In his life, Frank Zappa released over 60 albums total and recorded dozens more that never saw the light of day. Kevin Ferguson talks with Gail Zappa--Frank’s widow--and Joe Travers--the Zappa family's official archivist--about how you maintain an archive for one of the most prolific musicians of all time. Gail and Joe will be giving a more in depth talk about the Zappa archives in Downtown LA on Thursday, May 12 as part of the Association for Record Sound Collections' 45th annual conference.
