Hi & Howdie Doodie!
(Are you a union man, and may I call you Rudy?)
A Thread is the line of messages on any topic; you added your comment to the 
subject message and I have added along. All of these posts on this topic 
constitute a thread...
As for "downloading shows", that's a much tougher question. It's done easily, 
but it does require software. The latest trend is torrenting - something I have 
yet to try. For an "old school" newbie like yourself, I would say that joining 
a vine is the quickest way to build up an FZ starter collection; you know: 
crawl before you walk, walk before you jog, jog before you run, etc... Copying 
an existing disk is much easier than downloading off the Net.
Welcome to the List!

        Hi Group

        I'm ashamed to kind of admit this, I've been a voyuer here on this 
group, I'm not exactly sure how to download or know much about the internet 
(I'm very, very old school)...

        But i wanted to get in on this...I'd have to agree, the cleverest FZ 
song ever is St. Alphonzo's Pancake Breakfast.  The entire Apostrophe is a very 
clever piece, extremely clever...

        Been a FZ fan for many, many years, wrote him a letter when I once 
worked for a music magazine.  He signed an autograph for me.

        We lost a national treasure when he passed on.  

        So I guess I'm saying hello to the group and if anyone wouldn't mind, 
can someone explain what a "thread" means and is it possible for me to actually 
download shows into my computer and onto a blank CD?  

        Thanks for all help and input...please write and say hi to me.

            Looking purely for personal opinions here. What is the cleverest 
Zappa song? Pick whatever definition of clever works for you. I'll go first: I 
choose St. Alphonzo's Pancake Breakfast.
