I have never even heard about this before!
Fairly subversive ABC-TV show in the "Smothers Brothers" mold. This was produced not long after the Amougies festival appearance.
Frank appears at 16:30 and 28:33.
Also features a gorgeous Linda Ronstadt, and Donovan with words of peace, love, and eternal cosmic wisdom.

Anthropologically, this is a gold mine.

For those living in Southern California in the early to mid 70s, this YouTube channel is an incredible resource.

Use a VPN client, f.ex. Tunnel Bear, and you can pretend to be in the USA Smile

Thanks for this great find!

I had never heard of Murray Roman before. Wow. His sarcastic demeanor seems way ahead of its time for a talk show host, given this is 1970, and is a perfect match for FZ.

Any idea what FZ said that was bleeped when referring to what Paris "used to be famous for"?

Also the only time I've heard him reference the moon landing.

I only know him from his LP around that time A Blind Man's Movie which had a solid black gatefold cover (except for the spine).

A bit of conceptual continuity:

Quote:
Jeff: That's how he gets his material. He listens to us being natural, friendly, humorous and good-natured, then he rips us off, sneaks off into a secret room someplace and boils it in ammonia, and gets it perverted. Then he brings it back to us at a rehearsal and makes us play it.

Ian: I've been in the group for years and let me tell you that is exactly, that is precisely what he does: He steals all his material.

Mark: And the stuff he doesn't steal, Murray Roman writes for him. Listen, without us he'd be nothing!

Another bit of conceptual continuity...

Used to sing to you about Atlantis"
