Who'd a thunk it but there is a connection between Frank and bicycles. Take a gander at this vintage footage of a VERY young and VERY proper Frank Zappa on the Steve Allen show.

Dang, I thought it was gonna be a quiz, and I could be first answering "He played one"

Miss you Frank, and thanks for sneaking me into that show at the church in Grand Rapids. I owe you one!

Pretty cool allusion by Steve Allen to a coaster brake brand, at 4:00 part 1. "You wanna play the New Departure Blues?"

If you'll sit down in your seats, we'll make an attempt at playing "Brown Shoes Don't Make It" for you. Jazz is not dead, it just smells funny.

God! This is a tasty little sucker

One of the best Youtubes everer. Thanks for posting.

Frank may have been "proper," but you could tell even then that he was never quite proper.

Great, great stuff.

Ruth rode on my cycle car
on the seat in back of me
I took a bump at 95
and rode on Ruthlessly


That little diddy apparently goes back to at least the '20s (with 55 instead of 95).
