    Steve Allan was an idiot.

    Man…..When I got up this morning. I never would have dreamed. I’d see Frank Zappa playing a bicycle on the Steve Allen Show. & that’s why I love Youtube. & just made it a Favorite thanks for posting.

    Young Zappa bears more than a passing resemblance to Milo Ventamiglia.

    Steve Allen was great. He was no intellectual slouch. No doubt Zappa respected him and vice versa

    I agree, he could have torn Steve up, but he was being so polite…

    Thank you so much for posting this. Two of my greatest childhood heroes whom I got to meet and talk with later in life. I miss them both.

  15. Theakker3 says:

    It’s crazy that Steve Allen actually lived longer than Zappa.

  16. KCJazzKeys says:

    Great post. Nice to see Zappa while he was still relatively unknown

  17. vinzer72frie says:

    FUCKING AMAZING

  18. MumfredMigglesworth says:

    I like how polite and good-humored Frank is here.

  19. caiaum2 says:

    damn he was so different!!

  20. AutisticPersona says:

    Sadly, in 2000

  21. whiteclifffl says:

    Did Steve Allen die?

  22. drruth82 says:

    The sidekick to Steve Allen is the Dad in “A Christmas Story”

  23. miketodd67 says:

    It’s weird seeing him without his moustache.

  24. senselessstudios says:

    steve allen wasn’t the only talk show host that acted or acts like this, a ton of them do… people should lighten up. besides that, it’s really cool seeing zappa do something like this on tv, especially for that time. experimental sound art is tons of fun and an awesome way to express yourself.
