Frank Zappa retrospective

An hour from 1985 with Frank Zappa, the legendary musician whose eccentric genius turned the music world on its ear. He was a champion of free speech, and when he saw it being threatened in the mid 80s by a move that would slap warning labels on albums, he spoke out at hearings, through his music and directly to people- in this case CBC Radio's Cross Country Checkup.
