    LOVE Dr. D! I used to lay on the floor in the living room of my parent’s house, with the headphones on, taping his shows so I wouldn’t miss any songs I didn’t have yet. Then I would memorize them and hide the tapes so my friends wouldn’t take them. Live long and prosper, Dr. Demento! We love you!

  3. I really like your interview with Dr Demento. I to had a hit on the Dr Demento show called Have a Peanut Butter Sandwich which you can check out at

  4. Penngwinn says:

    I loved this episode. Dr. Demento is so knowledgeable and with it. Also, I loved the song by Dan at the end.

  5. Mike Wise says:

    I love that he mentioned, briefly, that he used to host specials on MTV, that is how I first got introduced to a lot of the ‘staples’. I first saw the video for Fish Heads by Barnes and Barnes on one of his MTV specials. Once I found him on the radio I would stay up late on Sunday nights and listen to him. Great memories.

  6. Marty_Graw says:

    I grew up listening to Dr Demento and Weird Al, thanks to my dad so this was yet another badarse episode to stumble across.
