Frank Zappa GSW Project Vol. 19 1978-1979 (T-1496)

This is Volume 19 in a very large collection of Frank Zappa spoken word releases. It's called the GSW Project.
GSW stands for Gigantic Spoken Word. There will be some music in there but there won't be any full live concerts in the GSW Project. They consist of radio, TV interviews and journalist reporter type personal interviews. During the radio interviews sometimes music was played as background or added before the broadcast in between questions and answers.

Sometimes FZ acts as D.J., plays records from his collection and talks to the radio audience.
But the main focus of this series is FZ interviews which to me is as interesting as his music.

Radio and TV >
Cassette and Reel generation unknown except for 1978-10-21 Saturday Night Live
which I recorded from the TV broadcast on reel-to-reel 7 1/2 ips.>

17. Fillmore album / early bands

I removed the blank spaces and fixed a few bad edits. I checked and corrected the speed. I checked and eliminated DC offset. I've included an edits removed file. If you burn as audio don't include this file on the audio disc.

I did the editing, mastering (tweaking), analog to digital transfer and artwork for this release. Don't add to, change or remove any of these files. Keep the text, md5 and artwork files unaltered, together with the FLAC's.

Don't rename directories or file names if you share this. My concern is that when people rename them they drop information like date, venue, location, T number. This information is useful to others when searching for or deciding which version of a show they want or already have.

Don't alter the sound of this recording. The T releases are not to be used as a source for anyones so called remastering projects. If you really want to do something find a better quality source recording and work from that. Don't just take the release I've already worked on and screw with it.

For Trade or Give Away Only - Do Not Sell - Do Not Encode As MP3 Virus Files - MD or any other format which degrades the quality of the recording.

You are all quite welcome.Sorry about the track naming format but T____ has his way and Zappateers has its way and they are both fine with me.The reason I mention it is because when i seeded these last time someone wondered if I could get T___ to change the way he named the tracks.This is how they are going to be so you will have to look in the text to see what part of an interview is on what track.
