Hello! Boy, got y'all JAMMED in here, don't they? What's
that say? "Thanks for coming, what's the secret word for tonight? Your buddies
Dirk, Tom and Tommy."
Okay . . . Alright, guys, you're looking for another secret
word? The secret word for tonight is "Zappa Concert Tales!"
Let me try 'n explain this to you, folks: This afternoon at
the hotel I was introduced for the first time to Sam Rouse, and Sam was going
to give up his website tonight, and he was going to let it die. Fortunately he
spoke about it on AFFZ and... this afternoon I actually learned how to host a
reggae version of "Zappa Concert Tales" and I've been trying to decide whether
or not I oughta host it even if Sam's not gonna host it. Now, maybe you can
help me decide. How many people would like to read Zappa Concert Tales
if Sam is not going to host it? How many people DON'T want to read Zappa
Concert Tales? I think most people want to read Zappa Concert

Hi, it's me. This is a note. It's a chance for me to talk about
Frank Zappa Concert Tales. These stories are, in my opinion, an important part
of the legacy of Frank Zappa. I never saw him in concert, and I wish I had. To
see Zappa in concert, a live show, and I do mean live, well, I'll bet that
would have been a memorable concert. If you are reading this and you have a
memory of seeing Frank Zappa's music, performed meticulously by a group of top
flight musicians who have been schooled in its subtleties, you are a fortunate
soul. And if you have any memory of that experience, of seeing Frank Zappa in concert, on stage, live, guitar in hand, well,
please send me your concert tale. My address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for
reading and thanks for contributing. Frank Zappa Concert Tales is important to
me, and I appreciate that you would take the time to read this, especially this
piece down here that I would have thought no one would have read. May Frank
Zappa Concert Tales bring you peace.
