We've got a special "Ten O'Clock Doc" set for you this time, with two of Doc's visits to WNCW back in the 1990's: Doc with Wayne Henderson and Charles Welch from March of 1996, and with Jack Lawrence from March of 1997.

Here are the two podcasts from these sessions:

WNCW host Marshall Ballew first paid tribute to the musical genius of Frank Zappa on the airwaves back in December 1993 when the news of Zappa's death broke. The spotlight became a weekly feature and, after other hosts, most notably Dave Wall, carried the torch along the way, Marshall came back in 2016 to give us our weekly dose of Frank on Friday. In addition to airing the show every Friday night, we're now thrilled to make it available as a weekly podcast as well.
