Arbitrarily, capriciously, and for no reason. That is how I choose the theme for the recaps. Tonight, dementites and dementoids, we will be paying tribute to one of the formative influences of my early adulthood; the Dr. Demento Show. If he were only responsible for bringing Weird Al to the masses, that would have been enough, but by my calculation, Dr. D's been playing funny songs on the radio for 40 years now! If you are fortunate enough to live in an area where the good doctor is still broadcast, I would urge you to support the show in whatever capacity you can. If not, I was pleased to find that episodes are available in MP3 format on the official website, and many of the classic songs are readily available on YouTube. I'll play a few of my favorites here, hopefully you'll enjoy them too.
