CBC Radio

IDEAS is a deep-dive into contemporary thought and intellectual history. No topic is off-limits. In the age of clickbait and superficial headlines, it's for people who like to think.

Listen to the last episode:

Frank Zappa redefined what it was to be a composer in our time. But what was his impact on those who worked most closely with him? In this three part-documentary series about the legendary musician, hear from family members, musicians and others who worked with him, as well as excerpts from a CBC interview with Zappa, recorded the year before his death.
