Donate to WCBN!

WCBN’s annual fundraiser is running until February 21. Your support during these ten days puts new music on the shelf and fixes broken turntables; we need you for our day to day. We ask now that you “resubscribe” to the freeform radio that you love, and support the continued education and cultural enrichment of students at the University of Michigan.

Give us a call or donate online, and keep listening.

Zappa Family Trust Regains Control of Frank Zappa’s Catalog

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)
