Why don't they play Frank Zappa on the radio?

Asked by truecomedian (3932points) March 16th, 2010

Never hear his music, and he was such a good musician.

The radio always plays the opposite of good music.

His music doesn’t lend itself to the “playlist” 3 minute song format.

Maybe it’s because he’s the “George Carlin” or music? Lol.

Because that would require listeners to think and stuff. Heaven for-fend.

I totally know who you’re talking about, but I’ve never heard his music before. Where should I start?

He was pretty radical in his day and even more radical now. “Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention” was the first concert I ever went to. Amazing!

It’s not so much Lucille but what he caught.
