Episode 95 – Ahmet Zappa

Zappa talks about his new AXS TV memorabilia show

AXS TV puts the spotlight on an eclectic array of passionate collectors and the incredible music items they hold dear in the all-new music memorabilia series Rock My Collection — premiering Sunday, August 15th at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT. Hosted and executive produced by Ahmet Zappa — the best-selling author, producer, musician, and head of the iconic Frank Zappa Estate — Rock My Collection is a celebration of some of the world’s most legendary music artifacts connected to an impressive roster of industry trailblazers.

Joining Zappa on this entertaining musical odyssey is Stephen MH Braitman of MusicAppraisals.com, an accredited senior appraiser affiliated with the American Society of Appraisers, who specializes in music archives and memorabilia and has worked directly with many notable artists and estates. Using his encyclopedic knowledge and unparalleled expertise, Braitman delivers a unique perspective on the origins of each item and is on-hand to provide a detailed estimate. After appraisal, collectors will have the opportunity to keep their items or put them up for auction where viewers can bid on select rare and often one-of-a-kind items featured.

Zappa joins us Buddy Iahn and Matt Bailey to discuss how he became involved with the series and tease what fans will see on the show. We also ask Zappa about his father’s estate and show off a couple of our own collectibles, per his request.
