40 Years of Alternative Programming at U-M's WCBN
No monkey business was tolerated in the prehistoric era of student radio at U-M.
The Zappa Family Trust has regained the entire music catalog of Frank Zappa. In honor of this achievement, the trust has partnered with Universal Music Enterprises to release 60 recordings – in physical and digital editions – beginning July 2012. Every month, 12 recordings will be released, through the end of the year. Many of these recordings, which originally appeared on Zappa’s independent label Barking Pumpkin Records, have been re-mastered.
The track listing for the first release of albums is as follows: 1. Freak Out! (1966) 2. Absolutely Free (1967) 3. Lumpy Gravy (1968) 4. We’re Only In It For The Money (1968) 5. Cruising With Ruben & The Jets (1968) 6. Uncle Meat (1969) 7. Hot Rats (1969) 8. Burnt Weeny Sandwich (1970) 9. Weasels Ripped My Flesh (1970) 10. Chunga’s Revenge (1970) 11. Fillmore East, June 1971 (1971) 12. Just Another Band From L.A. (1972)
