  • "Posted anywhere for the first time is the Gary Titone appearance that was in the very beginning of the show."

    Who is Gary Titone? I realize he's the kid with the spandex shorts, but is he someone notable? Google doesn't seem to have anything interesting on him.

  • Gary Titone is a long time Zappa fan that was known to Zappa concert regulars "back in the day".

    Gary was a guy that just liked Zappa and made it onto this appearance.

  • oh definitely, yeah

  • What a drag that there was never the Zappa interviewing TV show.

  • I was born 9 days before this. I am hopeful that most, just as myself, can really appreciate such genius.

  • Can anyone imagine Frank Zappa in this day and age? Very sadly, I can't.

  • Is Frank doing air-guitar on 09:01? Good stuff, uploader, thanks!

  • Why does Frank Zappa always seem to be the most intelligent guy in the room? It doesn't matter who, what, where, when, or why, but he always seems to be.

  • The studio acoustics weren't good enough for Zappa's style

  • "I'm a composer"

    Understatement of the century. Of the millenium.

    As a young composer myself, this is the most encouraging thing I've ever seen. Thank you so much, DRMUX.

  • Amazing footage...and before Frank changed his lifestyle...ahem!

  • I never knew that.Thanks for seeing through my snarkiness and giving me a plausible,interesting answer.

  • Frank did not become a jerk after he "acknowledged the fact that he hated the God". That happened a long time ago before his appearance on Steve Allen show in 1963.

    Actually, he changed into that "bitter asshole" when he became a victim to entrapment in 1965. He was sentenced to 6 months in prison, but he only had to spent 10 days there. Still this brief imprisonment left a permanent mark and was key in the formation of his anti-authoritarian stance. Which is very understandable, in my opinion.

  • this was in '63

  • To be honest I didn't expect the 50s (?) humor to make me laugh but it did.

  • wow! he looks so young what a great clip/thanks to ms magical cat for sending me this!!

  • My gosh! Frank Zappa so neat-looking in 1963!

    Completely different from what he's done in the 70's

  • that's the most intelligent thing you've said to me.

  • Oink?

  • i bet you believe santa lives at the magnetic north pole don't you. that's ridiculous since the magnetic pole migrates. santa would constantly be packing up the workshop and moving the elves and reindeer all over the place. YOU are ignoring the truth that santa obviously lives at the geographic pole; for it is written. here's a prophecy for you; in the future there will be great wars, famine, earthquakes and killer storms that people will attribute to whichever god(s) they believe in.believe it!

  • ....And just what religion is famously known as the "religion of peace"????The Truth is right in front of your face,and you can't see it.
