Many Frank Zappa fans may already know this but there is a Kickstarter campaign to save the Zappa music vault as well as make a definitive documentary about the man.  It's backed by the Zappa Family Trust and being run by Alex Winter (Bill from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure).  There's some pretty cool and absurd rewards (including Zappa's house!).  The campaign has four days left if anyone's interested:

Zappa is a prog addict staple, but let's not let this creative genius fall into obscurity beyond those impassioned few.  Zappa is one of America's greatest modern composers.....there should be a monument erected to him on the mall in Wash., D.C.  In fact, the US should mark one day a year dedicated to Zappa....cross-dressing, cigarettes and coffee, music created from dropping buckets of silverware into a steel drum, and ecstatic guitar solos will be de rigur. 
I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

Can't donate a single for now, but I hope something good comes from this. More looking forward to the complete inventory of the studio tapes, as opposed to what could be on them.

Ultimately this effort raised over $1.1 million dollars...
