bob guy

In the early sixties, Bob Guy was a local TV horror movie host who wanted to make a record. He drove out to studio Z in a white cadillac, wearing a business suit and horn rimmed glasses. Frank Zappa wrote both tracks and played most of the instruments, with Dick Barber on backup vocals and percussion.
The tracks were released on a bunch of samplers as well.

from the "Paul Buff presents the PAL and Original Sound studio archives, vol.1" liner notes by Greg Russo:
"Another single licensed to Donna was Bob Guy's "Dear Jeepers"/ "Letter From Jeepers." Guy was a local radio personality and Zappa wrote both of these Dracula-inspired send-ups. The A-side is included here, and again, the flip will be featured later. "

from the "Paul Buff presents the PAL and Original Sound studio archives, vol.19" liner notes by Greg Russo:
"Another surf title, Johnny Barakat's "Go Surfer Mo (El Zebra)," takes us into The Hollywood Persuaders' "Organ Stomp." That HP track was not released until recently. The Frank Zappa-written B-side of the Bob Guy single, "Letter From Jeepers," is yet another piece of lunacy!"
