For Your Saturday Night Viewing Pleasure

Frank Zappa on Saturday Night Live in 1978. Enjoy.


  1. Gotta love that "guitar microphone" John Belushi was using (gee, why didn't those ever catch on?), a precursor to the Garth Brooks weird alien face attachment.

    The Zappa orchestral piece is embarrassingly funny -- those guys thought they were so cool! But it really sounds kind of tame by today standards. I kinda wish Zappa had sung one of his songs instead of just stood there and conducted.
