Today marks what would have been Frank Zappa's 70th Birthday. Since the composer's death in 1993, The Zappa Family Trust have released almost 20 posthumous albums, many drawn from Zappa's vast tape archive "The Vault". In this programme, Jim Gardner talks to Tim Dodd about these releases, and Zappa's evolving musical legacy.
