Frank Zappa
1967-1968
GSW Project Vol. 01
(T-1478)

This is the first Volume in a very large collection of Frank Zappa spoken word releases. It's called the GSW Project. GSW stands for Gigantic Spoken Word. There will be some music in there but there won't be any live concerts in the GSW Project. They consist of radio interviews and journalist reporter type personal interviews. During the radio interviews sometimes music was played as background or added before thebroadcast in between questions and answers. Sometimes FZ acts as D.J., plays records from his collection and talks to the radio audience.
But the main focus of this series is FZ interviews which to me is as interesting as his music.

FZ as D.J.


This recording sounds like it was made in the radio station control room rather than the broadcast version.
FZ comments are heard which were not broadcasted. He comments, while the music is playing, about the smoke dectector in the bathroom and that the song is going to end soon. A phone ringing can sometimes be heard while the record is playing and the broadcast mic would have been off. The phone ringing also can be heard during talk time when the broadcast mic would have been on. FZ says goodbye and mic handling sounds can be heard as someone carries the recorder and mic away while the last song is being played. This very well could have been recorded by FZ. I got it from UG at ZARK many years ago. UG ran the Zappa Archives, was good friends with FZ and had many rare tapes.
