FZ Choose To Listen This Ten Songs

FZ on KCRW radio broadcast
KCRW in Santa Monica aired a tribute to Frank Zappa which contained notes by Nicolas Slonimsky, Zappa music, and a re-broadcast of a 1989 program known as Castaway's Choice, hosted by John McNally. The program included fascinating conversation between Zappa and McNally, interspersed with excerpts from Frank's ten songs he'd take to a desert island, and his explanations why. Frank said:

``Back in the days when I had recreational listening time these are the things I would actually listen to.''

1.Octandre by Edgard Varese

2.The Royal March from L'Histoire du Soldat by Igor Stravinsky

3.The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky

4.Third Piano Concerto, first movement by Bela Bartok. Zappa: ``I think it is one of the most beautiful melodies ever written.''

5.Stolen Moments by Oliver Nelson

6.Three Hours Past Midnight by Johnny Guitar Watson

7.Can I Come Over Tonight by The Velours

8.Bagatelles for String Quartet by Anton Webern

9.The Anton Webern Symphony, Opus 21 by Anton Webern

10.Piano Concerto in G by Maurice Ravel

When asked if he could only keep one of the above, FZ picked Three Hours Past Midnight.
