Frank Zappa on Crossfire -=(1986)



Text with YouTube.com video
Zappa: The biggest threat to America today is not communism; it's moving America towards a fascist theocracy and everything that has happened during the Reagan administration. Is steering us right down that pipe

Frank Zappa on Crossfire (1987) - Part I


Text with YouTube.com video:
Most of us have seen the earlier one of Zappa on CNNs "Crossfire" from 1986. This is a follow up clip recorded sometime in July (I think) 1987.

This follow up video deals with the whole "ratings" system BS. This one is hosted by Peter Gemma & Michael Kinsley. Guests are Frank Zappa and the PMRC toadie Jeff Ling. Believe it or not, one of the BS questions was "Does rock music cause AIDS".

Frank Zappa's views on censorship weren't "ahead for his times" actually - but more in line with old "classic liberalism" [or what we in the late 20th century know it as: "libertarianism"].

I hope y'all enjoy this clip as much as I did. Don't forget to see Part - II as well -- I had to split the clip because YouTube only allows 10 minute clips

PMRC and Censorship of Music in America


Tipper Gore was offended by Prince's "Darling Nikki" song when viewing it with a younger viewer, and there it started, the PMRC movement began.

I like Prince's version of the below song, but I found the below rendition of the lyrics comical:


1920s style "Darling Nikki"
