The reason behind this tribute is the documentary Frank Zappa - A pioneer of the future of music part I & II, recently made by Dutch documentary filmmaker Frank Scheffer. Along with part I of A pioneer of the future of music, Holland Doc will show the two famous documentaries Roelof Kiers made in 1971: Zappa and Frank Zappa films 200 Motels, and the documentary The Present-day Composer refuses to die, made by Frank Scheffer in 2000. For the real hardcore fans of Frank Zappa, Holland Doc will also present an episode of the pop program Wonderland, that hasn't been broadcasted since 1976. In this episode director Charles Leeuwenkamp follows two illustrious ex-band members of Zappa's "Mothers of Invention", Mark Volman en Howard Kaylan, alias Flo & Eddie during a sightseeing tour in Hollywood. On the site www.hollanddoc.nl/zappa, Holland Doc will broadcast a Zappa concert that took place during the summer of 1970 which was aired in the classic VPRO show Piknik. On the website we also present the Supplement Tape, made by Co de Kloet in 1990 as a tribute to Zappa's fiftieth birthday and his four hour 'Freakoutshow', in which he interviews rock journalists and musicians who worked with Zappa.
