"How Radio Was Done"  Part 83
We begin 1985 and this one is mostly devoted to language censorship in music and features Frank Zappa from some of the many media interviews he did on the subject around ’85. This is when the “PMRC” emerged as a religiously motivated group looking to label Rock albums for obscene language. Zappa debates them on radio and TV (Larry King, Crossfire, Johnny Carson) backed up in this mix with some examples and lots of Receptacle callers.
3 Hours.
