The Secret Word is "Self Indulgence, Part 1". I tried to make this show last week, but it evolved into "Stygian Serviette Sculptures" - so here comes Take 2 on a theme.

The Secret Word is "Stygian Serviette Sculptures". Some...times a show takes on a life of it's own - and this is one of them. I sat down with a theme in mind, and I had to put that one aside for another day - as this morphed into a show I have wanted to do since day one.

    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 weru(.org) for the rest of us. The Secret Word is "Frankly Koen Fu". We will be serving up Koen Fu's stellar solo debut "Home Alone", blended with exclusive bonus tracks and seasoned with choice Zappa cuts. Our shows pairing other artists with Zappa are always fan favourites and this one is sure to take over the top spot. We usually align Frank with his "contemporaries" to prove the point that lack of exposure and preconceived notions are why his music hasn't crossed as many ears as it should. This is only the second time we have deemed an artist worthy to stand up to the test based on their obvious talent, love of music and clear influence of The Master shining through Michael Roe/The 77's was the other, and that remains one of our highest rated/most requested shows). 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 "Captain Interstellar Outrageous Sensation". It's Frank meets Floyd culminating in the sound check rendition of "Interstellar Overdrive" with Pink Floyd in Belgium '69 (with Barrett, Beefheart, GTOs, Wild Man Fischer & Steven Reich thrown in for good measure).

    Last week the station's computer crashed and reverted to the previous week's show, so...Join us Saturday Night at Midnight EST for Conceptual Continuity with HowieZowie and sCreamGrrrl on WERU FM (broadcasting live/streaming/archiving). The Secret Word is "Girls Night Out On Mars.” This show is inspired by a request from our dear friend Maureen "Mars" Blomgren (a listener/supporter of our show from day one - and a fellow broadcaster...look for her new show "Tales From Mars" on Kicking Up Roots Radio). Mars asked for a show showcasing women's contributions to Zappa's music. Mars will make an appearance and we’ll be featuring some special interviews with surprise guests that suit our theme perfectly. This one is for the girls - see you there, so Break Out Yer Headphones and be sure to take your clothes off when you dance!
