Peaches & Regalia in Laurel Canyon



My ears pricked up when I heard the Radio 2 trailer for Laurel Canyon, because it’s rare to hear Frank Zappa’s name mentioned on the radio. Of course the programme was on when I wanted to watch Rev so I caught it on Listen Again. It’s about various musicians and bands who have lived in Laurel Canyon: the Byrds, the Doors, Joni Mitchell and of course, Frank Zappa. The programme is introduced by Micky Dolenz and the best thing about it is the music. Just saying, in case anyone else wants to catch up before the second episode.

For those who wish I’d say something about books rather than witter on about Peter O’Toole or Frank Zappa, look here for the ten most expensive books sold on AbeBooks in July.
