    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 "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)

    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 "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.

    Join us tonight @ Midnight EST 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. We will be at a festival, so we are replaying one of our most popular shows. The Secret Word is "Stache Stash" and features an extensive interview with the "Grandson of R&B", Lucky Otis - son of Shuggie Otis and Miss Mercy. We will go deep into the architecture of R&B/Rock & Roll and explore the common grounds of the Otis & Zappa families - punctuating the conversation with picks from Johnny Otis, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Pete "Guitar" Lewis, Don & Dewey, Frank Zappa, Shuggie Otis, The GTOs, Don "Sugarcane" Harris and Dweezil Zappa.

    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 "Clone Theory". Based on the concept that synthesized music is akin to cloning, the theory is pairing Zappa's Synclavier music with the adventurous outings of some other artists more known for their organic reproduction. Among those also being centrally scrutinized include Dweezil Zappa, Gary Sloan & Clone, Orbis (Michael Roe & Mark Harmon of The 77's), Neil Young, Paul McCartney, and Ozric Tentacles.

    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!
