Go inside the recording studio with Frank zappa, tonight on The depths.

Greetings fellow music travelers.

For the final session of The Depths of the decade, I have a special feature for you in the first hour of our journey together. We are going to go deep inside the studio as Frank Zappa leads a stellar group of world-class musicians through recording the basic tracks for what would become his ground-breaking second solo album, "Hot Rats."

Then, we'll explore other historically-significant treasures from the past that were unearthed during this decade from Santana, Humble Pie, Joe Cocker, John Coltrane and more.

Remembering Jack Scott and 1959 music this week on The Early Years!

Like Snow White FM, The Early Years doesn't take a break either, even if there are those who wish it would. That's because The Early Years precedes Snow White FM and Snow White FM follows The Early Years. Cool that.
Syntactically, it's the end of the decade even though the Common Era started in year 1 not year 0. 60 years ago, the fifties decade was becoming the sixties decade even though the purists dispute that; just like they believe that 2020 is the end of a decade rather than the beginning of one.

SnowWhiteFM for Dec 28

In the first hour of SnowWhiteFM this week, we'll find out just who actually had a white christmas this year, and it wasn't you. We'll hear about the highway patrol officer who could run 60 miles per hour, and hear all the stupid holidays that you might otherwise have missed. That plus a great lineup of tunes from the late 60's.
Hour 2 features a rundown of the current weather around the nation, a look at this day in history, and a fun trip into the early 70's. And, we'll have coffee with Ed Potter.
And hour 3 is just some of the best darned music on the planet.

Christmas is all about tradition
