Hi everyone! It was fun to do this show, which smacks of classic Deep Cuts. What you must know is that I ingested copious amounts of Zappa's "Roxy" DVD and it gave me this crazy, goofy energetic high that found it's way into my selections. So, eerily recalling the days when I was starting out and excessively nervous, I took my heartbeat as a tempo on a lot of this and played some really fast moving stuff.

This episode also developed a European theme by accident - we have such diverse nationalities represented as Russia, Italy, France, Switzerland, and even Romania. I don't play as much foreign language prog as I'd like, so I'm very proud that this show is heavy on non-English speaking bands.

Another theme that developed is a focus on new releases. This made it very fresh to me.

We end up, however, somewhat predictably at the Roxy Theater in Hollywood, with one of the greatest bands of all time. Frank Zappa and the Mothers. The year is 1973 and boy is it a scorcher.
