephemera culled from the vaults by Joe Travers.

      FYI

      In listening to a recent show you passed a comment/question regarding Twig's painting of the Dweezil Zappa Band.

      Freak Out  Succession Of Invention, where you may wonder if it was done in photoshop.

      To clarify any question you may have, it is a painting done on canvas.

    Join us for this week's Secret Word: "Freak Out! ~ The Successors of Invention, Live"

    Inspired by this artwork from Twig Twk presented to Dweezil Zappa recently on his Dweezil Zappa Plays Whatever the F@%k He Wants – The Cease and Desist Tour, I have compiled a virtual concert of MOI material utilizing all of Dweezil's live output. If you just can't get enough of Dweezil & Company, this show is for you - whether you just left a show, are waiting for their tour to hit your town, or are not going to be able to catch it...this will satisfy your requirements for Vitamins FZ & DZ (fortified with love, dedication, musicality & absurdity).
