Lost 1967 Zappa interview tape found again
Joe Doll was one of the DJ:s that did the interview in Detroit for WCBN, the student-run community radio station of University of Michigan. He thought the tape was lost but recently found it, almost 50 years after it was recorded. It has now been digitized and uploaded for the world to hear.
Listen or download here.
The sound is really good and it is one of the better interviews with Frank. The earlier interviews with Frank are often the more interesting ones.
Some of the topics are Frank's impressions of The Mothers of Invention's first European tour (September and October 1967), his collaboration with The Monkees (which the people around first seem to take as a joke) and his opinion on The Beatles (surprisingly quite positive!)
